LIGHTING DESIGN CONSULTANTS:

Over the course of hundreds of engagements, The Lighting Practice has refined its expertise in several key service areas. Our clients rely on TLP to present smart analyses, deliver insightful recommendations, and create and implement distinctive and cost-effective lighting designs. The following represents some of the more highly sought services we provide. We tailor these services to meet the specific needs of each of our clients.

FULL-SERVICE LIGHTING DESIGN:
Our normal scope of services starts with a conceptual or schematic design, and continues through the design development, construction documentation, and construction administration phases.

Before beginning our design, we work with clients to understand their project goals, budget, and schedule constraints. Our intent is to develop lighting strategies that directly respond to these requirements. Through our involvement in all project phases, we monitor the design process and modify the lighting design, details, and specification to address changes in the architecture or field conditions. We participate in construction phase services such as shop drawing review and supervise the aiming of adjustable lights and the programming of sophisticated lighting control systems. This full scope of services ensures that the designed lighting intent is achieved in the final installation.

LIGHTING MASTER PLANS:
A lighting master plan establishes the standards and performance criteria for future development, organizes and prioritizes options for future funding, and defines a broad conceptual vision.

TLP performs on-site surveys, measures existing light levels, and analyzes the overall environment to develop a comprehensive plan for lighting. We diagnose problems and identify opportunities to improve the appearance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of the facility’s lighting systems. Our intent is to create a roadmap that provides for cohesive and consistent lighting treatments as the facility expands and develops.

DAYLIGHTING DESIGN AND ANALYSIS:
Daylight in interior environments benefits the building owner and the end users. It provides a vital connection to the outdoors and a source of free light. However, if not carefully considered, it can also bring disabling glare and create excessive cooling load for the building through unwanted solar-heat gain. TLP uses computer modeling to analyze opportunities for daylighting. These models enable us to visualize and quantify the effects of daylight. Our goal is to provide spaces where the balance of daylight and electric light is appropriate and comfortable for people using the space.
