Beginning his career
in the late 1970's, Mr. Bloch achieved nationwide recognition for his ability to turn
Client's thoughts and needs into equipment specifications and award winning lighting
designs. From Network News shows currently on air across the United States to exhibits in
the nations leading museums, Mr. Bloch designs lighting for a wide variety of spaces that
include both performance and architectural systems.
"Lighting design is
more than simply making a space or performance arena look good", explains Mr. Bloch.
"Clients who are performing and providing technical assistance must be comfortable
performing and working with the equipment we specify". A common practice has become
to rely on well-meaning sales organizations to design systems for facilities. Vendors have
a built-in conflict of interest in selling only the equipment they represent. This can
result in conflict and inconsistencies between electrical drawings and vendor
requirements. It can also have adverse effects on system performance, size and can add
additional cost to a project.
Mr. Bloch has been working
alongside peers since 1992 and currently serves as National Chair for the Theatre,
Television and Film Lighting Committee for the Illumination Engineering Society of
North America (IESNA) and contributes to developing industry standards for improved
lighting throughout the industry.
Mr. Bloch is responsible
for introducing several products locally to the industry, which are now considered
industry standard. A 20-year working relationship with nearly all of the manufacturers who
supply equipment to the industry allows us to provide our clients with first hand
information and the benefit of working with most of what we specify.
Bloch Design serves our
Clients in several ways. Because we work only on behalf of our Client, we are able to make
suggestions during the planning, needs analysis, design, documentation, construction, and
maintenance phases of a project. This increased communication protects our Client's
interest. We are able to contribute to a project from the early phase through the first
air date or performance and building openings by providing quality lighting direction.
We invite you to review
