Riverhead, NY – Thinking outside the box saves our client $10,000
The City of Riverhead, NY adopted new outdoor commercial lighting standards:
Maximum outdoor parking lot pole height: 16 ft. above grade and Color temperature: 3000K.
Client retained Green Lumens® to replace the existing 13 parking lot poles (35 ft.) with 16 ft. poles to comply with new lighting codes. At the same time, Green Lumens® upgraded 1000W 5000K Metal Halide fixtures to new150W 3000K LED fixtures. New photometric drawings were prepared for submission to the city.
Instead of having the client pay to purchase and install new 16’ 5” square steel poles, Green Lumens® chose to cut the existing poles to a 16 ft. mounting height to comply with the new code.
