Waypoint specializes in designing and installing energy efficient lighting retrofit projects for existing public, commercial, institutional and industrial facilities. At Waypoint, we believe in taking the time needed to perform detailed, comprehensive audits of the existing lighting system and then offering creative solutions that maximize long- term energy savings and minimize life-cycle cost.
We manage complete energy efficiency upgrade projects from audit, engineering and product specification to materials management, installation, rebate and warranty administration. Waypoint Lighting is proficient in all areas of lighting project development including: facility lighting audits • COMcheck & Energy Star Portfolio Manager services • technology & controls evaluation • system design & specification • energy savings, payback and cash flow economic analysis • purchasing-materials management • installation-project management • utility incentive/rebate administration • EPAct tax deduction certification • warranty administration • third party project evaluation & consulting.
The Right Solution
We never try to sell a lighting technology or solution without first understanding the needs of your facility. Our final proposal may include new LED, e-HID or Linear Fluorescent lighting products. The technology and design solution will be determined only AFTER we understand YOUR objectives and how they will impact your operation. The right solution may include refitting existing light fixtures with the newest internal components or possibly reconfiguring and reducing the total number of fixtures with newer LED technology that allows for greater control of the light output.
The Right Price
As a result of our long-term relationships with manufacturers, distributors and installation partners, Waypoint is able to offer our services at a competitive price. We are a design-build professional services firm and would rather not participate in a three-bids-and-a-cloud-of-dust exercise against companies that are only out to make a quick buck by cherry picking a project and then offering the cheapest cookie-cutter "LED" option they can find. We understand and can design our projects to meet short-term investment hurdles, but it should not be accomplished by shifting cost to future operations.
A well-designed lighting system that includes lighting controls with quality, long-life components may have a slightly higher first cost and longer simple payback but will yield greater cost savings and have a higher ROI, lower life-cycle cost and provide a higher-quality work environment. Make sure you are evaluating an apples-to-apples solution because no two project designs are the same.
