Benya Lighting Design provides complete lighting design and consulting services, including:

Conceptual Design
Schematic design of lighting and daylighting systems, including design charrettes, renderings, computer modeling, preliminary plans and specifications, and cost estimating.
Design Development
Design development and completion including detailed plans and specifications, controls design and engineering, cost estimating and management, and energy code/LEED calculations.
Working Drawings
For small commercial projects, we can provide working drawings and specifications including engineer's stamp and sealed energy forms. For larger projects, we work with electrical engineers and audio video consultants to complete the project's plans and specifications and make sure everything is correct
Construction Administration
We follow through on projects by providing construction administration, including shop drawings review, job site visits, response to RFI's and Change Order requests, and other duties needed for construction completion.
Focusing and Commissioning
Modern lighting systems require careful adjustments, aiming and lamping to achieve optimum performance, especially in stores, hotels, and other facilities with attractive or artistic lighting. We adjust lights, set dimming systems, and punchlist the installation to ensure a complete and attractive project. In commercial projects, we commission lighting controls systems such as daylighting controls to make sure the design achieves optimal energy efficiency.

Our clients often ask us to provide unique design services, including those having demanding technical requirements. We offer the following services regularly - call us about any other demanding requirements.
