Brightwork Finds Bright Solution
Arkon LED teams with real estate developer to satisfy commercial tenant needs
Brightwork Real Estate is quickly becoming an experienced LED buyer. And its senior project manager, Tom Williams, said the company has been very pleased with Arkon LED’s work on its latest development, a commercial center in Tampa, Fla.
“We’re using LEDs in some other places, and the cost savings and pricing are great,” he said. “Obviously we are happy with the work Arkon did.”
For Brightwork’s latest project, Arkon was able to add value by performing a detailed photometric analysis and delivering custom light fixtures and poles that perfectly suited the tenants of the shopping center.
“We’ve worked with the anchor tenant on this project, WOW! That’s Fast, in the past,” Arkon President Eleni Lelekis said. “We know exactly what they want in their lighting design, and we were able to deliver that same level of customer service to each of the businesses that will make this center home.”
Arkon was involved in the design, photometric planning to ensure optimal light distribution, and sourcing on the lighting install for this new construction project at 10902 North Dale Mabry Highway. The commercial center includes Eyeglass World, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen and Outback Steakhouse in addition to WOW! That’s Fast (WOW). Design work began in February 2015, and the job was awarded in April after several layout revisions. Arkon delivered the lights and poles for installation in August.
For this shopping center, Arkon engineers recommended 41 270-watt LED shoebox lights—10 silver fixtures for WOW and 31 bronze heads for the other tenants. WOW received five of its signature orange poles, and 19 bronze poles completed the center.
“We were able to give WOW and the other tenants poles and fixtures that were consistent with their overall branding,” Arkon Project Manager Graham Brown said. “Not only did the customer prefer the aesthetics of our options, we were also to save them a great deal of money.”
Brightwork Real Estate specializes in commercial development for their own accounts and private and corporate clients. From initial concept and vision, to site acquisition, to plans and construction, to finished product, the Brightwork team leverages its knowledge and experience to deliver professional service. Arkon LED executives said they were proud to be involved with the developer.
“Brightwork is a savvy real estate company, and we knew we could help them with this project,” Lelekis said. “We look forward to working with them in the future.”
