LIGHTING PROJECTS

Natural light is the most ecological, sustainable source of light and the one most closely connected to human well-being. The goal of a lighting project or a luminotechnical project is to reconcile the source of natural light with artificial light sources to create environments or to illuminate enclosed or public spaces according to the activities that take place in them.

A luminotechnical project should include the following stages:

  • Determining the lighting aims
  • Choosing the light sources and the most suitable luminaires
  • Calculating the number of luminaires
  • Distributing the luminaires
  • Calculating economic viability

Arquiled develops lighting projects in three areas: street lighting, architectural lighting and commercial lighting.

STREET LIGHTING

A street lighting project can serve different purposes – improve security in areas with road and/or pedestrian traffic, increase economic activity in certain zones, increase pedestrian flow, reduce the incidence of criminal acts in critical areas, or promote certain spaces like leisure areas, monuments and historical zones. Whatever the primary purpose may be, it is essential to reconcile functionality with aesthetics and technical regulations.

Technically, there are international standards that each country transposes to its internal standardization directives, with recommendations for best design practices and how to determine the different lighting classifications to be applied in each situation according to the type of roadway, degree of usage, traffic speed, the need for facial recognition and the type of surface, among other parameters (European standard EN 13201).

The Arquiled team provides full support in designs and projects for street lighting installations, ensuring best planning practices (light planning), compliance with the technical standards of each geographical area, aesthetic concerns regarding the identity of the location, and the project’s economic viability.

ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING

The creation indoor and outdoor ambiences is the main aim of this discipline, where the art of combining natural and artificial light finds its highest expression.

Whether it involves featuring a brand on a facade, implementing office areas or creating mood lighting, our team of light designers provides our clients with full expert support in developing the solution that best combines economic viability with your goals, to maximize investment returns.

COMMERCIAL LIGHTING

This is the project category with the largest diversity of situations, offering architects and light designers the widest range of possible approaches.

Our light design team provides full sizing services, both for designing new installations and for renovating existing systems that are usually based on high-reactance, high-maintenance, high-consumption HID and fluorescent lamps. In addition to a lighting study, we provide an economic feasibility study and present you with solutions that have fast ROIs (payback).

BENEFITS

Technical Expertise

Our know-how is put at the service of our clients to design the lighting solution that best serves the project objectives and budget constraints.

Sustainable and Efficient Solutions

We guarantee the technical, economic and environmental sustainability of the systems we propose. All our solutions are based on LED technology to ensure greater longevity as well as minimal maintenance and energy consumption.

Fast Return on Investment – Payback

We are native in LED technology, so we have an expertise in designing solutions with fast returns on investment resulting from the energy savings generated. We guarantee investment returns compatible with our customers’ investment cycles, in many cases with payback periods of less than 1 year.

Overall Cost Reduction

Our multidisciplinary team of light designers has access to a range of technical resources as well as the ability to understand our client’s business. This is deployed during the initial stages of the project, enabling us to add enormous value by reducing the structural, implementation and maintenance costs of our lighting solutions.

TESTIMONIALS

Nelson Brito
Mayor of Aljustrel

“It is therefore a gain in terms of the environment and of management, which meant we did not hesitate to replace conventional lighting with LEDs, and the result was fantastic.”
