The Essendon Football Club would be pleased to provide a testimonial for the works undertaken at Windy Hill.


We recently identified that the Windy Hill playing oval did not meet minimum lighting levels to train on

Best Practices Lighting provided us an end to end service with a detailed lighting level report for the whole oval that was clear and easy to understand and offered us a number of solutions that would meet our current budget allowances and meet all our OHS obligations and would  then  allow training to resume along with the ability for future upgrades

The works were completed in a very timely manner.  

Best Practices Lighting made themselves available at short notice for a number of site meetings.

This project was funded by 2 committees which both had different overall objectives. Best Practice Lighting took on all the feedback and provided a great outcome that  met all our requirements

I would not hesitate to recommended Best Practices lighting

BPL has recently completed an upgrade of  our corridor lamps and fittings (1700 of ) over 23 hotel  floors.  Despite using 1/3rd of the power of the previous lamps, they have more than delivered the required performance and within specification. This was a sizeable project and it was important that it was conducted in a professional and efficient manner – BPL delivered on both fronts


BPL is a relatively new supplier to the Grand Hyatt, but has already proved to be able to deliver the required solutions in a prompt and efficient manner and at competitive rates.  These solutions have been class leading in terms of efficiency in our conversion to LED where others struggled to come close.  BPL has also been able to supply all our traditional lighting requirements.


Andrew Gowan, the proprietor of BPL has also demonstrated a keen eye for not only technical detail, but also the importance in delivering new LED products in accordance with delivering the ambience so valued in our luxury hotel.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Best Practice Lighting as a preferred supplier to any business, as we continue to partner with them on our next lighting project.

Dear Andrew,


The Committee of Management and the Building Management of Balencea would like to acknowledge and thank you for your assistance during our recent planned power outage.

The battery powered temporary lighting you were able to deliver at short notice and at no charge was extremely helpful providing emergency lighting to our darkened hallways and stairwells, making it much safer for our residents during the 8 hour blackout. This spirit of cooperation has reinforced why Best Practice Lighting is our longstanding supplier of choice and valued partner for all our lighting needs.

Kind Regards,

Harry Bayer

Balencea Building Manager

School Council President

Sandringham College

 I write on behalf of the Sandringham College School Council to thank you for all your help with our recent upgrade to LED lighting across the College.
Your input and advice was appreciated during the walkthroughs and consultation phase. We were particularly impressed with the extra effort you put in to ensure that the materials arrived on time and the work was completed during the school holiday period, therefore minimising disruption to both staff and students.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your service to other schools who may be considering upgrading to LED lighting.

Freshwater Place residential building is a premium apartment building in Melbourne and we are always searching for the latest products to save energy and running cost. We employed Best Practice Lighting to replace all our old Halogen globes with LED equivalents and all fluorescent tubes in the 9 levels car park with LED motion sensors tubes. We chose Best Practice Lighting after talking to other building and facility managers who told us they were professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.  At all times they ensured that the impact on residents and businesses was minimal.  Andrew Gowan the owner is well informed about the latest products on the market and where they can be used.

RDA Brakes recently approached Andrew at Best Practice lighting to consult on a number of customised warehouse LED lighting opportunities first to reduce our power running costs but mainly to increase our internal lighting within our new internal warehouse fit out at one of our warehouse buildings which is highly customised and designed to increase stock capacity which required customised fitment of lighting high to the internal roof line and fitted with various power saving features included power down and then off if no motion occurs within a set time which is personally timed by us to further reduce power costs if lighting is not required within each roof light, aisle or even within the entire internal building which will also preserve and extend the life of each lamp and coverts to lower maintenance and running costs, and we also do not need to turn the lights switch to the off position ever again.

Andrew is very passionate with LED lighting designs and fitment options to suit each project, Andrew is very hands on throughout the project from start to the finished fit out which was completed on time and covered with a Best Practise Lighting warranty we highly recommend Best Practice Lighting and Andrews passionate personal service.

Portfolio Manager

Dip of Mgt (Strata)


We are the leading manager of strata schemes in Australia. As a manager based in Melbourne, I have worked together with Andrew Gowan for more than two years now. 
During this time, Best Practice Lighting has proven to consistently deliver outstanding service, supporting our endeavours to achieve energy efficiency improvements, and therefore substantial cost savings, for many of the larger strata schemes we manage.
Andrew heads up a company that may not always be the cheapest, but definitely provides best value for money. Always up on technology and exclusively providing quality product, Best Practice Lighting has never failed to deliver prompt and attentive service, backing up the few warranty claims that have arisen and achieving outcomes that fully satisfied even demanding clients.
Best Practise Lighting therefore comes highly recommended.

I just wanted to send you an email to let you know how happy we are with the lighting in our new office. 


In such a massive project you where one of the easiest people we dealt with, the stages of the lighting installation happened when you said they would happen and you were a pleasure to deal with at each stage. 


As far as the finished product goes, it looks fabulous, we have all our employees working in very natural comfortable light and our “front of house” areas have lighting that create just the mood we were after, particularly at night when the lights you suggested really give it a “wow” factor.


Moving forward we look forward to another time when we can make use of your professionalism and knowledge, we will be sure to recommend you to anyone we know who requires lighting design and installations.
