How it all began
Whilst working on complex hospitality and public projects in the late 1970’s, one of Norman Disney & Young’s principals – an electrical engineer with a lighting design diploma – became increasingly involved in providing specialist lighting design services. Frustration developed after his team’s work was simply categorised under the broad term ‘electrical engineering’ and not treated as a specialised design discipline.
It was not until we won a large design commission for the Sheraton Mirage Hotel in 1986 that the lighting design team was identified as a contributing participant.
Accordingly, a specialist division was set up in 1988, and NDYLIGHT was born. This coincided with the firm being awarded an extensive lighting design commission for the Brisbane Southbank Park project. From there, design studios were set up in Sydney, Melbourne, London and Brisbane. The key is to be able to provide clients with the best possible lighting design service, independently or with support from other NDY operations.
Now in our 27th year, and with design projects in virtually every part of Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Europe, and with active involvement in every major lighting body, NDYLIGHT is a major player in the lighting design market and well-placed to grow and expand in the next 27 years.
