Brewery Quarter Cork


Budget was a key element of the brief, and reduced as the project progressed. We produced detailed budgets, and a extensive value engineering exercise mindful to ensure the lighting design intent was maintained while a new budget was met.

Lighting to the rear façade was also important as this was a disjointed facade with many levels, textures and finishes. Our concept was to gently highlight the original structures, keeping the lighting treatment simple and reducing the busyness, increasing the coherence of the facade at night-time.

As part our process we provided;

  • Concept design and document, along with costings for the entire site.
  • Rolling lighting budget and detailed value engineering exercise.
  • Contractor liaison and co-ordination of lighting installation details.
  • Detailed drawings and lighting modelling for site.
  • Attendance at client, design team and contractor workshops.



  • This lighting design intent was maintained on the key façade elements of the building while at the same time meeting a challenging budget and value engineering exercise.
  • Close co-ordination with contractor and detailed drawings ensured elements like the “fin feature” and the hidden lighting on the Tudor façade were well detailed and realised.
