Illuminations Lighting and Design develops commercial lighting projects that systematically and completely address every aspect of task and decorative lighting. As a multi-service vendor specializing in 5 major disciplines, we offer businesses the unique and very cost-effective convenience of using our firm as a single-source vendor for their entire electrical and lighting design requirements. Our cross training in architecture, interior design, and landscaping further enable us to develop systems that layer lighting in a fashion that customizes every commercial lighting project to form, function, and utility. Most importantly, we develop some of the most cost-effective commercial lighting projects found anywhere as vendor of the world’s most sophisticated energy-saving and low-voltage lighting equipment that reduces overhead without sacrificing visibility, safety, or aesthetics.
The actual lighting systems we install in each commercial lighting project fall into two major categories: indoor and outdoor commercial lighting. Each category requires us to give equal focus to both practicality and aesthetics. Safety, functionality, affordability, and visual appeal constitute major considerations in our selection of equipment and the physical layout of each commercial lighting project. Both outdoor and indoor lighting utilize sophisticated combinations of lighting effects which we call “layered lighting,” enabling us to combine elements of task and function with decorative highlights and special effects. Our electrical design services often form the backbone for both.
As a fully licensed and certified electrical contractor, we work with general contractors to develop internal and external wiring systems during the initial planning phases of construction. When we work on a project for commercial lighting from the ground up, it enables us to use the latest technology and most advanced low-voltage and energy saving wiring methods to pass immediate savings back to the customer the moment the doors open and business begins. We assist in the building of everything from single-site small company offices to hotels, condominiums, restaurants, and major multi-site branch offices for banks, law firms, and national entities. Our commercial lighting projects offer the assurance that all electrical design work meets with full compliance of national, state, and municipal electrical codes. For clients with existing buildings or older facilities, we provide electrical remodeling and emergency power backups to add additional safety, reliability, and cost-effectiveness to our commercial lighting projects.
Our indoor lighting team relies partly on client consultation and partly on cross training with partner interior design firms to achieve an equal balance of utility and superior decorative appeal. Our professionals look closely at every room within a building and interview staff to determine what types of task lighting a particular room requires supporting activities. The interior illumination in each commercial lighting project must be glare free to protect the eyes and bright enough to provide comfortable and safe work areas. We compliment task lighting in every room and office with a number of decorative effects created by layers of indirect and direct lighting and adjustable lights installed on dimmer controls. For high-end executive offices and boardroom commercial lighting projects, we layer brighter task lighting over work areas with softer decorative light, dimmable light, and fine art and display lighting.
We complete our commercial lighting project with architectural, landscape, and commercial exterior lighting of the building and surrounding property. We transform the building itself into a preeminent, illuminated edifice and blend the decorative highlights of key features into a secondary layer of exterior security and safety lighting. This eliminates the stark glare often seen in cheaper, generic outdoor lighting designs that overuse floodlights and create spots of blindingly intense light that cast long shadows on the ground. By blending four layers of landscape lighting into a unified field of illumination linked to architectural and exterior lights, we unify natural terrain with human engineering with a synthesis of activity, clear visibility, and decorative highlights.
