Applications of Lighting Design

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 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.

How Lighting Design Saves Money

A good design blends high-efficiency, long-lasting bulbs and fixtures (often LEDs ); optimized layouts and light levels; and advanced lighting controls. These controls save energy by turning off lights when not needed (via time scheduling or daylight sensors), or when a space is empty (via occupancy sensors). Updating older bulbs and fixtures alone will reduce energy use, but your savings can increase by 40% when those updates are part of a comprehensive lighting design project.

  • Optimize your space for its current use (e.g., warehouse converted to offices)
  • Increase savings by 40% over just one-to-one replacement of bulbs and fixtures
  • Add resale value to your business, boost appeal for prospective tenants
