Miller Zell's engineers develop lighting fixtures and concepts for scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Its lighting design capabilities include: industrial design & engineering; form study mock-ups; physical prototyping; 3D CAD models for prototype or rollout scale; assessment of appropriate materials; and, manufacturing support.
Miller Zell designers consider themselves a very left-brained group that lives on precision, detail and dedication to continuous concept improvement. Many of its lighting designers are LEED accredited, and the company itself is an organizational member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
In addition to the attention they give to materials, fixture assembly methods, end-user ergonomics and environmental impact, Miller Zell designers and engineers perform whole cost analysis and holistic value engineering. Their approach to lighting design considers the implications of freight, packing and ease of installation, as well as on maintenance and lifecycle.
