Parking Lot lighting Installation Gay Family Kia
Case Study

Adequate parking lot illumination is an investment that will bolster security and safety considerations within your organization while simultaneously improving the visibility of your enterprise at night to increase general awareness to those who may otherwise be unaware of your establishment. National LED recently partnered with Gay Family Kia in Dickinson, TX to accomplish all these items and much, much more. Gay Family Kia was looking to expand the footprint of their dealership to increase their inventory capabilities to better serve their customers. With additional real estate, on-premises capable of serving expansion efforts, and an existing parking area that was historically utilized for overflow/ employee parking; the friendly folks at Gay family Kia found themselves at an end pass.


This project began with a site visit to discuss the vision of what exactly Gay family Kia aimed to accomplish, lessons learned from previous projects, and pitfalls they aimed to avoid. This positioned National LED to come in on-time, under budget, and exceeding our customers’ expectations in every capacity.


The scope of this project required adding breakers in existing service panels of 2 differentbuilding locations, sawing 1,000’+ of concrete, running power to 10 new pole locations, followed by burying/ pouring fresh concrete to cover the new power supply and additionally, pour the foundation for these 10 new light pole locations. Lastly, Gay family Kia wanted a fresh-looking parking lot to complement their vastly improved lighting, so in addition to the scope of services detailed above, the last item on the docket was resurfacing this area with new asphalt.


While a project of this scope and complexity might traditionally be limited to the scope of a General Contractor, and a plethora of sub-contractors (and their subsequent price mark-up); this is where National LED is uniquely aligned to best serve its clientele through unparalleled quality of work & LED fixtures, world class project managers that are always but a phone call away, and the friendly customer service provided by our staff that speaks for itself. Click Here to See National LED Reviews
