WearGuard-Crest, a division of ARAMARK, set an ambitious goal: to replace all the lighting fixtures throughout 280,000 square feet of office, manufacturing, and retail space at its headquarters in Norwell, Massachusetts, just south of Boston. Furthermore, the company wanted the project to pay for itself in energy savings. J&R Wiring, Inc., took up the challenge. After researching the most advanced lighting control systems on the market today, J&R Wiring identified the one technology with the most powerful return on investment (ROI)—DCL® (Demand Control Lighting) from Universal Lighting Technologies.
Leviton Manufacturing Company’s wireless lighting control products were chosen by Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine as one of the Best Products of the Year. The high-performance occupancy sensors combine Leviton’s legendary styling and superior performance features with reliable wireless technology. The result is a “green building product” that offers significant energy-savings and reduced installation costs for both retrofit and new construction applications.
