Retail lighting is intriguing and at the same time interesting. The various combinations to achieve the required lighting effect vary from store to store. The use of conventional lighting in retail has already been seen and studied and hence appreciated in the lighting market industry. It has no doubt proved to be successful. But change for the good is always accepted by the consumers. Hence the change from conventional to LED has been growing from few years, with its remarkable results. Usage of LED has indeed become popular among the retail industry because of its known advantages. One such attempt was made in this project to convert the conventional lighting system to LED lighting system. The main objective was not just to replace the existing lighting system with LED one stands comparable with the conventional one by giving required light output and uniformity at the same time proving itself with an impressive return of investment. Hence the project work started first with the walk through audit of the store of four floors which included a lighting audit of the same. Next step involved taking up a small demo section for the lighting design and installation. After the approval of the demo section from the authorities of the store next step was to do the lighting design for the entire four floors and provide the results at the earliest. Once it was done next step involved the making of summary and bill of quantity floor wise and arriving at the final offer along with the payback calculation.
