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.
