Our relationship with Namdar is strong as can be, and the project we did for Tanger Outlets property is another success story of over 100 properties nationwide that we're doing from them.
They are looking at us to not only improve their lighting quality and footcandle requirements on ground level to meet IES standards for safety purposes, as well to maximize energy savings of the property. The way we go about maximizing energy savings is to reduce energy consumption, not only in the lights that are being used but also in the way we control them. To put it simply, we are making sure the lights come on when it's dark, and making sure the lights go off when the center is closed.
Another property involved in Namdar's phase three updates was the Jackson Crossing mall located in Jackson, Michigan. Jackson Crossing provides the ideal environment to shop, meet or eat, and provides a number of great services that can be found within their walls. Unfortunately, they were having issues with how much they were spending to keep the lights on at the property. Like the rest of the Namdar-owned locations, Electro-Matic Visual stepped in to help.
Electro-Matic Visual has heard nothing but positivity from patrons and workers in the area. Mall managers going out of their way to mention how grateful they were for the LED lighting upgrade because it saved them so much money that they were able to stay open. They are so happy with how much brighter and better the lighting upgrade works—coming on at the right time and it going off when they need it to as well.
Aside from saving them money and energy, a huge benefit to upgrading lighting comes from the employees at the property. Since installation, there have been numerous occasions of them going out of their way to sake our installer's hand to thank them and tell them how much we have helped their business. We have also been told employees are just so much happier feel safer getting to their car when doors close at 11 o'clock and have to walk to their cars at night.
