JACKSON, MI, Sep 3, 2013 - Washington Market, a Sandor Development owned property located in Indianapolis, Indiana, and akin to Washington Square Mall, recently partnered with Cherry Logistics, and EverLast® Lighting, Inc. in an effort to lower their energy consumption, and upgrade their parking lot lighting.
"Sandor Development currently owns and manages more than 8 million square feet of commercial retail space in 25 states and continues to grow. When we partnered with Sandor, they asked us to provide a solution for a property in need of a substantial lighting upgrade," explained Tom Cashman, Representative of the Commercial Construction Services Division of Cherry Logistics. "Cherry had completed other similar lighting projects, and with the help of KSA Lighting, and EverLast® Lighting, we quickly had the proper solutions sized and ordered for this application. Cherry's network of installation contractors allows us to be very competitively priced and still offer all of the 'on the ground' leg work to make sure the project goes smoothly and performs as expected."
Washington Market replaced all of their 1000 watt high pressure sodium fixtures with EverLast® induction 300 watt shoebox fixtures that produce an equivalent light output allowing them to achieve maximum savings. "When it was determined that an induction system would be used, EverLast®'s reputation for quality and performance left little doubt in my mind as the clear choice," stated Cashman.
The EverLast® 300 watt induction shoebox fixture utilizes enhanced optics, improving fixture efficiency 30% and increasing overall light distribution by 35%. The preliminary design analysis indicated a savings of over 50% with a 15% increase in illumination in the parking lot area. The 300 watt Induction shoebox fixture installation was intended to replace all of the 1000w high pressure sodium fixtures, and in addition, Sandor Development was also able to receive a rebate from Indianapolis Power and Light. The local utility's rebate program entitled them to a return of 200 hundred dollars per fixture.
EverLast® induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than metal halides and last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. The EverLast® 300 watt Classic Shoe Box fixtures provide a more natural and high color rendition light quality than traditional metal halide or high pressure sodium fixtures. EverLast® Induction lighting fixtures are also available with a dimmable option, providing even more energy savings while areas are vacant. "All feedback regarding the installation of the new fixtures has been positive, and the elimination of the HPS haze has been welcomed. I was very pleased with the look of the property during our night audit of the performance, and visual aesthetics," commented Cashman.
The EverLast® shoebox fixtures are commonly used in surface parking lots and can be found installed at Allegiance Health in Jackson, Michigan, Crippen Auto Mall in Lansing, Michigan, Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee, and Kelly Chevrolet in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.
