The Carrollwood Village Association recently requested lighting advice to enhance some specific common areas in the neighborhood. Accurate Technologies met with key board members, listened to their concerns and ideas, and submitted a range of solutions, as detailed below.
A central recreation area of the Village is the large soccer field and sports complex which is arranged in a triangular apex between two busy roads. The area includes a picturesque pond, bordered by a stand of mature oaks. The board requested that these oaks be lit with high powered flood lights. Accurate installed underground power to the appropriate locations and connected the flood lights with photocell controls, so that they run from dusk to dawn. The board also requested that power outlets be installed throughout the location, in anticipation of future neighborhood events under the oaks.
In another area of the neighborhood, a road that leads to a quiet residential area is divided by a median. The oaks in the median are healthy and full, but they prevent the street lights from safely lighting the road. Accurate Technologies decided to use the arrangement of trees to advantage, and suggested a low voltage system for the median. The result is a very visible roadway enhanced by the oaks which provide a grand entrance to the neighborhood at the end of the street.
