    Hello guys,

    I was wondering when i look at big public buildings they light them up with big flashy purple/blue lights from bottom to the top and highlight the corners and the shapes of it, if i could do the same with my building somehow (cheap). If anyone here is an electrician expert with a "good taste" in exterior designing i would be willing to listen to what he says and maybe we can cooperate In a way. I live in west sussex, bognor regis.


    Cheers

    I'll travel to Sussex if you'll pay mileage, accommodation and PD's

    LEDs are the obvious choice these days, but the control may need a bit of thinking about.

    What sort of building are you trying to light?

    You will need to have a chat with your local councils planning department before investing a lot of money and time.

    As to the design,. without seeing the building and the setting ( the surrounding land and buildings ) no one can offer any applicable advice.
