LED retrofit generates energy savings for South Shore retail complex

Located in Longueuil, a short drive from downtown Montreal, Carrefour Saint-Hubert features a variety of retail tenants including Jean Coutu, Super C, Dollarama, and the SAQ. The 165,600 sq.ft. complex offers the growing community ample parking to meet their shopping needs. The property operators, First Capital REIT (FCR), decided it was time to upgrade the exterior lighting system to LED. The old post-top fixtures were removed and new shoebox-style LED fixtures were bolted onto the sides of the poles. New aluminum caps were installed at the top of the pole to protect the structure and the wiring from the elements. The finish of the new LED fixtures and caps was matched to the existing poles resulting in a uniform installation.

Exterior lighting retrofit improves safety and aesthetics at office building

The office building at 6100 Trans Canada Highway is a 60,000 sq.ft. facility in a high-traffic, high-visibility location in Pointe-Claire, Quebec. When the property owner embarked on a project to replace aging lampposts in the parking lot, the initial goal was to ensure its tenants’ safety. It was also the perfect opportunity to improve the curb appeal of the building by upgrading the exterior lighting at the same time. Concept Illumination proposed two single LED luminaires for the two poles in the front, and double luminaires everywhere else, for a total of 12 fixtures. The transformation has been remarkable. Visibly brighter, the new LED luminaires offer a wide distribution and even illumination of the parking lot and building pathways.
