On May 31, the Illuminating Engineering Society of British Columbia (IESBC) awarded its 2018 ‘Vision Awards’ recipients, which honours outstanding BC lighting designers for their projects. Submissions for the ‘Vision Awards’ open yearly in January.
“The lighting projects received this year address several challenges with the use of integrated control systems to reduce energy costs, harvest daylight, and reduce light pollution, and is just the beginning of what is to come in the lighting industry,” says Robyn York, IESBC’s chair member and lighting specialist at Inform Contract. “It’s exciting to see what possibilities are evolving in the lighting industry and knowing our local professionals are well versed in the advancements of technology.”
This year’s Award of Merit recipients include Emily Carr University of Arts and Design (WSP Lighting Studio), Metrotown Parkade Lighting Upgrade (Smith+Andersen), and Vancouver International Airport (WSP Lighting Studio). The two Awards of Excellence were presented to UBC Museum of Anthropology (AES Engineering) and Emily Carr University of Arts and Design (WSP Lighting Studio).
Submissions were judged based on how well the lighting design met the program criteria and it is not a competition. IESBC’s Vision Awards’ is stage one leading up to IES’s national ‘Illumination Awards’, which will be presented on August 9 at the IES Conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
Bringing together the best of BC’s lighting professionals, IESBC offers monthly seminars to educate trade and residential designers or anyone interested in learning more about the lighting industry. For more information on IESBC, seminars and membership, visit www.iesbc.org
