In conversation with Construction & Civil Engineering magazine

Lighting design is essentially a fine balancing act between technology and creativity. And the job of the lighting designer is part psychologist, part sociologist, part engineer, part creative, part project manager and part quantity surveyor – to name a few.

More than ever, light is a hot topic: electricity doesn’t come cheap and light is the visual embodiment of wasted energy. Step forward LEDs – the bastion of low-energy lighting. But, they’re not without their own problems, and you get what you pay for.

Paul Nulty talks about the above, plus: Lighting as a Service (LaaS), how lighting designers can’t lose sight of things that matter the most (the people who actually use the space), design considerations and much more in the September edition of Construction & Civil Engineering magazine – have a read here.
