Lighting Design

Robertson Cafe University of Akron

The famous Hawthorn Studies of the early 1900s attempted to link increased employee productivity with improved lighting conditions. The study’s conclusions were instrumental in understanding the association between a person’s mood and good lighting design.


A good lighting design enhances the aesthetic of the space and becomes an extension of the architecture. CJL Engineering focuses on creating a balance between function and artistry, while maintaining an energy efficient and cost effective design.
