Two well-known lighting design firms, Randy Burkett Lighting Design and Envision Lighting Design, have merged to form Reed Burkett Lighting Design (RBLD), St. Louis, MO, according to a post on the company’s website (www.rbldi.com). Both Lisa Reed and Randy Burkett will lead RBLD as principals.
Randy Burkett Lighting Design was founded 34 years ago by Randy Burkett and has serviced a diverse clientele in more than 20 countries. Some of the firm’s biggest lighting projects include the St. Louis Arch, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C., Utah State Capitol and Illinois State Capitol Legislative Chambers. Established in 2011 by Lisa Reed, Envision Lighting Design’s roster of notable projects include the St. Louis Ballpark Village, the national headquarters for Edelman in Chicago and Drury Plaza Hotels in Nashville, TN.
“Our respective firms balance each other well, and the synergy created by this merger will take us far into the future,” said Reed in the online post. “Our clients will immediately benefit from the increased capacity and experience created by bringing these two teams under one roof.”
