3. Our Services
3.1 We will exercise reasonable skill and care in carrying out the services you have ordered from us.
3.2 Whilst we will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that any drawings produced by us as part of our services are accurate, you must ensure that, if your project goes to construction, all drawings and measurements are checked on site by your appointed contractors before work commences. We will not be liable for any inaccuracies that come to light after work commences.
3.3 Any planning and design drawings produced by us as part of our services should be relied on for planning and design development purposes only. If your project goes to construction, they are not a substitute for detailed technical drawings, which will be required to ensure a safe coordinated installation that complies with Building Regulations.
3.4 Any specifications we produce should be relied on for planning and design development purposes only. If your project goes to installation it will remain the responsibility of the on site electrical designer/electrician/installer to ensure that manufacturer installation guidelines are followed and that the installation is compliant with Health and Safety regulations and current Building Regulations.
3.4 If, as part of the services, you ask us to produce any illustrative drawings to help inform your decision these will be for illustrative purposes only and should not be used to replace the production of detailed technical drawings.
3.5 Some measurements shown by us may be based on assumptions and we cannot accept any responsibility for any such inaccuracies. All setting out and site dimensions should be checked and confirmed by the installer prior to installation.
3.6 Our services are intended to be provided remotely without us carrying out a site visit of your property. You are responsible for ensuring that any measurements you provide us with are correct and accurate. We cannot accept any responsibility for any incorrect measurements provided to us (whether by you or by any third party instructed by you or acting on your behalf). If your project goes to construction, it is important that your appointed contractors attend the site to complete a full measured or cross-checking survey and discuss your specific requirements.
3.7 If we provide our services alongside other professionals you have instructed, then it is your responsibility to ensure that all information held by those other professionals that could be relevant to our services is communicated to us promptly. We will not be liable for any inaccuracies in information provided to us by those other professionals.

3.9 We do not offer any guarantee that information provided by us complies with Building Control regulations and Health and Safety regulations. Design information produced by us is intended to be used as starting point of the Lighting Design and development process. Information provided by us is to be interpreted and developed into a compliant design either by You/ Your design team and/or a suitably qualified installing contractor.
3.10 We cannot guarantee that our drawing package is fully compliant as on site conditions may result in the need to make changes to the design to ensure compliance.
3.11 Any project cost or other estimates provided by us, whether through our website or otherwise, are based on available data and averages, as well as information supplied by you, and are not definitive. They are provided for guidance purposes only and we cannot and will not accept any responsibility if they turn out to be inaccurate.
3.12 If you choose to provide us with any drawings or plans prepared by third parties (for example, other architects), we will seek to identify (but cannot and will not accept any responsibility for) any inaccuracies or inconsistencies in them and agree with you the next steps to be taken.
4.1 Home Lighting Ideas does not offer an Installation Service. All electrical work in dwellings in England and Wales whether carried out professionally or as DIY, and whether or not the work is notifiable to a building control body, must meet the requirements of Part P of the Building Regulations.
