Episode 7 - Matt Jacks | Lutron | Residential & Commercial Lighting Solutions
Matt Jacks sees major shifts underway in how commercial offices are designed in the post-COVID era. Open, flexible spaces that can be readily reconfigured for different uses are becoming essential for driving more value from the office. Workspaces need to be active environments that facilitate client acquisition, employee engagement, and revenue generation. For Lutron, a leader in lighting controls, this means solutions that allow seamless adjustments of light, shades, and AV for optimal meeting experiences. Thoughtful design that accounts for the ergonomics and psychology of how people interact with devices is critical. On high-profile fit-out projects, Matt cites the intense coordination and long hours required in the final stretch before completion as a major challenge. Having an engaged client who embraces creativity rather than settling for a cookie-cutter approach is key to achieving truly outstanding outcomes. Ultimately, Matt argues commercial fit-outs must deliver compelling experiences that serve the building's entire 10-year-plus lifecycle, not just focus on opening day. An integral role for companies like Lutron is making workplaces more sustainable and people-friendly. To contact Matt Jacks see his LinkedIn and company details below.
