A checklist like this one is helpful in guiding a project, but not sufficient. It doesn’t replace the need for in-depth conversations with clients that clearly define what they’re expecting and will require later. Nailing down answers to these questions will help down the line, for example when it’s time to sign a long-term maintenance contract or establish a financial services arrangement. Is the client looking for circular lighting or a Light as a Service option?
You also need to understand the client’s long-term objectives. What do they think about smart city applications? Are they planning to leverage upcoming sensor and software applications?
You’ll need to know these things so that you can select the best possible lighting partner, one who can not only handle implementation but perhaps also work with the customer after installation is complete. After all, the job doesn’t end when the lighting system is installed.
