They understand the role of lighting in architectural and interior design and utilize their extensive experience and knowledge of lighting equipment and systems to enhance and strengthen design.
Last June, we shared a photo of the Rochester (NY) Airport Entry Canopy under construction and referred to the bit of lighting bling to be installed. Last night, the December weather in Rochester may have been icy to the fingers and toes but the eyes can now warm up to the canopy awash in color.
