I've been asked to price for new lighting including wiring, switching and containment.
LIGHTING ONLY.
Been some time since I last did this so some help appreciated.
I was thinking 2x2 trunking with gregs mounted. But would basket and flat 3-core & eth be quicker and easier? Is it suitable.
Support via threaded rod 8mm - suffice?
Wondering how to support the fittings??
If linear battens then on the containment, but if high bay then on own. How are they typically fitted.. with chain?
Thanks in advance.

Could still suspend or surface mount high bays off the containment. Or chain suspend fittings from the soffit and greg off the trunking as you mention. If using basket you could eliminate the gregs potentially.
Personally I'd be avoiding T&E/3C+E style cable as it smacks of house bashing. Depending on the scale of the job and the environmental considerations, I'd suggest singles in trunking or FP/LSX style on basket.
LED sources for sure. Emergency lighting - I'd look to use combined emergencies where practicable but will need some consideration.

50mm x 50mm trunking.

While we're at it: battens are 600mm, 1200mm, 1500mm...not 2ft, 4ft, 5ft etc.

Lighting Bus bar perhaps would do.......too little info really. Suspended on chain Hi Bays/Lo Bays maybe from the bus bar. Biggest limiting factor of bus is the switching capabilities but for a large area on a common switch its pretty good.
