Case Study: Burnaby’s Station Square

Holiday Lights - Burnaby Square Station - Festilight

We have had the pleasure of decorating several properties in the Metrotown area over the past few years, the most notable being Station Square. This new development opened in 2015 just before the busy Christmas shopping season, and they wanted to announce that they were open for business. After demonstrating several colours, our client chose pure-white as the primary colour (as opposed to warm-white), which is a great option that provides a wintery and lively feel. There is no “blue-ish” shade in our “pure-white”, so it is very pleasant to look at. To compliment Station Square’s brand, FestiLight added red accent colours, which also contributed to the Christmassy look.

Flexible Holiday Lights

Our client was concerned with damaging the new flashing on the roofline and glass awnings, so we used a combination of non-invasive plastic clips and magnetic clips that quickly and easily attach to the surface. These clips also keep the bulbs straight and provide a clean and professional look. With numerous small awnings of various sizes, we cut the lengths of socket wire so the strings fit the awnings perfectly.

Station Square’s budget was limited in the first year due to the new construction, so we created a 2-year plan to grow the display each season. The first year saw rooflines, awnings, and some trees tastefully decorated.  In the second year, we decorated additional trees, added more lights to existing trees (the trees grew very quickly!) and installed stunning snowfall lights overhead the parking lot. This captivating look not only impressed shoppers, but residents in neighbouring apartment buildings loved them too!

Station Square is a perfect example of how decorating with Christmas lights is flexible in both design and budget. We can make decorating small and large properties an affordable and effective way to display the holiday spirit.

FestiLight Client’s Testimonial

“The holiday lights installed by FestiLight have brought a lot of positive attention for Station Square. We have neighbouring condo residents that are contacting us thanking us for the beautiful holiday display to look at out their windows, as well as pedestrians just passing through contacting us with positive comments. The retail tenants at station square have all been appreciative of the holiday lights as it sets them apart for neighbouring stores or shopping centres in the area. Dealing with FestiLight has been a very positive experience as they are very knowledgeable in their field and flexible with what can be done each season. When things come up they always deal with it in a cool respectful manner. We have nothing but positive things to say about the two years we have been working with FestiLight at Station Square.”
