Lighting consumes 30% to 50% of the energy used in most commercial and industrial buildings. In fact, buildings account for over 70% of all electricity consumption. The lighting systems in most US commercial buildings are over 20 years old. A custom lighting upgrade enables facilities managers to significantly reduce operating costs and move to a greener carbon footprint.
OUR LIGHTING CAPABILITIES
Every year, our lighting experts implement many projects ranging from small implementations to major upgrades. We handle the entire project, including design, product selection from leading manufacturers, utility rebate documentation, and turnkey implementation.
We are experts in the special lighting needs of specific applications from hospital operating rooms to modern workspaces. Our designers can work directly with engineers and formulate quotes from takeoffs.
We specify the best fixtures, lamps, and controls to maximize energy efficiency, qualify for the highest rebates, and deliver the right lighting quality. Our solutions meet environmental standards and are easy to maintain.
Lighting upgrades follow a proven five step process that fulfills your needs and delivers the expected results.
Step 1: Needs Assessment
We work to fully understand your needs before the project commences. We make sure that every possible benefit is explored and included in the project plan.
Step 2: Facility Audit
Our experts visit the site and gather key information about the current lighting system and upgrade expectations.
Step 3: Solution Design
We prepare one or more design alternatives that meet your project requirements. We fully explain all design considerations that impact the project’s results.
Step 4: Energy Rebates
Where rebate programs are available, we create all relevant documentation for submission to the utility company. We are experts in maximizing rebates through proper design and fixture selection.
Step 5: Turnkey Implementation
We install the selected system. We work directly with our customers and do not farm out this work to third parties. Implementation can include recycling services that disposes of old lighting equipment in compliance with government regulations.
After implementation, our team monitors the new system to ensure that the expected benefits are being realized.
