Orchestrating the details of a lighting project is no cake walk. There are a lot of moving parts. Details get lost and muddled in communication all the time. Things fall behind schedule. And sometimes perfect storms form, resulting in a disastrous outcome.
More than 30 years of experience in this industry has taught us how common lighting mistakes can be, but we're thankful that the blunders below weren't our handiwork.
Quick note: If any of the projects-gone-wrong below belongs to you, please contact us. We can help.
1. Integrated reinforcement
Does your parking structure need some extra support? Consider a solution like the one above and kill two birds with one stone.
2. Light that light
Did you just invest in some slick flood lighting? You
3. Pole this way
Don't just spotlight your parking lot lighting. That's selling
4. Shingle show
Just finish a roofing project? Make sure the drones and sparrows and jet passengers can get a good look at it by following this project's lead.
5. Bake like a leaf
If you're growing a cute baby tree on your premises, here's an option: get a nice little 250 W landscape light and aim it at the tree. It'll be towering over your building in no time. Who said outdoor grow lamps were a bad idea? (As a precaution, you may want to get a fire alarm installed nearby.)
We certainly aren't immune to an occasional lighting gaffe, but we are committed to a standard of excellence that delivers head-turning results (the good kind).
