WE DELIVER LIGHTING SOLUTIONS WITHIN ANY AREA.
WE ARE QUICK, INNOVATIVE AND EFFICIENT AGAINST MANAGED COSTS.
NCL London was conceptualised in 2013 in response to the changing landscape in architecture and construction.
Our unique approach is geared towards stripping out complexity and costs, and focusing on driving results.
Founded by Rowena Preiss who brings a unique wealth of experience from both the independent sector and the multinational.
“Many in body, one in mind”.
We are really passionate about lighting, about seeing results and believing that anything is possible.
We are committed to finding the best solutions unique to each project.
We design with great care and attention in the awareness of the valuable energy needed to illuminate.
Key to our projects is the longevity of any installation maintaining a post completion watching brief for 5 years. Why?
Because we are committed to achieving incredible results, we care about what we do and the long-term impact this has on the environment and people.
International recognition for all of our designers by name for their work and global awareness of the benefits of our input.
Our vision is to become the the first port of call for any lighting solution and to be recognised globally for our exceptional work of award winning projects that enhance the environment.
We will reduce costs and get to the best solution for your project.
We will bring in the right experts at the right time delivering the information in a timely way that facilitates the process in order to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
