Scheduling:

Scheduling:

Our Schedule page is very detailed and will allow us to estimate all of the materials required to execute our lighting plan. It is very important to do this early in the design process well before electrical rough-in begins. This gives the client the opportunity to adjust the lighting materials based on budget. This is also critical in getting an accurate electrical proposal from the electrician. It is much less expensive to change the information on paper that to do it in the field.

Power and Controls

Power and Controls

The 2.0 series sheets represent the Power and controls pages. This shows where all of the power receptacles, speakers, TV, Phone and internet devices are located. It is also the sheet that shows all of the control keypads, touch screens and specialty type equipment. This keeps the page that shows the lighting much easier to read and understand.

Lighting Pages

Lighting Pages

The 3.0 series sheets represent the lighting pages. On this sheet each item is given a tag number that co-ordinates to the lighting schedule. All light fixtures are given location dimensions, and are coordinated with sprinklers, speakers, beams and decorative lighting. This is also the page that shows switching or load numbers. During electrical walk though meetings all of these pages are updated to give the client final as built drawings.
