Our lighting design team travels nationwide to deliver both expertise and impeccable holiday lighting installation services to resorts, hotels, country clubs, and commercial landscapes. Our specialists represent an eclectic skill set developed after many years of cross training in multiple parallel industries that add value, unique distinction, and cost effective operability to outdoor holiday lighting. Strategic partnerships with architectural and landscaping design firms allow us the unique advantage of blending exterior illumination with the very fabric of Nature itself and the genius of human engineering. Our certification as an electrical designer and electrical contractor also adds value to our rising presence in hospitality lighting. With an engineering-level knowledge of components, fixtures, and power systems, we deliver more options and a greater diversity of solutions with safer, more durable, and more energy-conscious equipment.
Our status as a distinguished lighting design services firm and our single-vendor status of top commercial grade holiday lighting fixtures place us in a very unique position in our industry. With history and experience, we can accommodate tradition. With technical readiness, we can drive evolution forward. Perhaps the greatest example of this is the recent explosion of diode-based illumination- otherwise known as LED lighting—into the world of design. Holiday lighting installation no longer requires limitations to be environmentally sound and conservation-focused. New LED fixtures have emerged on the market that now make it possible to power extremely large lighting displays with limited circuits and only minimal power. This is a key benefit even for large hotel chains and resort facilities that have the budgets to afford the very best in equipment, as funds are better invested in impeccable design and superior technology than on consumable, non-renewing energy. LED holiday architectural lighting design brings outdoor landscapes to new levels of light and variety. We have literally thousands of ornamental, accent lights, decorative, and task-oriented fixtures in both specialty and traditional designs that will transform architecture and property into a virtual reality world of Christmas and specialty lights.
Integrating the new with the traditional is not something everyone can accomplish. Not only does it require superb knowledge of electronics and safety, but it also involves the ability to apply creativity on a practical level. One of the many elements that differentiate ILD’s holiday high-end lighting installation methods is our ability to minimize physical wiring. Physical wires pose a number of problems on several levels. The risk of short-circuiting due to inclement seasonal weather makes them both an operable hazard and a possible safety hazard. From an aesthetic perspective, they are also something of an eyesore. By contrast, our professionals often substitute standard wires with custom wiring harnesses that support fixtures but hide their own appearance. Our holiday lighting themes are therefore cleaner, appearing to the observer to be linked by rays of light rather than insulated copper. Specialized equipment used on commercial lighting projects of this caliber are not commonly available through lower grade manufacturing channels, and it is almost completely absent on the open retail market. In order to make our highly customized and painstakingly installed displays not only shine—but last over time—we must use the very highest quality UL Approved, commercial grade fixtures, lamps, and supports.
For resorts and hotels it is a convenience to have premier landscape, Christmas tree lights, and various architectural keynotes brought to the forefront with cost-savings outdoor holiday lighting. For commercial properties in the corporate world, however, even many larger budgets have to take a more cautionary approach to investing a fortune for seasonally relevant design work or architectural outdoor lighting. For these entities, it is vitally important that any design we install incorporate two key elements to produce justify their investment: ease of operability and long equipment life. Since outdoor holiday lights advertise a corporate facility with a visible presence, it is necessary that they be left on longer at reduced costs and that they require only a minimum of hands-on operation. Outdoor maintenance crews on campus normally do not have the skill sets to operate these systems, and many employees are often on vacation at this time of year. For this reason, ILD installs the highest commercial grade equipment that is both weather resistant and capable of enduring multiple setup installations over the years to come. To improve user friendliness, we uses sophisticated timers and dimmers that automate outdoor lighting so holiday events and visiting strategic partners can enjoy the lights as a self-sustaining aesthetic that requires no visible human interface to control.
These commercial lighting systems cannot be marketed as generic kits or pre-fabricated templates. Each holiday lighting system is a specialty design custom-tailored to the geography, topography, and building architecture of hotels, country clubs, resort locations, and large commercial facilities on case by case bases.
