Surveys & Reports Archive

As well as office lighting designs we have carried out many surveys and reports into whether or not the lighting in a building has met the H & S Workplace Regulations or Display Screen Regulations.

Office Lighting Guides, LG3 & LG7

Paul Ruffles has rewritten the Society of Light & Lighting’s Office Lighting Guide, LG7 and was Chairman of the Task Group that wrote the CIBSE/SLL Lighting Guide LG3 ‘The visual environment for display screen use’.

Nonsuch House, Trowbridge

This three story office building for a financial services group is a listed building in the heart of Trowbridge. The accommodation consisted of public reception and consultation rooms as well as the private office accommodation. Unusual room heights and shapes as well as retained historic features added to the character of the spaces created.

National Trust Headquarters, Swindon

We provided specialist lighting design advice to the architects and engineers involved in this new environmentally friendly building. This included public areas, external spaces and special purpose areas such as the photo-library, atria and meeting rooms.

Fullwood House, Cheltenham

This is the Directorate building for the Cheltenham & Gloucester College which was completely refurbished and refitted during 2000. We designed special lighting systems for the board room and conference suite. We tailored the office lighting to the varying needs of the Directors and the support staff. Decorative as well as functional lighting was provided for the public spaces and circulation routes.

Compucenter, Hatfield

This new office and distribution centre outside Hatfield had a large multi-story atrium spanning between two office wings. The atrium formed the main entrance and reception to the building and had walkways spanning across the space at three levels with glass walled lift shafts connecting them. The lighting needed to be both dramatic and functional. The various views up and across the space meant that positioning the lights was important if unacceptable glare was to be avoided. The full-height glass front and back walls also allowed for some unusual night-time lighting effects.

Windows & Daylight

LD&T have been involved in many
‘Right of Light’ investigations and planning issues involving daylight.
We have acted for and appeared at public enquiries for both developers and for residents affected by developments. As well as this we get involved in many conventional daylighting designs for buildings.
