Shaflik has been designing roadway lighting for municipalities and the private sector for over 40 years. We have designed and construction managed over 5000 roadway lighting projects throughout British Columbia including highways, freeways and municipal roads. Shaflik has undertaken design along major corridors such as the Trans Canada Highway, the Coquihalla Highway, and the Vancouver Island Highway . We have also completed several roadway lighting designs in the Province of Alberta for the City of Calgary, Atco Electric, Alberta Transportation and the private sector.
Shaflik is experienced in all forms of roadway lighting design from a simple street lighting project to an extensive downtown beatification project. We utilize the latest standards and technology to perform all aspects of roadway lighting including lighting calculation and drawing presentation. This work has been undertaken for both the Provincial and Municipal governments as well as the Private Sector.
In recent years many jurisdictions have become increasingly concerned with the ongoing costs of the operations of their roadway lighting, mainly electrical energy consumption. As such, new standards and engineering design practices have been developed across North America in order to try to reduce the lighting that may be unnecessary. Shaflik has been involved in the research and development of these new engineering practices with such organizations as the Transportation Association on Canada (TAC) and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). Shaflik has also been involved in the application of these principles in such places as the City of Calgary (the award winning EnviroSmart Street Light Retrofit) and with the BC Ministry of Transportation and Parks Canada.
Shaflik is an active sitting member of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America Roadway Lighting Committee. This society is the main engineering standards body in North America for the research and development of lighting engineering standard practices. Shaflik sits on the sub-committees for Tunnel Lighting and Obtrusive Light (Light Pollution).
Shaflik has produced a technical paper which analyses the effects of light pollution as produced by roadway lighting systems and provides recommendations on efficient design and mitigation methods. This technical paper is available on the International Dark-Sky Association website at www.darksky.org.
BRIDGE AND TUNNEL LIGHTING
Shaflik has been designing lighting for bridges and tunnels for 30years and has undertaken the lighting design on several of the major bridge structures and roadway tunnels in the Province of British Columbia. This work has been undertaken for both the Provincial and Federal governments. Shaflik has recently completed the designs for the lighting of the Federal snow shed in Glacier National Park. You can find more detailed project information in the project section of our web page.
Shaflik has researched and designed communications systems for various projects and was part of the team designing the SONET (synchronous optical network) system for the Lower Mainland Traffic Management Program.
