Gymnasiums take up a large footprint on a campus or district. They typically serve as multi-purpose spaces to accommodate a variety of uses such as sporting events, exercise classes, intramural sports, commencement ceremonies, concerts, and other special events. Lutron lighting control plays a critical role in enabling flexibility of the space and ensuring maximum asset utilization.

Suggested Solution:

Stairwells & Corridors

Stairwells and corridors are sometimes left unoccupied for hours at a time, but need to be well-lit when someone enters the space. The Lutron PowPak stairwell fixture keeps the lights on at a dim level to meet local codes, and brightens the lights when the stairwell is occupied, providing a safe path of light. Using these strategies, the fixture can save over 80% of lighting energy usage and meet building codes and standards.

Administrative Offices

Modern office spaces must be designed to increase both energy efficiency and employee productivity. Lutron offers systems that automatically and comfortably adjust lighting and shading to efficiently balance electric light and available daylight. These systems also provide personal control, allowing individuals to set lighting for any work-related activity. Occupancy and vacancy sensors can also be integrated to turn lights off when a space is unoccupied.
