Lauri Tredinnick

Pivotal Lighting Design Studio Leader

Widely recognized throughout the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) community for her expansive industry knowledge, proven thought leadership, and innovative design contributions, Lauri leads AEI’s in-house architectural studio, Pivotal Lighting Design. She collaborates with diverse design teams and AEC stakeholders on a broad range of public and private project engagements — across the healthcare, higher education, science and technology, and commercial office markets — guiding the concept development process to create architecturally integrated, sustainable building environments that illuminate the human experience.

With a background in interior design, Lauri is particularly passionate about the scientific connections between light and health and exploring the impacts of human-centric design on vital physiological functions. She has been published in LEUKOS, the official journal of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), for her collaborative research with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on tunable lighting systems in neonatal healthcare environments.

In addition to certifications from the National Council of Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED AP credentialing program, Lauri is a professional member of the International Associations of Lighting Designers (IALD) and an active IES contributor. Several of her projects have been honored with IES Illumination Awards, including Cincinnati Children’s Critical Care Building, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System’s Venice Hospital, and Promega Corporation’s Kornberg Center.
