HVAC and lighting make up the majority of energy use within commercial buildings.


HVAC and lighting make up most of the energy used within commercial buildings. Most commercial buildings do not use advanced energy controls, and more than 90% still use fluorescent technology. There is a tremendous opportunity to lower operating costs by implementing energy-saving strategies and mitigate airborne viruses. For multi-tenant commercial spaces like call centers, data hubs, and office buildings, lighting is a major factor in operation and maintenance costs. 

The quality of light in reception areas, meeting and conference rooms, offices, hallways, outdoor areas, and facades is an important factor to those using the spaces day to day and affects how welcoming the space will be to visitors. Well-designed and executed upgrades focus on creating an environment that will increase productivity and job satisfaction for tenants’ employees while helping your tenants make a good impression on their visiting clients.

Upgrading lighting and leveraging the latest energy-efficient technologies will significantly reduce energy consumption while providing your tenants with customized spaces to meet their individual needs. You want your tenants and their visitors to be able to safely and effectively navigate the building. We emphasize safety, and quality design to bring you state-of-the-art technology that consistently performs at an optimal level.
