Lighting and Your Bottom Line

New or Upgraded Lighting Systems = Money Well Spent

Tenant turnover is always the norm. In order to attract and retain tenants, new and rehabbed office spaces will benefit from lighting systems that can adapt to different tenants’ needs, activities and business goals. Smart business owners view their office spaces as a competitive tool for recruiting and retaining good talent and attracting new clients. It’s critical therefore, that building owners understand how their choice of lighting contributes to their tenant’s success as well as their own overhead, energy and disposal/recycling costs.

Property owners are often daunted by initial cost concerns when designing and specifying office lighting systems. However, compared to the cost of lighting equipment, installation, and the electricity to run it, employee costs can be from six to ten times greater. And, since lighting enhances employee productivity, their overall contribution to the company's bottom line will offset the cost of the new lighting systems on a comparative cost basis.

In summary, when improved lighting falls victim to budget cuts, it may actually raise your operating costs through diminished productivity in the work space.
