Weatherspoon & Williams is excited to report the successful completion of the City of Harrisburg LED Street Lighting Conversion Project.
This project provided community involvement along with business development in Harrisburg.
We thank the Mayor’s office for the strong support of minority participation in this project.
Pictured above, Weatherspoon and Williams assisted in traffic control on this project. The logistics of changing out 6000 street lights from the old cobra-head style to the new LED lighting was a challenge that was gracefully handled.
The quality control process of assessing that each light was functioning prior to ship date was accomplished in our small parts warehouse.
WWLLC saved the municipality of Harrisburg time and money by feeding the electrical installer on a daily basis; this is an example of WWLLC’s well-orchestrated material chain management team meeting deadlines and budgets.
The recycling of the old cobra-head was an ongoing daily function; as shown, WWLLC disassembles all 6000 old lights and manifests those materials so they can be recycled.
Pictured above is an old Cobra-head light fixture, as you can see the recycling was difficult in that WWLLC had to contest with fixtures that have been in place over 60 years.
Keeping a daily inventory was facilitated and required by WWLLC’s project management. WWLLC managed the cost saving of the overall project; it was accomplished by extreme coordination and on-time scheduling.
Receiving and accountability was mandatory in such a large LED changeout. At any one time, WWLLC would have thousands of LED light fixtures which were traceable and accountable for our customer.
Harrisburg Mayor, Mayor Papenfuse, played a major role in insuring that thte city of Harrisburg gave opportunities to minority owned companies such as WWLLC.
