SITE DESCRIPTION
Pacific Metals Recycling International Ltd. is a fourth generation, family-owned company with locations in Delta and Vancouver, BC. Pacific Metals is in the “reduce, reuse, recycle” world. The president wanted to renovate its Delta location.

PRIMARY CHALLENGE
The main goal was to maximize energy savings and improve the lighting levels.

SECONDARY CHALLENGE
Pacific Metals needs to be on top of security as scrap metal theft is common. The President wanted to increase the security by increasing the lighting around the building. In addition, 40% of the building space was being used by a tenant that Pacific Metals had rented the space to. It was important to ensure the installation would not interrupt the tenant’s operations and would minimize downtime for Pacific Metals.

PROCESS
PVL first met with the president to establish the company’s goals and priorities. We then provided a comprehensive audit of the facility, identifying areas for lighting improvement and energy savings. PVL recommended a combination of fixture and bulb replacements, sourcing the most appropriate products from various suppliers. Due to the existing lighting design and age of the building and cabling, a number of modifications were also required.
