The City of Miami Beach desired to develop an open platform street lighting network capable of integrating other smart city services to enhance energy conservation, public safety and economic development.

Our team provided professional services for the design, build, operations and maintenance for this transformational project. In order to achieve energy efficiency and lay the groundwork for smart city platform capability, the project required the conversion of approximately 9,000 city lights to an LED smart platform and was initiated with an overall Smart City LED Street Lighting Conversion Master Plan.

As a part of the Phase I: Inventory, Master Plan, and Design, our team performed an urban lighting inventory analysis, developed citywide lighting standards, and established an urban lighting approach and design to include a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMSS), which would achieve energy operational efficiencies. We also provided preliminary upgrade plan and construction plans for architectural and street lighting design upgrades as a part of the initial phase.

Phase 2 will include the City deciding on a financial plan (public-private-partnership, City-funded or a hybrid model), building, operating and then maintaining the system. The smart LED system will interface with the city’s smart parking; traffic management; emergency response; air quality and sound sensors; electric vehicle charging stations; security cameras; and citizen engagement platforms.
