“When working on a new build home or a major remodel, Lightworks has been our go-to team since we first opened our doors in 2007. The work they do is magic – literally. They keep on the forefront of the latest technologies, and their expertise makes the process of defining lighting, audio-visual and shading uncomplicated and seamless for our clients. Our projects are exponentially enhanced when Lightworks is involved at the beginning of the design process. And, not only are they great at what they do, they are a joy to work with. We couldn’t recommend them more highly for anyone wanting a truly custom home.”

“We are an established Interior Design firm in San Diego, CA and specialize in high end residential and hospitality projects. Lighting design is a big part of all our projects. Over the years we had worked with several local firms but hadn’t found one we wanted to have an ongoing relationship with. We were introduced to Lightworks by a fellow designer and after the completion of a very successful beach house project in Encinitas we have ONLY worked with Lightworks for all our projects. Todd is a pleasure to work with, as his insight and attention to the minutest of detail is unparalleled. When I work with Lightworks I truly feel they have the best interest of my clients at heart and they are a very valuable team player. From the initial meeting, to setting budgets, to lighting specifications and actual implementation, they offer the whole package. We have also worked with Lisa for automated window shades and have found great value in her expert knowledge. Whether the job is small or large she treats it with the same enthusiasm and excellent service.”

“We are a custom home builder and premier remodeling company that has been serving Southern California for over 30 years. We recently had the pleasure of adding Lightworks to our highly qualified team of tradesmen. Troy Dunnington, owner of this innovative electrical design build company, takes great pride in delivering to us, a quality product. His crew of experienced technicians are knowledgeable, accommodating, and possess a willingness to complete the required tasks in a timely manner. Thank you Lightworks, for your contribution with helping maintain Select Builders high construction standards.”

Mike Mastrobattista
Owner, Select Builders

“Lightworks has been an integral partner on numerous projects we have worked on together. Growing up an Electrical Contractors daughter, Lighting has always been a top priority for my projects. Todd Walling has been an attentive and creative consultant with his knowledge and lighting design expertise, as well as the Lightworks team of electricians and home integration specialists. It’s been a great convenience also that Lightworks has the capabilities to offer an entire package, including shade products and integration for overall smart home control. Troy, Todd, Lisa and the Lightworks group are extremely professional and responsive. I never have to worry about customer care and service when I refer Lightworks to my clients. I highly recommend Lightworks.”

Beverly Feldman
Owner, SPACE Urban Resource Center

“Dear Troy (Lightworks et al), I wanted to take a minute to sit back, take a breath, and thank you for all your recent efforts to help gain closure of the recent projects as well as the years of attention and detail on the projects that we have had the opportunity to work together on. We have completed some stunning high-quality homes with many complex systems and your entire team has collaborated very well with my team and the other subcontractors on the projects to get out clients moved in and settled. We have found your team respectful an attentive to our schedules and requests and accommodating in especially in these very busy times.”

David Steigerwald
COO, Steigerwald-Dougherty Inc., General Contractors

“Over the years Wardell Builders has worked on many projects with LightWorks. The ability to have Troy and Todd involved in the project early, working with the design team and fellow trade partners, has proven to be successful time and time again. The over arching complexity of a fully integrated home is in itself challenging. The ability to walk the client through LightWorks local showroom, addressing the many choices, options and decisions that have to be made, enables us to pull all the information together under one professional subcontractor, building client and design team trust. When the construction process begins, planning, organizing and prioritizing with a team of professionals in the field makes everyone’s job that much more efficient. LightWorks proposals and billing invoices provide the level of transparency required for a successful project with our custom home clients and their consultants. We look forward to continuing to improve our processes and building an even stronger relationship with LightWorks in the future.”

Barry Fennell
Director of Remodeling Services, Wardell Builders

Our search for just the right audio/video vendor for our new construction home lead us to LightWorks. Our contractor, Mueller Custom Homes, made three suggestions. We followed-up with in-office interviews, ultimately deciding on LightWorks due to their extensive experience, broad capabilities, friendly presentation and, of course, a reasonable price.

They installed all of our electrical systems, including security, audio/video and the latest Lutron lighting system. All requests, no matter how difficult, were cheerfully achieved. Our contractor frequently commented on how accommodating and efficient they were during the building process.

BIG PLUS . . . through the process we have become good friends. And they are always happy to address adjustments and refinements. No doubt, LightWorks will efficiently and cheerfully keep us current for many years to come.
