Our technical professionals will also guide you in determining the location and amount of light for emergency exits as well. This will enable you to stay under the rules and regulations of the Chicago Building Code. 

Modeling Services

One of the biggest advantages of hiring NY Engineers is that we don’t believe in wasting time and money of our clients. We work on different types of drawings with minor details that focus on the amount of space between different fixtures along with a list of all the fixtures.

We develop these drawings for your assistance and of course to save time and money. Hence, these drawings will provide you with all the information on how many fixtures you will need in different areas and what should be the ideal amount of space in between them.

Our Expertise

NY Engineers have been around for a long time and this has allowed us to develop collaborations with different lighting experts in the field. This means that we are able to provide you with all the information on different rates and prices of lights that you can use in your spaces.

Cost Management

Cost Effectiveness

One of the biggest advantages of using photometric analysis is that it can drive costs down significantly. 3D rendering the results from software allows you to gauge the amount of light that you will need in each corner of your space. You can alter the model in all dimensions and for this reason; you can easily reduce or increase the amount of light within that 3D model.

Furthermore, it allows you to effectively plan for your lighting project without increasing the costs. Therefore, it is more than just finding the right amount of space between different fixtures. Most of the commercial and residential buildings now use photometric rending assessment before they install the lighting fixtures. We at NY Engineers can also run this test for you and provide you with all the minor details before you go for the fixture procurement.

Our lighting engineers will provide you with all the available options with which you can improve the light conditions in a particular space of your facility. This way you are planning ahead of your project both in terms of budget and time.

The Chicago Building Code Lighting Requirement

One of the primary reasons why the building code has intervened in this specific area is to reduce energy consumption. The government has now regulated that the building should not exceed a certain amount of lighting and reduces the consumption of energy. To meet the requirements set by the Chicago Building Code all construction projects must adhere to these lighting rules. Moreover, the building code closely aligns with the Energy Code to enable the building in the country to reduce their energy footprint.  

Therefore, a photometric test can prove to be very beneficial here. You can only focus on a certain amount of light in different areas where it is required. It will not only prevent you from breaking the code but will also allow you to save your facilities utility costs. With photometric testing, you can easily develop different scenarios and test different light conditions in various spaces.

Too many contractors

A Substitute for Multiple Contractors

One of the biggest reasons why your project cost increases is your choice of going for multiple contractors. Multiple contractors will increase the cost significantly because they vary in charges. Furthermore, hiring so many services for a single project is going to jeopardize your entire project.

Another disadvantage here is that you have to take care of different parties at the same time.  In most cases, one of the biggest reasons why you should not go for multiple contractors for photometric assessments is that they can adversely impact your project scheduling as well.
