Project Description

With experience measuring various community catalysts, Boyette conducted an impact evaluation and analysis for Philips Lighting to uncover the impact lighting projects have on significant American landmarks. In addition to quantifying the economic impact of each lighting installation, the evaluation included an examination of social and cultural contributions impacting community engagement, economic development, health and wellness, media coverage, partnerships, sustainability and tourism.

Philips Lighting frequently partners with government organizations and non-profit groups to incorporate unique and effective lighting products into infrastructure and facilities, resulting in tangible and meaningful contributions to the public realm. These lighting installations serve much more than a utilitarian purpose of providing light. In many cases, they spark increased tourism, economic development, community pride and neighborhood revitalization.

To better understand the potential comprehensive impact of these lighting projects, Philips Lighting engaged Boyette Strategic Advisors to conduct an impact evaluation and analysis of a sampling of diverse installations.
