Property managers, building engineers, facility managers, and representatives from organizations with real estate holdings or responsibility for the operations of real estate need to know how to best manage the lighting and how to evaluate lighting proposals for upgrades, and technicalities of integrating lighting systems with other building management systems. I will create and deliver training classes at any location. I can incorporate your existing material, or generate custom training visuals and handouts for you.
Lighting is complicated, just because a light source fits a socket doesn’t mean it’s the proper application of the technology. Misapplication of lighting technology is rampant, such as use of wrong lamp type which results in premature failure, or use of too many fixtures resulting in waste of funds and operating costs, use of the wrong fixtures resulting in glare or dim areas. When lighting controls are involved, the likelihood for costly errors only increases. Every lighting project design needs professional review prior to installation to ensure its success. I can spot errors and advise best practices prior to installation.
I do not sell products or represent manufacturers. My chief concern is for my clients’ lighting projects to be successful. I will assess your contractor proposals, and serve as an independent representative for owners, tenants, and property managers. I will thoroughly review lighting proposals you’ve received and help you determine what is best for your project.
Do you know if your facility is a candidate for a lighting upgrade? To determine this, you need to know exactly what is currently installed and how well or poorly all lighting is working. I perform comprehensive lighting audits, including taking light level readings. I will quantify whether spaces are under or over illuminated. Or, if you have a newly installed system, I will verify whether light levels designed are delivering as predicted.
Are you wondering how to even approach a potential lighting project? Do you want to know what options are available? I will do a walk-through with you, or a more complete assessment, and describe various options, and help narrow down your choices.
Using measurements from your actual space, and plugging in data from your contractor’s proposal, I will create photometric design models to determine precisely how the selected fixtures and placements will produce the desired result.
Unsure of how lighting fits in with your organization’s long-term facility strategy? I will work with your leadership team to develop plans for the application of lighting technologies that will function best with existing building management systems.
For building managers, property managers, building engineers, real estate representatives: Do you need a lighting upgrade, but are worried about costs? Let me present the rebates and incentives that are available to you.
For commercial real estate companies, building engineers, real estate holding organizations, and leaseholders, or tenants of buildings. On a contract or hourly basis, I will help you with:
- Proposal/design reviews – assessments (lighting projects)
- Site assessments and audits
- Project lighting strategies, design, specification
- Photometric modeling of lighting projects
- Utility Program engagement
- Rebate/Incentive management
