Pyxis Industries receives FUHSD performing arts center lighting contract


Last updated 4/28/2021 at 2:30pm

Pyxis Industries Inc. was awarded the Fallbrook Union High School District contract to provide new lighting for the Fallbrook High School performing arts center.

A 5-0 FUHSD board vote, April 12, awarded Pyxis the contract for the Wildomar company’s bid of $292,750.

The school district currently spends approximately $93,219 annually on lighting fixtures. District staff calculated that if the existing lighting fixtures are replaced with light emitting diode illumination the annual savings would be $22,230. The savings are based not only on power consumption but also the repair costs of the existing lights, replacement of bulbs and the labor to maintain the lights.

The Feb. 8 FUHSD board meeting included approval of a formal bid request to replace the lighting in the performing arts center. A notice to potential bidders was issued Feb. 15. Bids were opened March 24, and two bids were received. San Diego Stage and Lighting Supply submitted a bid of $340,923.35.
