OK, so I am not convinced that it's the bulbs.  Maybe it 
is.  Obviously I can't tell from here.  But two light fixtures both 
not working make me suspect that there is a switch or breaker or 
something that you don't know about.  For "commercial-esque" 
fixtures, they may be mercury or sodium vapor.  They may not come on 
instantly.  There may also be a photo sensor, so make sure you are 
doing your testing after dark.  It would piss me off to hire someone 
or rent equipment only to find that I didn't have the right switch turned on.
