Located in the heart of Washington DC, the property at One Thomas Circle is a mixed-use commercial office space built in 1981. The building is twelve stories high, with space totaling 229,663 square feet, and is managed by Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL).

The Opportunity

JLL desired to convert this LEED Gold Certified building from fluorescent to LED and capture maximum savings by installing sensors on each floor. JLL was in need of assistance with product selection and although they knew what they wanted, JLL was apprehensive about including the dimming feature in all lights. JLL selected two areas of focus, the building’s garage and stairwells, and contacted Bay Lighting for assistance.

Bay Lighting Solution

Samples were installed to ensure customer satisfaction with the overall appearance and light levels of each application. The samples allowed the customer to see dimming first hand and they were also able to gauge how their tenants reacted to the lighting controls.

The Benefits

After seeing fixtures in use, all constituents were delighted with the look and performance. In the end, the property at One Thomas Circle is reaping energy savings and has lighting that the owners can be proud of and the tenants will enjoy.

    The stairwells were converted from 2-lamp fluorescent T8 fixtures to step-dim LED fixtures that come on one at a time when motion is detected. The sensor has adjustable sensitivity levels, dimming levels, and hold times to suit a variety of needs.
    The building at One Thomas Circle updated stairwell and garage lighting to LED integrated systems.

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

    There are many building codes, electrical codes, and emergency standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local regulations, and others that provide lighting guidelines and requirements for commercial and similar properties. These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
