LIGHTING STUDIO AlfaTech’s Lighting Studio provides aesthetically pleasing and sustainable design solutions for some of the world’s most complex and high-performing buildings. AlfaTech Lighting Studio brings a creative spirit to each project. We work closely with clients to gain an understanding of project requirements and goals. The Lighting Studio works with the design team to chart the best course based on our client’s objectives, the architect’s design, building systems, facility operational strategies, sustainability goals, and energy efficiency. Every building is unique, each having its own aesthetic and operational preferences. Lighting Studio considers preferences with great attention and detail. We are well-versed in coordinating with a range of consultants handling mechanical, electrical, plumbing, acoustical, structural, landscape, civil, security, and signage. The Lighting Studio possesses a wide range of project experience, offering a range of design and analytical services supporting a project from beginning to post-occupancy. Services include schematic daylighting design studies, facility orientation, and daylighting modeling to yield favorable LEED accreditation outcomes. AlfaTech Lighting Studio delivers solutions to address a range of goals, reducing energy consumption by harvesting daylight. Our Lighting Studio aims to delight occupants by bringing the daylight into a space by evenly distributing light while mitigating glare by considering how the eye adapts. We believe design should seamlessly transition from daylight to electric lighting, dynamically considering the sun’s rotation as it engages with a space. Our approach ensures a stimulating space that plays with light and shadow. Additionally, outdoor views have positive effects. Lighting Studio values and brings a biophilic design connecting occupants with nature. DESIGN THAT PLAYS WITH DAYLIGHT AND CONNECTS WITH NATURE


AlfaTech Lighting Studio engages daylighting model software to provide visual representations of how daylight will impact a facility. These images allow more informed design decision-making. Our clients expect floor plan calculation points and renderings to gain a better sense of light distribution. Lighting Studio provides floor plans, 3D views, and sectional perspectives to gain an insight into how daylight affects the space.

SUSTAINABILITY STUDIO AlfaTech’s Sustainability Studio provides sustainable design solutions for prioritizing energy, water, and air quality. Our team brings deep MEP engineering expertise with digital skills. Our Sustainability Studio is a team of in-house experts whose purpose is to develop the most highly sustainable design strategies for each project. This multidisciplinary team assesses and designs projects with an integrated approach. Working with owners, architects, and other stakeholders, we examine every project with a comprehensive, systematic approach to map key programming targets. We establish project sustainability goals and collaboratively prioritize energy, water, and air quality requirements. We explore the latest system technologies and identify concepts most suitable to project applications. We perform life-cycle analysis, system simulations, and models that are utilized for validation. We review proposed system concepts with the project team to determine impacts and financial benefits in the earliest design stages.

AlfaTech goes beyond engineering – our suite of energy, water, and sustainability assessment services creates projects that benefit the triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit.


AlfaTech maintains a commitment to sustainable design on every project. At the onset of a new project, our Sustainability Studio tea works with the client and the architect to establish and benchmark the project’s sustainability goals. Once these goals are set, we explore the latest system technologies, identify project-specific strategies available, and determine the most suited concepts to the project application. We provide preliminary studies of these systems, further validating the application. Together with the rest of the project team, we look at each system concept to determine the project impacts and financial benefits in the early stages of design.


We follow a holistic approach to meet project expectations in all dimensions. Providing sustainable design is an achievement if it is also functional. Increasing efficiency is realistic when it is applicable. Meeting the project budget is possible when the design is constructible.

Lucas Museum of Narrative Arts

Los Angeles, CA


New Construction, Core and Shell 360,000 SF

The Lucas Museum was conceived with the bold ambition to challenge the way our societies appreciate art museums. Inspired by its resolute mission, the engineering design blasted off with the vision to deliver a lasting, centenarian building in harmony with its site. The carbon zero design harnessed heat and cooling from the soil beneath the museum with over 700 vertical bores. This constituted the deepearth, pulsating aorta of the geothermal field. A second element of nature was introduced by way of a thermally active water pond, which increased the site’s innate cooling capacity. These features were modulated by the high-efficiency, heat recovery central plant that provided all-electric, simultaneous heating and cooling (and no gas-fired boilers). Environmental quality for prime spaces – galleries, state of the art theaters, and lobbies – were controlled with underfloor air-distribution and radiant floors. Smart controls gently nudged temperature and ventilation parameters to adjust to visitors’ comfort. The superstructure lifted off with an exterior façade that self -shaded the thermal shell, effectively reducing cooling demand. Curved onyxglass organically traced the rooftop which formed the solar PV field. At 365 kW capacity, the renewable energy source reduced an estimated 10-15% of the electricity demand and swung the carbon footprint negative. Ahead of its time, the Lucas Museum will open the doors as an eco- friendly, ‘net zero energy’ - ready museum that gives back to the surrounding community.
