  • Feasibility studies

    Feasibility studies

    How likely is your project to succeed? How much will it cost and how much time will it take? We use conceptual design to explore manufacturing methods, evaluating their cost-effectiveness, execution time and economic potential. Through an innovative design process, we can advise on the most appropriate approach for your project. This short-term investment helps our clients to save time and money in the long term.

  • Technical documentation

    Technical documentation

    Support with testing and reporting on lighting product safety, lifespan and warranty. We test products according to relevant industry standards, securing third-party input and validation where required. Following our testing process, we draft detailed technical reports that can be used to demonstrate your product’s quality, safety and technical specifications, giving the relevant stakeholders confidence in your approach.

  • Research & development
