Frequently, TSL also provide services alongside the rental equipment that we provide. This involves the provision of technical crew to install, program and operate the systems. Our focus is on the level of system design and pre-production that we undertake before arriving on site. Our teams are very experienced in a wide range of productions and venues and are used to installing a system, neatly and effectively, to very demanding timescales.
Often our projects team work with a client’s independent Lighting Designer, to turn a creative idea into technical reality. However- some clients approach us with a simple creative brief and also ask us to provide a lighting design, along with our equipment and services. Several members of our team have qualifications and experience in lighting design but more commonly we will include the services of one of our network of associated independent Lighting Designers into a project. This allows us the flexibility of matching a particular creative style and specific experience to a project, to achieve an innovative and effective end result.
Combining Lighting & Rigging.
TSL are able to provide lighting and rigging systems, separately for a project. We frequently just provide rigging or just provide lighting for a production. However, as we have a true focus in both of these areas, we are able to provide a combined services, which can benefit a project in the planning and delivery stages. Our project management can take an integrated approach to the planning of both lighting and rigging, which ultimately drives greater efficiency on-site and drives better value for the customer.
Rigging involves not only the provision of hoists and trussing equipment. Frequently, system structural design / loading calculations / integration with other suppliers’ equipment are a key element of what TSL provide.
