Christmas Lighting for Commercial Properties At Mobile Illumination we believe that the commercial pre-install process we have developed over the past 14 years really makes a difference when choosing your Christmas lighting and décor company. To give an example of what you can expect when working with Mobile Illumination on your next commercial property’s Christmas lighting installation, we would like to walk through the process with you. To make this easy we will take a common situation we have seen hundreds of times with commercial properties over the years. We’ll take Jill for example. Although April seems a bit early, Jill has to set a budget for next year’s Christmas lighting design and install. Jill has contacted us from ACME Shopping Center and she has been tasked with finding a Christmas lighting company who can do everything from lighting the highest rooflines to wrapping the tallest palm trees, decorating the lamp posts with lighted garland and Christmas banners, and everything in between. Step 1: On-site Consultation This is where the process really begins and starts to take shape. A free consultation begins when one of our sales designers meets with Jill at the property to get a solid understanding of the ideas she has in mind. We walk the property with her expressing different design ideas based on our experience. Jill in this case loves the idea of using some LED wall wash lighting at the property’s main courtyard. While looking at the property we take things into consideration like property layout, trees, rooflines, visibility, ambient lighting, high traffic walkways, and roadways. This allows us to design the installation with the property’s visitors in mind. Throughout the walk we take pictures of important high traffic areas so that we can visually document the spaces that might be used for the Christmas lighting and décor design. We also talk to Jill about a budget that she has in mind so we can better provide her with something that she will be comfortable with. Step 2: Digital Design Jill feels really good about what she’s heard so far and loves some of the design ideas discussed during the consultation. She wants to move forward with a comprehensive installation plan incorporating the designs. This step is crucial to combining exactly what we have in mind and what Jill has in mind for her shopping center. Remember those pictures we took while on the property walk? We will now use those images to illustrate to Jill and her partners just what can be expected when the design is installed for the Holiday season. Through the use of state-of-the-art digital design technologies we transform those images from daylight shots of the property to night time magic featuring rooflines that are lit, 30-foot tall Christmas trees decorated with the shopping centers brand colors, palm trees wrapped in lights, and decorated wreaths hung on the peaks of the shopping center walls. This is a unique and special way for everyone involved at the property to get a sneak peak at what it might look like during the Holidays. This part of our process is done with the highest quality of design and the results are unbelievably accurate and beautiful. Step 3: The Proposal We take pride in our service to clients and we are focused on ensuring that Jill and her partners can trust Mobile Illumination with their Christmas lighting and décor for the Holidays. Now that we have consulted with Jill at the property, and we have our digital designs ready, we can now provide Jill an accurate and beautiful proposal. The proposal will include our experience in providing Holiday lighting for properties like ACME Shopping Center, profiles of the staff involved, testimonials from other clients, a proposed budget for all line items, and let’s not forget our digital designs to help visualize what the shopping center will look like. Step 4: The Final Stage We deliver the proposal to Jill so that she can share it with other decision makers at the Shopping Center. In this case everyone loves the ideas, the digital designs help them to visualize what they’re getting (they love the wall washes in the courtyard area), and the budget is in line. Our listed experience and recommendations set their minds at ease to know that they are working with the premiere Christmas lighting company in Los Angeles. This is an example to illustrate the type of experience many of our commercial clients have had when working with us. We’ve worked with shopping centers that include The Grove in Los Angeles, Americana at Brand, The Oaks Mall, and The Commons at Calabasas. Mobile Illumination serves all types of different commercial and municipal properties too. Some of which include the City of Beverly Hills, Santa Clarita, Burbank, Mercedes Benz in Calabasas, Calabasas Luxury Motors, Acura, and Bob Smith BMW. We have also worked with unique properties with custom designs like the LA Zoo, Pershing Square and the Queen Mary.
