The Lighting Control Innovation Award was created in 2011 as part of the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Illumination Awards program, which recognizes professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design. LCA is proud to sponsor the Lighting Control Innovation Award, which recognizes projects that exemplify the effective application of lighting controls in nonresidential spaces.
This month, we will explore the role that a connected lighting control solution plays in an engineering head office. Lighting and control design by Sunny Ghataurah, Doug McMillan and Brad Ou-Yang, Lighting Designers with Applied Engineering Solutions. Photography by Ema Peter. Lighting controls by Elan and Lutron Electronics.
Main-lobby luminaires create the feel of a Fairmont hotel using high-mounted dimmable LED, 3000-lumen, white pendants that match the ceiling. 2x18W LED adjustable/recessed downlights providing higher illumination for the reception desk, with luminaire control connected via smartphone, desktop/TV app and security system.
A rich/warm/residential/hotel feel for the boardroom is achieved via 2x18W recessed/adjustable LED downlights with internally lit 90W LED indirect pendants, providing reduced glare and better vertical illumination for videoconferencing.
Luminaire control is connected via smartphone, desktop/TV app and security system. The boardroom has an additional in-room wall mounted controller with scene switch that integrates lighting, AV, blinds and fireplace Luminaire control connected via smartphone, desktop/TV app and security system.
The project was designed in October 2012 to ASHRAE 90.1-2010, although local code was ASHRAE 90.1-2007; enclosed spaces have dimming luminaires integrated with vacancy sensors, bathrooms have occupancy sensors, and all lighting is controlled via smartphone and security system. The majority of luminaires are OFF during the day.
