The Science of Lighting Design
Selections of the latest products require market knowledge and research. To know which products actually work and which are just hype is our responsibility.
Value Engineering - Budgets are achieved by proper selection of product and by design alternatives. The initial cost, cost of wiring and yearly energy costs are all part of our customers budget.
Well Being - Lighting affects the circadian rhythm in people, plants and animals. Health benefits including reduced headaches, mental fatigue and eye strain can be achieved with little upfront effort. New studies demonstrate the effects that lighting have on retail sales, office productivity and the ability to attract people to commercial downtown districts after dark.
Going Green (LEED) - Lighting accounts for 20 to 25 percent of the electricity used annually in the United States. If energy efficient lighting were used exclusively, overall energy for lighting would be reduced 50% or 12 billion per year. Balancing the use of common incandescent lamps, Halogen, Compact Fluorescent and LED’s can drastically reduce energy consumption. Also, the controls or dimming system can play a large role in the energy savings.
Having It All! - Our purchasing power and skill set allow us to deliver a high end lighting package, custom designed to your liking, and value engineered for cost savings. Who says you can’t have it all?
