Charles Loch Memorial Award 2017 Winner
Lighting Analysts has announced the winner of the 2017 Charles Loch Memorial Award. This is an award for a passionate lighting professional in a recently established or otherwise deserving design practice or lighting-centric business. The award consists of a complimentary AGi32 software license and one year of SupportPlus, Lighting Analysts’ software support and maintenance plan.
Ms. Kiersten Hoiland and Hoiland Studios
“I find it so rewarding when my clients are equally excited about the effects of lighting in their spaces as I am.”
Kiersten fits perfectly into the spirit of the Loch award as she recently left an award winning lighting design firm to strike out on her own with the creation of Hoiland Studios. Kiersten won our staff over with a passionate essay describing her adventures in lighting design and love of client satisfaction. Kiersten is familiar with AGi32 through her former firm and we hope the software continues to pay her dividends in client understanding of the lighted environment:
“Often times my clients cannot visualize the lighting in their space by looking solely at the layout on our lighting plan. When I can present a pseudocolor rendering of their space with the help of an AGi32 model, it gives them peace of mind to see exactly what will be illuminated. It’s amazing.”
We are extremely pleased to provide Kiersten with the award for 2017!
