Exterior Lighting LED Conversion Architecture/Engineer Selection

Exterior Lighting LED Conversion
NC State Project #201620008

The project will convert exterior public lighting for Roads, walks, Drives, service lots, and pathways from existing lamp types to LED lamps and fixtures that meet the campus design standard. The geographic area will be North, Central, South & Centennial Campus precincts. This will be treated as a self-performed energy project which will utilize energy savings to fund debt used to finance the installation. The design will be by an engineering firm acting as the designer of record. The engineer will perform an investment grade audit to quantify the savings and establish the financial viability of the project. Construction will be accomplished through a single prime bid. Contractors will be pre-qualified to perform the work.
