Although LEED points aren’t directly awarded based on lighting fixtures themselves, it most significantly relates to energy output/reduction. This is where a·light comes in. We design specifically toward LEED goals of decreased watts per square foot. Because we utilize T5 fluorescent and LED lamping in all our fixtures as a standard, our products are highly assistive in helping attain LEED points.
- Key example : Intuit Regional Headquarters : LEED Gold
- a·light luminaires were predominant in the office and hallway spaces of this large complex. With the luminaires spaced properly, the use of a single T5HO lamp in each fixture achieved as low as 0.76 watts per square foot while maintaining IESNA RP1-04 recommended footcandle & candela levels, as well as cut-off angles for VDT.
- Current design strategies are targeting .9 to 1.1 watts per sq ft. based on the old T8 model. The AEDG, Advanced Energy Design Guide - Small Office 90.1-1999 (used as a baseline in LEED credits) recommends what they call “LPD” or “Lighting Power Density” of .9 watts per sq.ft. for small office buildings.
- Why not apply the T5HO new technology and achieve .75 or less watts per sq ft? Contact us. We’ll show you how to achieve your LEED goals…
