Commercial Lighting Consulting Services

When Integral Lightings met with Royal Building Products located in Langley BC they were looking for ways to reduce their operating costs.  The plant was lit with 400W metal halides and the offices with T12 fluorescents. Management wanted to maintain or increase the level and quality of light while maximizing energy savings.  LED, fluorescent T5 and electronic HID systems were compared.  A 200W LED system was selected and installed in the plant achieving close to 60% energy savings while improving the light level.  The exterior metal halide wall packs were upgraded to LED fixtures achieving upwards of 70% energy savings.  In the offices the T12 were replaced with LED fixtures and a motion sensor was added to the lunch room achieving over 74% energy savings.

“Chris worked closely with us throughout the project. He provided timely answers to our questions and Integral won the job because of his educational approach and his consideration of our needs throughout the selection process. Chris was head and shoulders above his competition. The project was well coordinated and timely. We would recommend working with Chris.”
