How do you know if your project will require the MLO alternate method for compliance?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your project would require the MLO alternate method for compliance.
How DHS Lighting Design Can Help
We can be there for any part of the MLO process. However, the earlier the lighting design is addressed for your project, the better prepared you will be for meeting compliance of the ordinance. When DHS begins Schematic Design on our projects, our concept development begins laying the groundwork for delivering the completed design to the project. As the lighting design continues through Design Development and Construction Documentation, MLO compliance is planned, maintained and completed for submission.
DHS Lighting Design can also help minimize the impact that bid, negotiation and the value engineering processes have on the project. We can also help with approval of luminaire substitutions after the initial submission to Metro Codes and Planning.
DHS Lighting Design recently participated in the Dark Sky Lighting Ordinance webinar with Burkley Allen, Metro Council-at-Large, who was the author of this bill. Danny Streit covered Nashville Metro/Davidson County CODES pertaining to this ordinance as well as the alternate MLO method to the ordinance.

Below we’ve listed a couple of illustrations of the types of calculations DHS Lighting Design performs as well as a sample MLO Compliance document.
DHS Lighting Design performs all necessary calculations and provides complete documentation required for project approval.
Our documentation includes a single page MLO Compliance Report that confirms compliance for all required categories.
