Whatever the size of your business CPWS can study your indoor and outdoor lighting and recommend solutions that best fit your needs.

Indoor applications include the design and location of energy-efficient fluorescent lighting in commercial facilities and high-intensity discharge lighting in industrial buildings.

Outdoor applications include lighting design for parking lots, sport fields, roadways, and building exteriors. There are a number of ways in which outdoor lighting can benefit your business:

Low-cost Crime Protection
Crime is one of the biggest problems facing our nation today, and security is the name of the game. Your customers will feel more secure crossing a well lit parking lot. Outdoor lighting discourages would-be intruders, reduces theft and vandalism, and helps police officers spot potential problems.

Good lighting reduces the possibility of injuries sustained by employees or customers tripping over curbs or other parking lot hazards. And with automatic dusk-to-dawn controls, no one has to remember to turn the lights on or off.

Lighting spotlights your business and lets customers know you’re open. Lighting provides your business with the warm, inviting atmosphere customers appreciate.

Outdoor lighting can extend the use of outdoor facilities beyond the daylight hours. Picnic and garden areas open for use at night boost employee morale and comfort.

Call Us Today and We Can: 
Analyze your specific lighting needs.
Design a lighting plan that fits your location and budget.
Set up a leasing plan that includes installation and maintenance of the system.
