Turn-Key LED Lighting Solutions for Flex Space

Flex space includes any flexible, mixed-use style of real estate like business parks, commercial strip centers, warehouse and small industrial companies.

With these properties, they typically have a combination of a warehouse with loading dock and office/retail space. Flexible space real estate may have common spaces, but the tenants that occupy these spaces can vary. Accordingly, flex space lighting needs also vary.

Popular turn-key lighting projects at flex space properties include:
What is the condition and cleanliness of your fixtures? Are they pleasing to the eye?

Exterior &

Perimeter and parking areas are important to operational and safety of personnel. Common types of products include wall packs, bollards, flood lights, and area lights.
Are there dark corners or below ground levels that aren’t receiving enough light?


Ceiling heights need to be taken into consideration for this application. High warehouse ceilings can be challenging to access and light output has to be specified accordingly.
As we walk the hallways, are they properly and consistently illuminated?


Common interior spaces found in mixed-use properties include offices, conference rooms, kitchens, and restrooms. Although spaces might be small in comparison to a commercial office building, fixture quantities can add up quickly with multiple units.
Many of these applications are ideal for quick and efficient LED conversion.

    Pillars of Success – Flex Space

    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 quality flex space lighting.

    Pillar 1: Optimal Lighting

    Proper illumination is our number one priority. Once optimal lighting is achieved, we can look at the other pillars to success. In regard to flex space properties, both interior and exterior lighting will be assessed and determined based on the application.

    Pillar 2: Energy Efficiency

    Dimmable lighting, sensors, controls, and LED lighting all can contribute to savings. Flex space properties may have different operating hours based on the tenant. Your lighting specialist will work to find the best energy savings without compromising illumination.

    Pillar 3: Reduced Operations Costs

    Long-lasting LED reduces maintenance costs by reducing the amount of lamp changes over the lifetime of the lamp. With flex space properties and high ceiling heights, changing light bulbs can be even more costly with rental equipment for hard to reach areas.

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

    There are many building codes, electrical codes, and emergency standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local regulations, and others that provide lighting guidelines and requirements for commercial and similar properties. These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
