The self-described “studio-themed”
“Acuity Brands is proud to continue to be a flagship sponsor to help create schoolhouses in Arizona,” said Tim Hogan, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President for Education Solutions. “Our Smart + Simple Solutions integrate electric lighting, daylighting, and controls to both improve the learning environment and help reduce the overall long-term cost of the structure.”
The 6,000 square-foot “studio-themed”
Acuity Brands provided Lithonia Lighting®, Mark Architectural Lighting™ and Peerless® general indoor ambient luminaires, as well as Gotham® and Winona® Lighting architectural and accent lighting. Lithonia Lighting and Hydrel® outdoor LED solutions enhance visibility for occupants before and after school hours. And, Sunoptics® skylights are integral components of the lighting and daylighting harvesting design strategy.
“The building maximizes functionality and minimizes energy use through Sensor Switch® controls, sensors and switches, enabled by nLight® technology, that integrate the building’s lighting and control operations,”
