The Ally Detroit Center at 500 Woodward Avenue recently began a transition of its outdated lighting infrastructure to an energy efficient LED system. Given recent advances in lighting technology, LEDs are now viable for all lighting applications and offer business, non-profit, and government facilities as a novel means to impact their bottom lines. With the ability to utilize LED technology for general illumination needs, facilities now have the opportunity to reduce their lighting energy consumption by upwards of 75%, which can mean tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars in electricity savings. Along with those energy savings, LEDs also offer maintenance savings through their greatly extended lifespans. Without the need to constantly replace burnt out lamps, LEDs reduce the need for both material costs as well as the labor required to install new lamps.
Toward realizing those benefits, Ally Detroit Center chose Woodward Energy Solutions, a project management firm specializing in LED system implementation, to complete a retrofit of its stairwells and its rooftop airplane lights. As a regional leader in LED retrofits headquartered in downtown Detroit, Woodward Energy Solutions offered the expertise as well as the operational infrastructure needed to complete the job. By leveraging its diverse set of LED manufacturers and installers, Woodward Energy Solutions was able to source the needed products and get them installed quickly and without disruption to the normal flow of the facility.
Mike Schmid, Executive Operations for Woodward Energy Solutions states,
“With newly installed LEDs, the Ally Detroit Center complex can expect to save tens of thousands of dollars on their energy and maintenance costs over the course of the system’s lifetime while also offering better lighting to its tenants, visitors, and employees.”
