GMR has a proven Lighting Design Process engineered to address site-specific and industry-specific lighting challenges.
Our process produces effective solutions for customer safety, legal compliance, energy savings, reduced maintenance, illumination requirements, and sustainability. Effective design, completed by experts using expert methods, ensures a smooth design-to-construction process.
In some settings, lighting design requires the aesthetics of an art form. At its core, however, lighting is a science. GMR leads the way in leveraging the value of both the science and the art that a solution requires. As lighting technology continues to evolve, GMR is sought out by many organizations to understand and be able to communicate changes as they occur. GMR anticipates and understands the impact of changes in lighting technology, and is strategically engaged by Academic Institutions, Industry Best Practice Organizations, Regulatory Entities, and Global Facility Partners on a national scale. Our extensive field experience has made GMR a trusted resource for providing critical feedback to major lighting fixture manufacturers as they validate and improve their products for real world applications.
What differentiates GMR in the industry is the enormous amount of data we have gathered and the knowledge we have gained from literally millions of light readings taken in thousands of environments. This has been key in helping our clients achieve their lighting compliance objectives and design photometric goals. GMR’s lighting design services ensure consistency throughout the organization for each of our client’s facilities. Our design solutions meet or exceed lighting compliance requirements 96% of the time, on the first field verification. The result is cost savings, time savings, reduced frustration, and most importantly, a successfully completed project.
GMR understands “Compliance” at a gut level. We have been compliance professionals since our inception in 1991. Lighting compliance can be confusing. Our seasoned professionals understand the language of compliance and are superbly equipped to avoid problems by expertly relating our client’s needs to applicable state, local and federal requirements. Our Subject Matter Experts include Attorneys, Engineers, Private Security Management, Law Enforcement and Public Safety Professionals. Early lighting compliance standards achieved minimal safety levels and were poorly regulated. Today, industry regulatory requirements include statutes, standards, and guidelines across a multitude of environments. Lighting solutions must be thoughtfully designed to comply with all regulatory requirements and achieve safety standards that are field validated and approved. GMR is committed to delivering practical lighting solutions that minimize risk and assure compliance.

“GMR creates real-world lighting solutions by bridging the gap between traditional recommendations and the over reliance of software photometrics.”
“Going forward we will be reaching out to GMR to schedule up-front exterior lighting design/work, because the post-surveys fail when other firms have created the designs. We really do need GMR on the projects from the start to eliminate issues on the backend once the project is complete. This will shorten the completion time of projects and costs associated with change orders and additional time.”
