THE CBB TEAM INCLUDES BOTH LEED ACCREDITED PROFESSIONALS AND NUMEROUS DESIGNERS WITH ADVANCED DAYLIGHTING CAPABILITIES.
CBB’s lighting designers champion a core philosophy that the best design solutions are achieved through teamwork and communication. The team uses mock-ups, renderings, and three-dimensional computer visualizations to illustrate lighting design concepts for architects and clients. A comprehensive suite of IT skills including AutoCAD, Revit, AGI32 and Adobe Creative Suite is used to represent spaces and lighting effects, photometric calculations, and energy management analysis.
CBB’s core philosophy summarizes our design work. Our credo is that the best lighting designs achieve a perfect balance: fulfilling the owner’s aesthetic desires, achieving functional and budgetary requirements, enhancing the architect’s design, incorporating up-to-date technologies, and providing an unparalleled user experience – all in one optimal solution.
