Lighting for Exterior, Public Realm & Landscape

The right outdoor architectural lighting can transform a space. It enables us to use public spaces at night and can turn a dark and dingy thoroughfare into a brightly lit hub of activity.

Lighting provides safe, appealing places to congregate. In busy cities, the need for open, public space continues beyond daylight hours. And outdoor architectural lighting makes these spaces functional at night, for everyone. But more than that, well-designed lighting schemes create safe, welcoming areas to pause, rest and congregate.

The environmental impact of buildings has become increasingly apparent. Many organizations recognize the value of green buildings and sustainability as part of their responsibility to more than just the bottom line. Green or sustainable practices within commercial buildings produce healthier and more resource-efficient models of operation and maintenance. 

Certainly, a building doesn’t have to be new to be efficient. The number of existing, in-service buildings dwarfs the number of new construction projects. Retrofits for existing buildings can therefore produce outsized environmental impact as compared to a focus solely on green design and construction practices.

Green building retrofits deliver proven results with minimal cost. While they may not deliver catchy headlines common amongst trophy construction projects, their pervasive impact across the building landscape has raised the profile of building sustainability in the consciousness of the general public. Green practices should represent more than an event; they should produce a discernible shift in day-to-day corporate responsibility.

Today’s leading building owners have actively engaged green building retrofits as the key to future models of sustainability. More than narrow vertical products, horizontal platform approaches have driven investment in bundles of technology that interoperate to deliver deeper efficiencies with a comprehensive approach. Read more here
