Pillars of Success – Commercial Office

At Bay Lighting, our top priority is… LIGHTING. Applying the scientific principles of lighting, we strive for optimal quantity and quality of light with each project; therefore, no matter the application, optimal lighting will always be the first pillar. Once proper lighting is achieved, then secondary goals can be attained. Here is an example of our 3 pillars when it comes to commercial office lighting.

Pillar 1: Optimal Lighting

Work space lighting impacts an employee’s alertness, as well as their health, mood, and productivity.

Pillar 2: Energy Efficiency

Dimmable lighting, sensors, controls, and LED lighting all contribute to savings.

Pillar 3: Reduced Operations Costs

Long-lasting LED reduces maintenance costs by reducing the amount of lamp changes over the lifetime of the lamp. This repurposes workers to other important tasks.

Beginning Your Lighting Project


Your lighting specialist’s main goal is to deliver the correct lighting for your application. As a first step, we will always recommend starting with the area that may pose the highest safety risk.

Converting to dimmable LED stairwell fixtures with sensors are a great way to save energy at your commercial office building. With the addition of LED, dimming, and sensors, stairwell lighting adhering to code will be programmed to full 100% illumination when occupied, and dimmed to 10% illumination when unoccupied. As you can see, the savings can really add up!

    What Our Clients Are Saying

    We used to have to change the fluorescent bulbs weekly which required getting out the lift, in addition to coordinating times with security so we didn’t set off any alarms. Since converting to LED, we haven’t had to replace any LED lamps which helps save on manpower and pays for itself.
    Rob, Smithsonian Institution
    What we appreciated most, besides your excellent service and prices, was the ease of installation and the quick return on investment due to the PEPCO rebate. We also love the brightness and light consistency in our garage now. Also since LEDs are not affected by temperature like fluorescent we will have a much brighter garage in the winter months. We estimate payback in 1 ½ months.
    Alex, JBG Smith
    Last year our hotel in Annapolis participated the BGE Instant Lighting Discount Program. It was as simple as purchasing $1 LED bulbs and observing the benefits. The LED A lamps were noticed right away by our customers, offering instant and superior illumination. With the task of changing light bulbs eliminated, our staff now has time to perform other needed tasks. The energy savings has been off the charts and our investment paid for itself in less than a few months. I would highly recommend this to any facility.
