Elegance meets efficiency underground.

The Courts at Preston Oaks

What We Did

  • Created a safe, welcoming area with diminished shadows and higher visibility for visitors
  • Upgraded lighting with 1-for-1 replacement of 140 existing luminaires with surface-mounted PDL3s
  • Increased efficiency and lowered operating costs with an estimated energy savings of 75%

The ROI, a savings of $30,000, allowed the project to pay for itself in only 1.74 years.

Task

The Courts at Preston Oaks luxury apartment homes needed a serious upgrade to their multi-level parking garage. The lights used in the structure were failing, leaving residents in the dark, and needed to be replaced quickly and efficiently with a bright, energy-efficient solution that would run continuously (24/7).

Solution

140 existing luminaires were replaced with surface-mounted PDL3s. The PDL3 LED lighting system, with its revolutionary design, optimized radiation pattern, easy installation, and slim profile, combined with dimming and occupancy sensor options, gives you the power to take control of your energy savings and adjust light output to the lowest required level onsite.

Results

What was once underground, certainly came to the surface, as this 1-for-1 replacement upgrade not only resulted in a beautiful, inviting, evenly lit parking structure, but the ROI, with a savings of $30,000, allowed the project to pay for itself in only 1.74 years. Combine that with an estimated energy savings of 75%, lower maintenance and operating costs, and you've got a lighting solution that's underground but never underlit.
