Falcon Engineering designed and administered the contracts for multiple phases of lighting and lighting control upgrades to the current high school. Existing luminaires were fluorescent lamps (347V) and the lighting controls were primarily local switch controls with some local occupancy sensors.
The lighting upgrade includes replacing all luminaires with LED and transitioning all of the circuitry to feed the luminaires with 120V. Luminaire types were revised to optimize the lighting in specific spaces depending on the user needs and a lighting control system was installed to optimize energy savings.
In spaces such as the gymnasium, the number of fixtures was able to be reduced while increasing the lighting levels at the playing surface. The addressable lighting control system allows the users to select specific scenes (practice/competition/ assemblies). The central lighting control system also allows the school district energy manager to control the maximum output of each luminaire and set occupancy or time based controls to optimize the energy savings.
