Fun with mock-ups!

Proposed entry sign light to help patrons identify and locate the location
 ALD is currently in the process of adding some sparkle to the exterior of the American Locomotive Building in downtown Providence. The building is a historic industrial complex located on a 17.5 acre site along the Woonasquatucket River. Eight historic buildings were adapted for housing, commercial, and retail space back in 2010.

 The goal of this new project is to increase the prominence of the building at night. We recently went over to the building with functional mock-ups of our lighting ideas to demonstrate to the clients how the ideas would actually look once installed. The demonstration helped us collaborate with the client in choosing the ideas that would work best for the project. All of the proposed fixtures are LEDs.
