Revolutionizing the Lighting Industry to Re-Focus our Passion

May, 2022

Changing the way we work is just one of the many things we’ve learned to adapt to in the past few years. We’ve transformed our physical work environments and created flexible yet effective opportunities for our team, and firm, to continue making forward strides. 

Remaining agile in the market, constantly innovating, and improving our practices has given us the tools to advance our business in a challenging time for many. One of these tools is a cloud-based digital platform that is revolutionizing the lighting industry.   

Mulvey & Banani has always been a leader in the lighting industry and was asked to contribute as a consultant to assist in developing this new tool called Sourcery. Our involvement has enabled us to extend our expertise in consulting to improve industry standards through software design.  

Having first-hand experience using a resource that was created for our industry, by our industry, has improved our service tremendously by enhancing our digital communication practices with clients, peers, suppliers and internal team members, ultimately reinstating our passion for design and reminding us why we do what we do. 

How we deliver our service is a priority at the core of our company’s strengths, but why we provide the service is to ultimately design spaces that engage people, improve their wellbeing, captivate their senses, inspire their intellect, and create comfort and community. 

In a time when we were all socially distanced, we looked inwards to the Lighting Industry and found a way to connect and inspire us all. We began by finding a smarter way to improve the chain of communication between client, designer, and supplier that would enhance transparency, increase efficiency, and build valuable connections to allow more time to design. 

“As designers we need to have the right products at our fingertips to continually push to exceed and maintain design excellence. If our client wants an engaging, healthy, comfortable space lit with a lighting package composed of Sustainably Manufactured, local Canadian made products (where possible) with a prescribed supply cost average per square foot, and power density target to meet sustainability goals, we are compiling the data and intellectual property to accomplish this as we move from project to project in a simple managed process.” – Paul Boken, Vice President, Mulvey & Banani Lighting
