Light and Human Perception

The most fundamental aspect of designing with light, and lighting controls, is how we perceive the interaction of light and surface in the built environment. When intentionally designed, we can use these interactions to direct attention, create mood, regulate the awareness of brightness, and improve occupant satisfaction all while minimizing energy use.

Audit & Retrofit Techniques

The advent of LED lighting has caused a seismic shift in the lighting industry, creating a renewed interest in how to best upgrade the lighting in existing buildings. One of the best places to start is to do an inventory of what your current lighting system is and what its strengths and weaknesses are. This will enable you to identify where to put most of your efforts.
