Featured Project – Avatar Hotel Undergoes Total Remodel, Enlists MLS to Facilitate Lighting Plan

Project Summary

Monterey Lighting Solutions worked with Camello General Contractor in Santa Clara, CA to help facilitate the lighting portion of a total remodel of the Avatar Hotel – a Hilton Boutique Hotel. The remodel included indoor and outdoor lighting for all hotel rooms, gym, pool area, conference rooms, reception, hotel rooms, bathrooms, restaurant/bar and coffee shop. The previous lighting design was inadequate in many areas, including the conference rooms and restaurant/kitchen, and the entire property required updating and modernization, which included the replacement of most luminaries and a total redesign of the lighting plan.

Monterey worked hand in hand with the general contractor and lighting designer to achieve budget consensus, while at the same time maintaining design integrity.
