Paul Covell Consultants was formed in 1990 to provide specialist architectural lighting design services, particularly for churches and other places of worship, as well as theatre consultancy services for smaller entertainment venues.  Although no longer active as theatre consultants, our theatre work included spatial planning, staging / seating / sightline studies, and technical systems specification and integration, much of which remains highly applicable to places of worship.  We relocated to Scotland in 2015 but continue to work on projects throughout the UK, currently from the the north of Caithness to Dorset, Somerset and Devon.


As a small cost-effective design consultancy with no commercial links we can look after your lighting needs by providing:

  • initial assessment of requirements

  • detailed design specifications and drawings

  • assistance with obtaining approvals from the relevant statutory bodies

  • monitoring projects during construction, installation, commissioning and handover


Our designs regularly include the production of virtual 3D models which demonstrate the concepts and enable the lighting to be'tested'.

So whether you need to up-date a tired and inefficient lighting installation, are planning to reorder or refurbish an existing place of worship, or considering a new build project, we can provide the specialist advice and design services your project merits.
