Architectural Lighting Installation


What is architectural lighting installation?

Architectural lighting installation encompasses the process of designing, positioning, and installing lighting fixtures and systems within a building or outdoor space to enhance its aesthetic appeal, functionality, and overall ambiance.
Elements included in the installation process are:
- Installation of Fixtures
- Wiring & Connection of Fixtures
- Client Training & Post-Installation Support



When using PORT for your outdoor architectural lighting or indoor architectural lighting installation needs, you can expect support and expertise through every step of the process. Our installers have the unique capabilities to design & build architectural installations from the ground up.

Our team takes their extensive knowledge of architectural lighting design, installation, and controls, and applies that expertise into every aspect of the installation process.


What to Expect When Using PORT For Your Architectural Lighting Installation

Step 1: Preparation

The installation process begins with bringing in all required equipment to make the lighting installation a success. On arrival our team will work to ensure that the working space is clear of obstructions, electrical connections are in place, and that design plans are readily available.

Step 2: Installation of Fixtures

Once preparations are complete, it is time to install the fixtures.
Using a lighting plan, fixtures will be placed in exact locations according to the design drawings. These fixtures will then be mounted to their required surfaces to ensure permanent

Once these fixtures are placed, they will have to be connected to
the existing electrical system by a licensed electrician. This can
include running power cables, low-voltage wiring, and attaching
control cables to each individual fixture.

Once all fixtures are mounted and connected, they will be tested
to ensure they are working correctly. Any fixtures that are not up
to standard will be adjusted until all issues are resolved.

Step 3: Controls Integration

Once all of the fixtures are mounted and connected, it is time for
the setup of a control system. This architectural lighting system can include dimmers, sensors, timers, and even smart controls.The installation team will work to ensure the control is set up and ready to work on any/all requested lighting schemes.

 Once the control system is set up, the PORT Team will ensure the system is commissioned and programed up to customer requirements.

Step 4: Training & Ongoing Support

After the architectural lighting is installed, programed, and set up
our team will come on-site to provide end-user training. These
trainings are meant for any end-users including but not limited to
building owners and facility managers.

These trainings will teach end-users how to operate and control the
lighting system. The training can include tasks such as turning lights
on and off, adjusting brightness, setting lighting scenes, and
troubleshooting common issues. If there is a complex control system or automation involved in the installation, training can also demonstrate how to use touch panels, mobile apps, or other control interfaces.

When using PORT for your lighting installation needs, our team will
be available for ongoing support as long as needed. This support
can include maintenance, repairs, and replacements.
