Lighting design illuminates educators’ HQ

July 20, 2011 |

An HLB Lighting Design team worked with architecture firm HOK to bring light to the 409,000-sf, $266 million Sacramento headquarters for the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, known as CalSTRS. New York City-based HLB’s lighting goals for the 13-story office tower included ample access to daylighting (90% of the building’s 1,250 workstations receive natural light), dimmable, programmable direct and indirect lighting, and concealed ambient LED lighting. The building earned LEED Gold and is expected to use 12% less energy than a comparable building its size, which would save the organization more than $130,000 on annual energy bills.
