Responsible Workspace Using Acuity Brands Lighting and Controls Solutions

DPR Construction installs highly controllable smart and simple lighting solutions to help meet requirements for LEED Gold certification.

ATLANTA - DPR Construction, one of the largest general contracting and construction firms in the U.S, renovated 100 percent of its new occupied office space in Newport Beach, Calf. with LED lighting and digital lighting controls solutions from Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI). DPR Construction's goals for the renovation were to reduce energy consumption, visually enhance its open and collaborative workspace and meet the criteria to become LEED® Gold certified.

DPR Construction specified multiple lighting and controls products from Acuity Brands®. These products included Lithonia Lighting® VT Series LED luminaires with integrated nLight® technology from Acuity Brands, which use nLight® enabled lighting controls from Sensor Switch®. These fixtures with integrated controls were installed above workstations in its open office spaces. Mark Architectural Lighting(TM) Slot fixtures were installed in its "innovation" room, to bring architectural appeal to a unique, non-traditional space. Additionally, EVO® A Series LED downlights from Gotham® were installed throughout hallways, bathrooms, labs and showers. Occupancy sensors from Sensor Switch were also installed in all areas to help meet California Title 24 building energy efficiency standards.

As a way to further enhance the energy savings provided by the LED luminaires, DPR Construction specified the nLight Virtual WallPod(TM) application from Sensor Switch, which allows employees to use their iPhone® or iPad® mobile device or desktop computer to individually control their personal workspace lighting. "Our employees have different needs - one may be looking at drawings, while the other is working on a computer - so we wanted to make workstations functional and flexible for whatever task they may be completing," said Jason King of DPR Construction. "Through the nLight Virtual WallPod application, every end user has dimming capabilities at his or her desk through an iPhone or the task bar of a computer."

"As one of the country's leading general contractors, with a focus on sustainable projects, DPR Construction needed a workspace that shows that they practice what they preach," said Dave Ranieri, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and General Manager, Indoor Lighting. "The integration of high performance LED lighting with a robust digital controls platform gives DPR Construction a smart and simple way to reach their energy saving goals, while putting their core values of doing what is right for employees, customers and the industry into practice as a company."
