Lighting and Electrical Design

A one-stop shop

Wiring a house used to be easy. It was seen as necessary but received little thought beyond installing lights and power points. How times have changed!

If you’re building or renovating today, there are dozens of decisions to make – from deciding where the power points and indoor and outdoor lights should go, to pre-wiring for future automation, security, or spa pool. You have one chance to get it right!

Less stress when planning your build

Leck Electrical is Auckland’s specialist electrical designer, with decades of design and installation experience. We’ll work with you and your architect or draftsperson to create a complete lighting and wiring plan so everything electrical is sorted, well before the builders unload their van.

We know all things electrical, including lighting and lighting design, power, audio, visual, automation, and security. We can create a design and working plans with detailed cost estimates, so you know what to allow for and can compare apples for apples when you put your project out for tender.

Choose electricians who know design

When it comes to drafting house plans, the electrical portion of the design is often forgotten as it’s not required for building consent.

Typically, plans go out for tender, and the builder or quantity surveyor will allow a PC sum for electrical. When you choose your builder, you’re often choosing ‘their’ electrician – who may or may not have the skills to design an installation that’s right for you.

You may not even know what’s been allowed for in the electrical budget. It’s expensive to make changes after the tender stage and you may ultimately have to choose between a budget blowout or a less-than-ideal lighting and electrical design.

Lighting that enhances your life – we make light easy!

Lighting is a vital part of your building or renovation project. Yes, you want to find your way through the dark, but great lighting design can also bring a room to life and transform the way you live.

The key is having the right light, in the right place, at the right time. A light that illuminates your work, then becomes a feature in the evening. Lights that highlight a feature wall or set a scene. Ambient light for the bathroom or colour-changing lights that dim at sunset to ready your body clock for sleep.

Our experienced lighting designers will take the stress out of choosing the right solutions for your lifestyle. We’ll put you in touch with suppliers so you can see and experience how your installation will look, and then we’ll pull the whole project together for you.

A beautiful, functional and energy efficient home

By planning your electrical systems alongside your house plans, you’ll create an environment that matches your needs and desires. Your life will be easier, safer, and more comfortable in a beautiful home that you’ll never want to leave.

Choose home automation systems that save energy without compromising the way you live. You can create schedules to switch off devices that aren’t being used, turn off the aircon and lights automatically, or open and close shutters and blinds to match the daylight or weather.

We’ll save you money

We’re all about transparency and trust. We provide a detailed cost estimate so you know what things should cost and can avoid expensive variations and blowouts at the end of your project.

We’ll work to your pre-determined budget and create a design according to your ideas of value versus quality. We can often negotiate discounts through our trade accounts and pass these savings on to you.

Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Confirm whether your site has sufficient power for your project
  • Liaise with the lines company if an upgrade is needed, and ensure you know the cost upfront
  • Tell you all about fibre, power supply requirements, maximum demand and loading on your appliances
  • Help you choose placement of power outlets, wall and ceiling lights, outdoor and landscape lighting
  • Explain the difference between warm and cool light and how to use them to best effect
  • Provide options for switch plates that match your décor or ‘disappear’ for a minimal look
  • Home automation options and costs
  • Future proofing for future electric vehicles, landscape projects, pool, spa or sauna
  • Security systems including alarms and CCTV
  • Automated gates and intercom
