Project Challenges:

Working with a design created by others, our team needed to bring the specified design to life on-site. The site presented numerous variables and, due to its unique layout, precise planning was crucial. The building’s fabrication needed to be evaluated for potential alterations to accommodate the new lights.

Project Planning and Execution:

Despite the challenges, the project proceeded smoothly with the site’s temporary closure providing an opportunity to carry out the upgrade efficiently.

With a detailed plan in hand, our team executed the replacement of Emergency Lighting, addressed faulty recessed lighting, and replaced various fixtures, including the main office lights and front external light.

Versatile Lighting Scenes:

Through in-depth conversations with individuals on-site, we strategically utilized the existing versatile lighting scenes. This ensured that the lighting not only met practical needs but also enhanced the usability of the spaces for different events and occasions.
