Lighting Design for Buildings

Reliable, beautiful, and functional lighting is critical for every building, where it's a commercial, industrial, or residential building. Lighting design focuses on determining the right type of lighting to use in each space. For example, lighting for a restaurant dining room would be designed to be welcoming, comfortable and not too bright. Lighting design for a warehouse, on the other hand, might focus on energy-efficiency. Our electrical engineering consultants will design lighting that specifically fits the needs of your space.

Lighting Design Considerations

Whether your project is a new building, a renovation, or a conversion, get in touch with our electrical engineers to discuss lighting design considerations and how to customize it for your project:

  1. Function. Lighting design is determined by how you'll be using your space. We have experience with a wide range of projects, and are familiar with the best practices used in various industries.
  2. Energy Efficiency. Reducing electricity use doesn't only mean turning off the lights. LED and lighting controls make compliance to recently accepted ASHRAE standards possible. Efficiency can be particularly important on projects like industrial warehouses, where energy costs can quickly add up.
  3. Aesthetics. Lighting creates mood and atmosphere. The right type of lighting affects the occupant's experience. Think of how the lighting in a dining room can feel warm and inviting, while lighting in an office needs to be bright enough for workers to be productive, but not so harsh that eyes grow easily tired.

Every space is different. Lighting is customized for every project's functional needs, aesthetic ideas, and budget.

Exterior Building Lighting

Proper lighting design of doorways and the exteriors of buildings, including pedestrian walkways, are integral for visibility, safety, and security.

Street Lighting and Parking Lot Lighting

Good lighting prevents accidents. As members of both the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), Paralynx Engineering follows North American standards to design street and parking lot lighting that helps to keep both pedestrians and vehicles safe.

Lighting Controls and LED Lighting

Too much technology can cause unnecessary complexity. We'll work with you and your budget to integrate only the technology that can improve function or save on long-term business costs.

Lighting Design For Every Space

Every building, whether it's a new building or a tenant improvement (TI development), will require some form of lighting design. Every interior and exterior space should have functional lighting that serves the needs of its users.
