In August 2008, Lighting Design Alliance moved to a custom designed low carbon footprint office. With 100% daylight in working areas, photovoltaic panels and solar hot water panels, active sun tracking skylights and active daylight monitoring systems, daylight fiber-optic systems, electric lighting with full dimming and daylight harvesting capabilities and exterior solar shutters, the building is a testing laboratory to evaluate all of the latest lighting technology in a real world condition. This office has a total lighting power density of 0.1 watts/sq. ft. It is registered for and pursuing LEED certification. We are pursuing multiple patents on the various lighting technologies included in the building. Working in this environment reminds us at all times the benefits of such designs and encourages us to be mindful of the same for the other projects we design.
