Lighting Design & Conservation
Lighting design matches the supply of light to the needs of a space—whether a school, office, hospital, or retail store. Museums, for instance, need highlights and darker areas, whereas offices require uniform light. When working in your space, a lighting designer looks at everything from fixtures and controls to light output, level, and color. Creating a successful design does not necessarily require renovation and is sometimes possible without moving light fixtures.
Lighting design involves more than simply hanging lights from the ceiling. Lighting designers must consider efficiency, functionality, and, most importantly, the overall feel the light brings to a building. Light can affect the productivity of employees and the mood of customers. An area with excessive lighting can have the same negative effects on cost and productivity as an area that is inadequately lit. Lighting designers are able to balance these essential elements to create a cost-effective, energy-conservative, and aesthetically pleasing space to:
improve the comfort and appeal of your space with lighting design tailored to its needs;
lower your lighting bill by as much as 75% by updating layout, light levels, equipment, and controls; and
boost productivity in commercial, industrial, office, and educational settings.
