Period
 
Lighting the Period new construction or restoration if not planned early will easily result in deep void areas and gaps even with the best intentions for lighting coverage.

If the intent is to accurately live in the past, these voids as mentioned above may be tolerated, though with a price.
 
The nominal cost in pre-planning results in huge gains when it comes to energy, as in many cases after the fact…greater numbers of portable lighting units are required using increased energy. 
 
MC Felk Lighting & Design Group provides extremely important services to eliminate these issues, typically saving not only the time finding period specialty lighting but combines this with huge energy savings!
