“The superior light quality the upgrade has provided exceeded our expectations … To have students notice the quality of lights has been an amazing thing to me as an administrator. The installation was non-intrusive and the crew doing the work each night was polite, professional, and friendly – while getting the work done ahead of schedule.”

Eco Engineering in the Education Sector

Eco Engineering has a long history of successfully completing energy efficient lighting projects in the K-12 and higher-education marketplace as the lighting specialist for Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) on large “campus wide” energy savings performance contracts involving all aspects of energy usage.

The needs of the K-12 and higher-ed markets can be different, yet share similarities such as requiring proper light levels, seamless installation, and maximum energy savings. Exterior lighting provides additional energy savings and lower maintenance costs while making a positive impact on safety. Lighting controls can be deployed to ensure the proper amount of light is available depending on the occupancy, available natural light, and classroom learning objectives.

Whether facilities that house students or buildings that serve the public, the unique and delicate aspects of the facility and its constituents must be taken into consideration while designing and implementing a lighting system upgrade. Planning our work and tightly controlling how we execute our plan helps us earn accolades in terms of safety, courtesy, public care, cleanliness, professionalism and proper disposal of all materials removed from the job site.
