D.P. Lund Company can offer a number of options when it comes to energy and lighting upgrades that save money. We work with the owner to make sure their energy and lighting needs are met all the while working to create an energy efficient design.
Here’s one we’re really proud of. As part of the second phase of energy upgrades on the University of Montana Campus we were charged with upgrading the exterior lighting of the Main Hall Clock Tower. The new lights use 37% less energy and will last 3900% longer! That’s not a typo; the projected life of the new lights running from dusk to dawn every night is 13 years! The savings in maintenance will be astounding.
The best part is that the new fixtures do a far superior job of lighting this iconic landmark. That was no accident; we ran photometric studies during design.

This ARRA and Department of Environmental Quality funded project contemplated analyzing the energy efficiency of existing building lighting. Then appropriate light fixtures were either upgraded or replaced. In addition, lighting controls were added to maximize energy conservation. The project was broken into four separate bid packages.
All totaled the project addressed the lighting of nearly 600,000 square feet.
The UM Western Upper Gym space utilized 400-watt mercury vapor high bay fixtures for area lighting. Our design included TSHO fixtures and occupancy sensors for fixture control. The client now has lighting that will turn on and off without lengthy restart times, has controls for energy savings, and lighting that is much more pleasant.
