Lighting Design & Controls

one small turn for bulb, one giant twist for lighting

The innovation and advancement in LED technologies are transforming lighting. Maintenance, energy, and first costs are decreasing, while light levels, aesthetics, and controls are improving. It’s an exciting time for a historically conventional industry, especially if you are constructing or renovating a building or exterior space.

Regardless of the technology employed or the location of the lights inside or outside, the key to quality lighting is understanding the tasks and functions that will be performed in the space and any desired atmosphere, and matching that with standardized light levels, fixture aesthetics, and controls to maximize performance while minimizing life-cycle costs.

step out of the dark and see the whole picture

Once we understand a space’s intended function, fixture options are selected and modeled to create distribution and ISO foot-candle plans to detail light intensity levels and uniformity. Matching light levels with the space’s function is critical. When a space is “over-“ or “under-lit” performance of the people in those spaces suffers, compliance and liability issues can arise, and you could be wasting energy dollars to boot!

From there, controls and automation, like occupancy/daylight sensors, are recommended to maximize efficiency and eliminate wasted energy and unnecessary component wear. With all of this information in hand – you’re empowered to see the whole picture, from first costs to energy and maintenance, as well as a vision for how and when the space will be lit, and you can make more informed decisions to light your world.

lighting design services include:

  • Parking lot & garage

How many engineers does it take to change a light bulb?

We hope just one (assuming the required foot-candle illumination, available distribution, wattage, and fixture specifications are known).

If you’ve got light bulbs to change, fixtures to add, buildings to light, areas to make safer, whatever the charge, we are up to the task and can help you make more informed decisions.
