Featured Project – MLS Coordinates Exterior LED Lighting Retrofit to Facilitate Sale of Glendale Office Building

Project Summary

Lincoln Properties is one the largest and most diversified real estate companies in the United States. As they approached the close of escrow on a building that they were selling, they ran into a snag. The exterior LED lighting on the building was failing, and the buyer insisted it be fixed. Although Lincoln had obtained bids from several contractors to fix the problem, none of them could explain their proposed solution in a way that gave Lincoln confidence that they would adequately address the buyer’s concerns. Time was running out, and Lincoln needed a comprehensive solution – fast.

Lincoln approached Monterey Lighting Solutions, and our team engaged quickly, prioritizing open and transparent communication. After gaining a complete understanding of the requirements, we went to work, vetting multiple solutions, ensuring the solution would meet both budget and aesthetics and developing a workable timeline that would allow for closing the transaction. Our hands-on approach included identifying a contractor to perform the work and project managing the entire process. The project was completed on time, within budget, and the sale closed without delay.
