History

Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Light Theory Studios is a full-service architectural lighting firm, specializing in hospitality, restaurants, gaming, commercial and retail space designs. LTS is a division of FEA Consulting Engineers which is one of the top engineering firms in the nation. As a division of FEA, there is a seamless coordination between MEP engineers and the lighting designs. This results in less conflicts in the design process which, in turn, avoids changes in the design documents. Our team, which includes the owners Robert Finnegan, and Boyd Erickson, is led by Brad Nelson, who has extensive experience in the lighting design profession. LTS designers work hand in hand with architects and interior designers because we speak the same language. We are able to translate that language into a seamless coordination between the design team and engineers. It is this process that has given Light Theory an excellent reputation, both within the design industry and with owners and operators.
