Administrative Areas

Most administrative spaces are over-lit, leading to wasted energy usage. But over-lit spaces can also affect the productivity of employees. Too much daylight or electric light can make even the most fundamental tasks, such as computer work, uncomfortable and difficult to perform.

By incorporating lighting based on task performance and providing personal control of lighting and window shades, administrative and office spaces can realize measurable effects on employee productivity and motivation. In addition, most people typically dim the lights when given personal control, further increasing energy savings. Light control solutions like EcoSystem automatically dims electric light to maximize available daylight, and provides personal control so individuals are able to adjust the light in their space. For additional daylight, Sivoia QS shading solutions reduce heat gain and harsh glare, further contributing to a more productive and efficient work environment

While optimizing daylight and electric light saves energy and creates a productive, comfortable environment, it also reduces maintenance costs. Dimming extends lamp life, and since dimming generates less heat compared to standard switching, it also reduces the demand on HVAC systems. Light controls can reduce the cost to reconfigure space, whether for different events or new layouts. Light control systems, such as Quantum, can also report on energy usage and savings to manage costs down. Lutron has a variety of solutions to improve the quality and efficiency of the work environment.
