Arkon Helps Clearwater Law Firm Highlight Brand

LED Parking Lot lighting installation gives law firm leg up on competition

The Perenich Law Group is in a tough market. As personal injury trial attorneys, Greg, Tim, and Terrance Perenich know their competition will stop at nothing to advertise their services.

But the Perenich brothers aren’t the type for flashy signs. So they turned to LEDs to highlight their brand while keeping it classy.

“We are very proud of our offices,” Greg Perenich said. “While many lawyers spend a lot on billboards, our office is our billboard. The new lighting helps us show our clients that we are a stable, reputable firm that’s been here a long time.”

The idea started when the law firm looked to replace the costly, high-maintenance metal halide lights in its parking lot. Installed in 2010, the 12 400-watt fixtures were often going out and running up big electric bills. What if the Perenich Law Group could both save money on electricity and maintenance and show itself in the best possible light?

Arkon Power knew it could be done.

The energy and lighting solutions firm installed three 160-watt LED flood lights to illuminate the Perenich logo and building, replaced the front line parking lot fixtures with four 320-watt LED lights and swapped out the remaining eight halides for 280-watt LEDs. In addition to eliminating maintenance expenses for years to come, the lighting should save the Perenich Law Group about 25% every month.

“We were able to increase the illumination in the parking lot and add the highlights to the front of the building, all while delivering significant cost savings,” Arkon Technical Manager Graham Brown said. Arkon customized the lens angles on each fixture for maximum efficiency and limited up-front costs by working with the law firm’s existing light poles.

Greg Perenich said the project was handled by Arkon “smoothly and professionally with no issues whatsoever,” and he and his group have been impressed with the illumination. Not only has it beautifully highlighted the firm’s branding, it’s made everyone using the parking lot after dark feel safer.

“We’re very pleased with the finished product,” he said. “It is very professional looking at night, the brightness is astounding and the uplighting is a great touch. For us, it’s been a win-win.”

Boos Development Designs Efficient New Office Space With LEDs

Energy savings were just the beginning when this leading real estate developer looked to install efficient lighting.

Boos Development Group prides itself on giving customers from Miami to San Francisco the most comprehensive, thoughtful real estate service on the market. So it was no surprise the company thought of every detail—right down to the heat coming off the lighting—when it designed new offices in Clearwater, Florida (Pinellas County).

“It was a brand new space, so we were able to do exactly what we wanted to do,” said Eric Lindsey, the company’s senior vice president of real estate development. “And what we wanted was for it to be as cool and efficient as possible.”

Boos did its due diligence and decided LED lighting would give the company the combination of cool lighting and ambiance it wanted. The next step? Find a lighting provider who could live up to Boos’ own project management standards.

Enter the Arkon Power team, which performed a detailed photometric analysis and suggested a sophisticated array of 12-watt recessed lights and 40- and 50-watt LED flat panels to optimize quality and efficiency. Two dozen of the panel lights are fitted with backups to ensure persistent lighting in the event of an emergency.

“It is a much bigger space than our old office, so we thought, ‘how do we drive down costs?’ and LEDs were a no brainer,” Lindsey said. “Before, we had fluorescent lights throughout, and utilities and maintenance were a concern. We were doing a lot of replacement for sure.”

Once Arkon was onboard for the new construction project, Lindsey said installing the lighting “was seamless,” and the new fixtures are performing exactly as expected, delivering high quality light with no heat production.

“It has definitely been a positive experience,” he said. “We have already recommended Arkon to our commercial clients.”

Arkon Director of Business Development Eleni Lelekis likewise had positive things to say about working with Boos.

“It’s so nice to go into a project with a group that has explored all available lighting technology and decided on LEDs,” she said. “We know a company like Boos Development can choose to work with anyone in lighting, and we’re happy they decided Arkon was best suited to their needs.”
