Consider bringing in a professional to create a lighting plan for your new construction.

Filling a new space with all the necessary items can be both exciting and stressful. MaintenX International wants to help facility managers create welcoming and engaging spaces for guests, residents and staff by selecting the right lighting. MaintenX International offers industry best practices for facility managers working to illuminate a new building.

“Consider bringing in a professional to create a lighting plan for your new construction,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “A lighting expert knows how to select appropriate lighting according to the function of each room and can help you create the best space for your employees and guests.”

Don’t Over-Light
Consider the function of each room and how much customers or staff will make use of each room. Create a lighting plan for your new construction to utilize each space fully without wasting resources and time on lighting that isn’t necessary. If you start with the function of each area you can adjust lighting to meet your needs. There are many lighting options to consider and many choices include energy saving opportunities too!

Think Ahead
By planning ahead, you can avoid additional and unnecessary work in the future. Move lighting to the most functional part of the room because things are easier to move during construction than after. This includes setting up automatic lighting or dimmers, switch placement and easily accessible control panel locations. Schedule a walk through once lighting has been installed. Check for low hanging lights or areas where lighting can be adjusted before you move onto the next phase of construction.

Choose Amenities with Staff and Customers in Mind
Incorporate automatic lighting where possible. Choose stylish light switches that are both attractive and useful. It’s important to consider staff and customers’ needs when deciding on which amenities to include in your lighting plan. Kitchen and meeting rooms should be well lit, whether through natural lighting or tailored fixtures to bring a warm and welcoming feel to the space.
