5 Big Questions:  HLB Lighting Design at LightFair 2022

HLB Senior Principal & CEO, Carrie Hawley, shares insights into design, demand and supporting the industry.


Topics we explore:

  1. Why does HLB make such a big investment in sending so many people to LightFair?

  2. Human Centric Lighting.  WELL buildings.  Dynamic color changing technologies.  Advanced networked controls.  What initiatives/technologies seem to be more challenging for building owners to adopt?

  3. How is the pandemic hangover affecting new business opportunities in commercial office buildings and other project types?  

  4. Are HLB's design firm acquisitions more about the actual people in the acquired firm, their biz-dev connections or an accelerated entry into a new market?

  5. What are the most effective agents and manufacturers doing to get their new products/technologies introduced to your design teams without just offering a seemingly endless calendar of Zoom webinars?
