Aside from the sheer aesthetics of building design, no other aspect of a construction project produces the same visual impact as its lighting design.

A smart, well executed lighting design provides optimal energy savings, tenant satisfaction and an increase in property value.

Our design process takes into consideration:

  • Type of activity for which lighting is to be provided
  • The amount of light required for these activities
  • The color of the light and its impact within the space
  • The distribution of light within the space
  • Energy efficiency and available incentives
  • All budgetary considerations
