MCE / LIGHTSPACES has been a member of the US Green Building Council (USGBC) since its inception.  We currently have one LEED Accredited LIGHTING Professional on staff, nearly FIFTY LEED ACCREDITED ENGINEERS, and a number of LEED Certified projects in design or recently completed.

SINCE Lighting can represent approximately one-third of a building’s energy costs, LIGHTSPACES combines state-of-the-art equipment, such as photocells and energy-efficient lamps, with strategic design techniques to create energy-saving lighting systems.

LIGHTSPACES has also been active in the Xcel Energy Design Assistance Program. Xcel Energy created this program to provide building owners with financial assistance to offset the additional cost of sustainable designs and to better inform building owners of the financial rewards of energy efficiency.

The results for our clients have included increased energy rebates from utility companies, long term energy savings, reduced maintenance costs, and the improved property values associated with better, more efficient buildings.
