Foursome of architect, designer, integrator and lighting design/engineer are the four pillars of successful technology team.

The L.A. Rams may have had the “Fearsome Foursome” back in the 1960s, but today’s modern design team is a “Forceful Foursome” consisting of the architect, designer, integrator and lighting design/engineer.

“This is the modern design team,” says Glenn Merlin Johnson, noted lighting designer and president of Adaptive Design Group, a Park City, Utah-based lighting design and engineering firm. “Obviously, it starts with an architect and an interior designer but it’s critical to round out a cohesive team with the technical team. That starts with lighting design, which means having an electrical engineering specialty firm and then bringing in the integrator to not only handle the lighting control but the rest of the audio, video, surveillance and home network.”

As the lighting category becomes more prevalent among integrators, the ability to provide expertise in lighting design can be a major differentiator. Anybody can load up a ceiling with 400 recessed can lights and onsite arm waving, but the result will be a lack of artistry and professional coordination, and it does a disservice to the homeowner with improper illumination.

In this one-hour FREE CE Pro webinar, attendees will learn the ADAPTIVE Method® of lighting design from noted lighting designer and creator Glenn Merlin Johnson of Adaptive Design Group. Johnson will not only identify his trademarked eight distinct layers of lighting design, but also pinpoint the best way to locate illumination to highlight the architecture and art, as well as the interior and exterior views, and decorative elements of the home. He will also review the need for task and pathway lighting and the critical magic created with integrated lighting controls.

From this webcast, integrators will have a better understanding of lighting design, the thoughtful application of controls, and how it can catapult their lighting business to the next level.
