The first step in the physical installation process involves preparing the ground for the lighting infrastructure.

Concrete Footings

To ensure stability and longevity, we lay down robust concrete footings as a foundation for the light poles.

Pole Installation

Our team expertly installs the poles, ensuring they are perfectly aligned and secure.

Light Fixture Installation

The light fixtures, predominantly energy-efficient LEDs, are then mounted onto the poles, positioned for optimal light distribution.

Electrical Wiring

Our certified electricians handle all the wiring, ensuring that each light is powered efficiently and safely, with provisions for smart controllers for future adaptability.

Testing and Commissioning

Pre-commissioning Checks

Before the street lighting system is officially commissioned, it’s crucial to ensure that the installation is up to par and meets all safety and design standards. Our pre-commissioning checks include:

  1. Visual Inspection: A thorough visual assessment of the entire installation is conducted to confirm that it aligns with the design specifications and that there are no visible issues or discrepancies.
  2. Light Fixture Testing: Each individual light fixture is tested to ascertain its proper functioning. This ensures that every light will perform optimally once the system is energized.
  3. Electrical Wiring Test: The safety of our installations is paramount. We conduct meticulous tests on the electrical wiring to ensure that it is not only safe but also securely connected, minimizing any risks.


The commissioning phase is where the street lighting system is brought to life:

  1. System Energisation: The entire street lighting system is energized and tested under load conditions. This real-world testing ensures that the system can handle its operational demands.
  2. Light Level Adjustments: Once the system is live, we adjust the light levels to ensure they provide adequate illumination for their intended purpose, be it a busy street, a quiet pathway, or a public park.
  3. Sensor and Control Calibration: For street lighting systems equipped with sensors and controls, this step involves their calibration. This ensures that features like motion detection, dimming, or smart controls function as intended.

Post-commissioning Checks

After the system has been commissioned, it’s essential to re-evaluate and ensure that everything remains in optimal condition:

  1. Safety Recheck: The installation is re-examined to confirm that it remains safe and secure, especially after the system has been energised and tested.
  2. Retesting: Both the light fixtures and the electrical wiring undergo another round of testing. This ensures that they are still functioning correctly after the commissioning process.
  3. Documentation: All results from the testing and commissioning processes are meticulously documented. This provides a clear record and ensures transparency and accountability in our installation process.
