The Gillard Group sources, but also designs and coordinates construction of, bespoke luminaries, like our international award winning Tester.
Sometimes, we cannot find a quality fitting to match a client’s requirements or event. Sometimes it is cost – the retail price for quality cove lights is four times the unit price we achieved for a client.
Sometimes, clients seek future value – our bespoke wall light has an interchangeable facade plate which can be reshaped/coloured to match future buildings and the lantern luminaire can snake horizontally or be suspended vertically down a void in any colour.
Sometimes, it is a constraint – like our innovative design to light a church bell tower to satisfy heritage controls.
Apart from our design cost, we do not profit from product. The unit price is what the manufacturer sets.
