Case Study
New Jersey University Turns to FSG for Indoor and Outdoor Lighting Upgrade


Since its founding in 1923, Rowan University has evolved from a teacher preparation college to a bustling regional university that's ranked among the best public universities in the North by U.S. News and World Report. Today, Rowan's more than 14,000 students choose from more than 80 bachelor's and 60 master's degree programs, five doctoral programs, and two professional certification programs. The university is one of just 56 institutions in the country with accredited programs in business, education, engineering, and medicine.

In 2015, with an eye toward building on its past success with an investment in its future, Rowan University put out a bid to upgrade interior and exterior lighting under the NJ ESIP program. When it was time to make a decision, Rowan University turned to FSG's New Jersey branch to complete this important project.


FSG was awarded a contract to upgrade the lighting in the University Library, Student Center, Recreation Center, Parking Garage, and several surface parking lots. The project scope included over 2,000 fluorescent retrofit kits, LED fixtures in the parking garage, LED high bays in the recreation center gyms, and new fixtures in the weight rooms. New poles and LED outdoor fixtures were also installed, which included trenching and wiring.


Upon project completion, energy costs for lighting at Rowan University were reduced by 65%, while new LED fixtures provided much longer life and reduced maintenance. Controls were included with outdoor LED and parking garage fixtures, including step dimming controlled by occupancy sensors, photo-cells, and time clocks.

Throughout the project, FSG crews performed their work with minimal or no disruption to the normal operations at the university. All work was completed to the satisfaction of Rowan University's representatives, and with new lighting the school stepped out toward a brighter, more modern, and more energy-efficient future.

FSG projects consistently deliver excellence for our  customers, for our employees, and for the communities we serve.

We see each project as an opportunity to embrace our mission and provide superior value through quality products, service, and support.
