Before and After - McVinney Auditorium

We recently got the opportunity to go inside McVinney Auditorium to take photos of the finished project and we were amazed by the before and after photos from the renovation (by Torrado Architects) and the lighting re-design. Take a look!

The Before: Recessed tungsten halogen down lights

The After: Low wattage linear LED cove lighting supplemented with minimal LED down lights

Have you thought about your lighting lately??

With the nice weather arriving, many people turn their attention to spring cleaning... 

As you give your house or business the once over, don't forget to think about your light bulbs! Many energy providers give rebates and incentives to their customers who operate efficiently to save energy. 

ALD can help you, your business, or your next design project qualify for those incentives! Contact us for more information at info@ald.lighting!!
