Les Schwab Broadway

See customer experience in a whole new light

Challenge

The Les Schwab auto group is known across the Northwest for superb customer service. So it’s no wonder that the team at their Broadway location was ready to tackle lighting challenges head-on. Not only did their outdated lighting contribute to excessive energy costs – it also deterred potential customers, and made it challenging for employees to perform technical tasks. Les Schwab was ready to invest in a more productive work space, and a more comfortable environment for customers waiting for their vehicles to be serviced.

Solution

Pacific Energy Concepts implemented progressive lighting technology to help Les Schwab improve customer experience, boost employee productivity, and reduce energy use. We installed LED fixtures with a unique integrated control system in customer-facing areas – a strategy that detects natural light levels, and in turn, automatically dims artificial light to maximize energy savings. Aesthetics and performance both significantly improved, creating a more welcoming environment for employees and customers alike.
