The Lighting Control Innovation Award was created in 2011 as part of the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Illumination Awards program, which recognizes professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design. LCA is proud to sponsor the Lighting Control Innovation Award, which recognizes projects that exemplify the effective use of lighting controls in nonresidential applications.
The Illuminating Engineering Society and the Lighting Controls Association have announced the Award of Merit winners of the 2012 Lighting Control Innovation Award, selected via an online judging process. Qualifying projects went on to be considered for a higher award during judging at LIGHTFAIR 2012 in Las Vegas, and will be announced in the November issue of LD+A.
