Schools & Universities Require Expertise in Lighting Applications
Schools have numerous rooms where specific lighting needs to be applied, including libraries, auditoriums, classrooms, lecture halls, science labs, research areas, libraries, gymnasiums, theaters, cafeterias and food storage facilities, hallways, playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities, parking lots and walkways. The list is extensive and varied.
Designing the lighting for schools and universities requires comprehensive understanding and expertise in all types of lighting, extending all the way to street lights, in order to protect the eyes in both day and night.

Keeping Costs Within the Budget
Almost all schools and universities tend to have tight budgets. Plus, they change every year.
Lighting represents an average of 31% of the energy consumption in college and university education buildings in the U.S. When you consider how vital all the other expenses are in the field of education, energy management is of primary importance. Re-examining a school’s light system provides the opportunity to reduce energy consumption and costs.
Many educational establishments choose to retrofit their existing lighting system both inside and out with advanced technologies that can result in huge savings. It’s also important for schools and universities to lead the way in protecting the environment.
CBMC Lighting Solutions has helped numerous schools achieve their goals of minimizing upfront installation and ongoing maintenance cost while achieving high levels of durability. Budget constraints constantly challenge school districts and universities. Retrofitting an existing infrastructure throughout a school campus can save tens of thousands of dollars.
The Role of Lighting in School and University Security
School districts require high levels of security and safety for students and faculty at all hours. Even using street lights plays an integral part in achieving security. CBMC Lighting Solutions works with security departments to achieve the proper lighting to get the most out of the security cameras and monitoring equipment.
