exit-84K-SIGN(CNSNews.com) – Days before the government “shutdown” started, the Air Force contracted for an $84,380 upgrade on its ‘Exit’ signs for the Joint Base Charleston-Weapons Station in Goose Creek, S.C. According to the Statement of Work, “approximately 973 existing wall/ceiling mounted exit lighting signs” will be removed and replaced with “0.92 Watt LED lighting signs.”

The new exit signs were marked off in the “Green Products Determination Form“, which requires new lighting equipment to meet Energy Star requirements.

The Youth Center, Recreation Center, Sports Center and Bowling Center are among the many buildings slated to receive upgrades to their exit signs under the Sept. 27 contract with M2W Construction Inc. of Mississippi.

Pictures of some the older signs due to be replaced were taken by the Air Force and are available for viewing here.

The statement of work states that the new replacement signs “will be energy efficient 0.92 watt fixtures and shall satisfy the Buy American Act.”
