Local Lighting Designer Featured in National Healthcare Magazine

Tom Kaczkowski, director of lighting design at HOK in St. Louis, figures prominently in a May 31 Healthcare Designfeature on lighting.

Kacskowki noted that lighting technology has reached a “tipping point” where “every lighting system” in healthcare can use LEDs. He noted that lighting manufacturers have embraced the technology for a wide variety of uses, and most of the LED systems they produce are dimmable out of the box, “permitting cost-effective daylight harvesting, load shedding, or simple preset high/medium/low lighting level settings.” 

However, he warned against “disposable” LED fixtures, which don’t allow for replacing just the LED, but require an electrician to replace the full fixture when the LED gives out.
