Who We Are and Aspire To Be


We OPTIMIZE the VALUE, PERFORMANCE, and EXPERIENCE of engineered building systems. We LISTEN to our clients, are APPROACHABLE and ACCESSIBLE, and COMMUNICATE frequently with HONESTY and INTEGRITY to deliver CLEAR, CONCISE, and CONSISTENT solutions ON-TIME on every project. 

About Us

We are Optimized Lighting Engineering and Design

OPTIMIZED: Make the best or most effective use of a situation, opportunity, or resource

Ultimately, we care, this isn't just a marketing tagline, it is obvious in everything we do (see 'Why We're Different' section). We are a small, and therefore, dynamic team of creative mechanical, electrical, and plumbing building systems solution providers. To maintain our vision and stay focused on our mission we will remain small. We are a registered Small Business Enterprise (SBE) with the City of Phoenix and Licensed Professionals in Arizona, California, and Colorado. Our founder, Brett Lorenzen PE, LEED AP BD&C has a rich history of creating engineered solutions on large scale healthcare, higher education, and municipal projects at SmithGroup and Henderson Engineers, Inc. However, no project is too small for you to receive personal and customized service.

Optimized Lighting Engineering and Design is different


Optimized LED was conceptualized as a resource where project success and user experience is paramount to everything we do. We emphasize time and effort on the important aesthetic value of the existing facility or architectural design. Lighting takes an elevated role in the design as it strongly influences the environment. We desire to blend form and function to enhance the interior aesthetics of the space.

We aren't afraid of the phone or face to face interaction. We are fully transparent on our progress, fees, and expectations. Don't be surprised to receive a progress set of drawings when you didn't ask for them; receive a a phone call asking for reflected ceiling plan coordination with lights and diffuses; or maybe, an email with three different lighting products with cost, quantity, and benefits to encourage the best choice for the project. At each moment and on every project, you will experience added value with Optimized LED as your engineering resource.

Chose Optimized Lighting Engineering and Design


We care about each and every project. 

"Pride is generated from project success, not awards, accolades, or profit, the experience of working with us speaks for itself. Rewards will come to those who serve"

With Optimized LED you work directly with the owner and engineer from proposal to certificate of occupancy. If you don't receive personalized results and timely communication from your current consulting engineer, consider a new partner that will transform the design process by adding to the user experience, increased reliability, and Christian values.


As RELIABLE as your waatch


We are transparent, we aren't afraid to provide information on our fees.  We have nearly zero overhead, are streamlined, and efficient resulting in low fees and assisting in winning projects. We consider construction cost and the user experience on every design.


Clear communication free from engineering jargon. We speak your design language, not our own. Clear engineered drawings with precise details.


In today's construction market we're all busy and must make the most of our time. We prefer to dive-in and generate solutions to problems rather than place blame or generate new issues. We write with bullet points, design with a checklist, and clarify with images.


Our philosophy is implemented on each and every project regardless of workload.  Late nights and early mornings are a regularity to maintain and deliver a quality engineered result.


Most engineers are introverts, we are extroverts that love solving problems.  We prefer a meeting over email, and lunch over a phone call.  We boost your image when representing you rather than deter owner interaction.


Always direct access to the engineer, no project manger, designer, or administrative assistant.  We embrace technology and are accessible before, after, and during business hours, we return phone calls within hours not days.
