Proper lighting design for facilities begins with understanding these three principles:

Every task needs different lighting and we identify these needs during our assessment of each space. Lighting properly for the work being performed improves safety, comfort and productivity.

Lighting technologies are continually improving efficiency and rated life, and enhancing light quality for improved visual acuity. Our technicians are highly trained to choose the right products and will design an ideal solution that is truly customized for your space.

In locations where lighting power densities cannot be lowered, controls may be used to increase system efficiency. Controls range from turning off the lights when not in use to complex controlling systems. Before recommending controls, we take the time to fully understand the use of the space and habits of the users, then offer a solution that provides the best overall value.


Our Process

We conduct our lighting energy assessments in accordance to the Illuminating Engineering Society's Guidelines for Upgrading Lighting Systems in Commercial & Institutional Spaces.  The information we collect then becomes the basis for our in-depth requirements analysis and design development.

Building on the design fundamentals of Task, Technology and Controls, our team of experts takes your lighting upgrade from concept to final proposal.  Our manufacturer and technology neutral solutions are also designed to the specifications of the Illuminating Engineering Society's Lighting Handbook, 10th Edition, which meet or exceed EPACT 2005 and ASHRAE90.1, 2010 requirements.

Our professional installation staff performs the lighting upgrades in accordance with your operational needs and goals identified during our assessment.  EPL project managers, site supervisors and installation teams comply with applicable safety and labor regulations and codes.

Using light level and amperage meters, we collect measurement and verification readings to ensure the effectiveness of our design and confirm the savings guaranteed by our design.  Our measurements are performed in designated locations on the lighting design, by a Certified Master Electrician, in accordance with guidelines established by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP LE-A-02).
