Community Maritime Park - City of Pensacola, FL
In April 2009, the Pensacola City Council gave final approval to build the Vince J. Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park. This multi-purpose stadium situated on the downtown Pensacola waterfront is a year-around facility able to host a number of sporting events, festivals, graduations and other similar events.
When it came to site and area lighting, the city wanted an exterior LED luminaire that could deliver on performance and be cost effective.
BUILT FOR PERFORMANCE
MayaLED - MA14SH was chosen because of its ability to fully deliver the potential of LEDs in comparison to other exterior LED luminaires. Due to its superior optical performance, MayaLED post top luminaires could be installed further apart necessitating fewer luminaires, which translated into overall energy savings and lower acquisition costs.
The Appaloosa Branch Library - Scottsdale, AZ
Designed to create a building that reflects a renewed national interest in the environment, and Scottsdale’s commitment to the LEED® program. It was assumed that an environmental statement should go beyond current design trends, must be understandable by the neighbors and, of course, had to still meet the budget.
LEED Gold Certified
ENERGY AND ATMOSPHERE
All systems in the building will undergo enhanced commissioning to assure the City that its new building works as designed. This includes testing of systems, creation of manuals and training of building system operators. The mechanical system design was compared with baseline energy consumption criteria and is, of course, vastly more efficient. Building systems were computer modeled to optimize system selections and design. The analysis is the result of an improved building envelope, more efficient equipment and better coordination of all systems, which produced a building 32% more efficient than a standard building.
Lighting and energy systems are computer controlled and occupancy sensors turn off lights when rooms are unoccupied. Dimming controls also increase room flexibility.
Luminis Kronos Pendant was used throughout the interior of the library space.
