Lightswitch Expansion Addresses Environmental and Budget Challenges for Architects, Owners and Developers

Tower Lakes , IL (January 12, 2009) — Lightswitch, a premier provider of lighting design services, has expanded focus on architectural lighting design with the addition of Lightswitch Architectural. Economic challenges have highlighted the need for architects, owners and developers to use lighting designers, whose services bridge the gap between vision and installation, eliminating costly mistakes in placement, selection, and efficiency.

“It just makes sense for us,” comments Norm Schwab, Lightswitch Principal. “While we are known for our lighting and media design services for exhibits, entertainment and events, we have seen increased interest in our architectural services. By establishing a new division, we can address the growing demand in the public and private sectors for environmentally responsible design.”

Differentiated in the marketplace by early adoption of the LEED program and for managing projects within budget, Lightswitch continues to raise the bar of best practices by blending traditional techniques with the latest in technology. All five Lightswitch offices – Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando and San Francisco – will support this expanded focus. “Our clients still have access to the full breadth of experience through the company,” adds Principal, Howard Werner, “but with team members totally focused on architectural projects.”
