HOW WE HELP ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS

We partner with design firms during the preliminary phase to ensure “as-specified” lighting and controls meet your customer's budget and schedule with multi-vendor costs locked in at bid time.

The MLS Way provides 100% of the transparency needed to protect your lighting packages and, as the designated distributor, we will build a long-lasting relationship based on trust and a good line of communication.

HOW WE HELP

Together with the Design Team, MLS will simplify the process of acquiring “as-specified” architectural, custom, and decorative lighting and control packages that meet your design vision and the owner’s budget objectives during the schematic design phase. We will then lock in the complete BOM before bid, delivering within budget and on time without costly redesign or loss of the design intent through the VE process.

Testimonials

Chelsea Kobza, Architect, Gensler

Because the Monterey team was involved early on in the project, they were able to seek out a solution to serve the design intent. They saved me a lot of time and headache on a project where I already had a lot on my plate.

Steve Roberts, Good & Roberts

Monterey Lighting Solutions did an excellent job in supporting all our lighting needs for the Abbott Labs project. They were proactive from the start, contributing alternative products, cost-effective (we had significant cost savings), and most importantly flexible with last-minute changes. The Monterey Lighting Solutions team attended project meetings and was always available to help. While working together, deliveries were accurate and on time, changes did not become problems, and communications were timely. Monterey Lighting Solutions really helped make lighting on this project worry-free.
