Go Green with Commercial

It’s a no-brainer that a big building uses up a lot of energy and can produce a lot of wasteful issues during the construction. Nowadays, conserving energy and making areas greener is a top priority among most cities when it comes to new construction. Going green in commercial construction has an incredible amount of perks, with vaguely zero downsides. To put this into better perception, buildings, including commercially owned, are responsible for 40% of the energy usage across the planet. That’s the PLANET; not country, not continent, but the whole she-bang. Imagine a world where every building went green, here is what would be accomplished.

  • Thought the initial cost of the construction is higher to go green than conventional buildings, it has been proven that the amount saved on energy, water, and maintenance costs far outweighs the potential sticker shock.
  • Insulation used in green construction is typically recycled and sustainable. Some companies even use a material very close to fiberglass, except its denim! Old jeans that are tossed aside, ruined, or wasted are given new life to insulate the walls of an eco-friendly building.
  • Dual plumbing allows for less water consumption, using reclaimed water for the toilet and landscape irrigation and potable water for everything else.
  • Going green can be quite literal in eco-friendly construction. Buildings built with green in mind have the abilities to  grow gardens on the rooftops and have what’s referred to as “living walls."  Living walls, also known as bio-walls, reflect solar radiation, improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, and absorb rainwater that would otherwise be runoff.

In short, going green in the commercial construction of new buildings is the smartest decision one can make before breaking ground. It will save money and also help save the earth, one construction site at a time.

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

Marc M., Chief Building Engineer, Healthcare Trust of America

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.
