When new construction begins on a structure, tunnel, roadway or any other large project, safe and dependable lighting is always a challenge. Weather conditions, the availability of natural light, the size of the project or tunnel, the time of the year or even the availability of power can be dramatic factors in determining whether or not a job site has adequate lighting. All agree that adequate lighting is necessary for the safety and productivity of the workers, and for the quality of the work to be executed properly.
The challenge for many contractors is the different phases construction sites may transition to throughout the development of a project. As tunnels go deeper and farther away from power sources, the ability to light the work area safely is extremely challenging. The limits of ten-foot string lights can cause problems as the length of the string lights increases deeper into a tunnel create power accessibility issues.
