There are probably recommended guidelines for illumination in parking lots. Specialist says light intensity (you’ll have to convert foot candles to lumens taking into account the height, distance, and spacing.
According to the website razorlux.com, the minimum recommended light intensity is 1 foot-candle. In areas where there is potential damage to vehicles, 2 foot-candles is recommended. These standards are averages although no area in the parking lot should have less than a quarter of the average lamination.
Some areas of the parking lot loading zones, entrances, exits and even marketing signs can be lighted to an illumination of 5 foot-candles or more.
