Lilker Lighting Group (LLG) provides lighting design services from concept through completion for architects, building owners and institutions. We reinforce the architect’s design vision while meeting project energy, budget and spatial constraints. Our design staff has national and international experience in commercial, residential, academic, retail, religious, museum, and exterior lighting projects.
We believe good lighting serves architecture by providing function, order, and spectacle. In addition to fostering comfortable and productive environments, exceptional lighting design organizes flow and circulation, reinforcing geometric relationships. And when called upon, bold and dramatic accent lighting takes center stage as a feature element, amplifying the architect’s concept. Balancing function, order and spectacle, LLG illuminates space as it was meant to be experienced.

The Buzz on Using UV for Disinfection
Beyond the Hype: The Buzz on Using UV for Disinfection. By David Cyr, LC, MIES, IALD, Lilker Lighting Group Director. Using ultraviolet (UV) for disinfection, or “UV germicidal irradiation” (UVGI) is older than you may think. A patent for a germicidal low-pressure mercury source was issued in 1886, products were used for water purification as early as 1904, and UV sources have been used for decades within mechanical air-handlers and ducts to disinfect cooling coils, drain pans, and air. Recently, the germicidal properties of UV have been a hot topic for discussion.
