How does a company install 559,145 Direct Wire LED lamps across 3,763 locations within an 8-month timespan?
For Sherwin-Williams, the call came to Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve.
While the aggressive request was overwhelming to other contacted vendors, Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve leveraged their trusted installation team, massive planning capability, rebate filing relationships, and Express Truck Roll methodology to deliver on-time, and below budget.
Managing a successful nationwide rollout of LED retrofits across 3700+ locations requires an experienced team to coordinate product, installation crews, and rebate administration.
The Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve Project Management Team
The orchestrating of installation of 559,145 Direct Wire LED lamps across 3,763 locations is one of great control, technology, flexibility and scheduling.
This means forecasting product availability, individual crew and location scheduling, seasonal weather forecasting, rebate availability, material procurement and staging, as well as nationwide recycling pickups.
During the project, dedicated project teams balanced materials, coordinated installer expectations, provided clear visibility to the client, and Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve managed scheduling.
Accurate asset data is provided to the client throughout the process with our cloud-based management system. Along with assets, real time project check-ins monitor scope adherence, troubleshoot site conditions, and scale workflow as required to stay on schedule.
The Sherwin-Williams corporate facility team, and individual store managers were all involved in approving plans and scheduling, and had complete project visibility before the bulk of the project began.
The Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve Rebate Team
We’re not afraid to tell you- this Sherwin-Williams project was our largest and most aggressive rebate administration effort to date. Never before have we filed so many rebates for one program so quickly.
Throughout the aggressive installation schedule and over the following few months, we filed 1,142 applications and secured $976k in utility rebates for our client.
Our process adds value to our clients. Relationships, expertise, and technology means maximum rebate dollar returns. Our rebate team’s integration with Illumetek’s project management group, utilizing our cloud-based ARC management system, mean nothing gets missed.
Working with Illumetek was fantastic. Not only was I happy with the speed and drive used to get over 3800 locations retrofitted in 8 months, but their communication was both prompt and transparent. For a program of this size to run that smoothly was an unprecedented experience on our end.
