Brookestone is an office complex located in Kokomo, Indiana with 19,000+ square feet that is comprised of office suites and conference rooms to fit small business needs.  This building was formerly the home of a local UAW so the building underwent an extensive remodel through Perkins Contracting.  Their renovations included lighting retro-fits to the interior and exterior fixtures and new signage to advertise for their tenants; all of which were provided and installed by Huston Electric.

The lighting retro-fits were extensive both on the interior and exterior of the building.  Fortunately, the cost was off-set due to Duke Energy’s rebate program for energy efficiency upgrades.  Duke’s rebate incentive totaled upwards of $18,000 to compensate for the investment in retro-fitting so many fixtures.

Retro-fits included:

  • 87 surface mounted LED panels in office & conference rooms
  • 30 recessed LED fixtures
  • 43 occupancy sensors
  • 14 vapor tight LED fixtures for the fitness center’s locker rooms
  • 10 LED high bays in the fitness center
  • 15 EXIT signs

Scott Perkins provided the following testimonial:

“I am very pleased with the finished product at Brookestone due in large part to Huston Signs and Electric.  When I decided to completely renovate the lighting in this 19,000 sq ft facility, I knew I needed an expert in the field of lighting and electrical.  Huston Electric met or exceeded all of my expectations.  Rick, Dennis, and their team produced a product that looks and functions great.  They even took care of all the rebate paper work from Duke to save over $18,000 on the project.”

Dennis Lane, Lighting Retro-fit Specialist for Huston Electric, encourages our customers to upgrade lighting systems to LED because of the energy savings and reduction in maintenance cost along with the incentives that Duke Energy offers.  Dennis provides free quotes, specs to show ROI for energy savings, estimates on rebates through Duke Energy, lighting layouts, and free samples on a trial offer.
