Integrated Design

From HVAC and lighting controls to secondary windows, there are many solutions for an efficient commercial building. Knowing how to integrate those solutions so they work together in an energy-efficient system may mean saving time and money. Whether it’s a retrofit or new commercial project, learn how to apply an integrated design.

Quick Jumps

  • Lighting

    Advanced lighting starts with control. Discover how commercial building lighting design and modern technologies can combine to affect your budget, market differentiation, aesthetics, and tenant comfort.

  • LLLC: The Future of Efficient Lighting

    Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) take energy efficient LEDs to the next level by applying control. With lighting control, owners and managers can tailor lighting systems to maximize energy use, optimize tenant comfort, and integrate additional building energy efficient systems for overall improved operational performance.

  • HVAC

    Better comfort and energy costs start with the right HVAC. Understand how heating, cooling and airflow all directly contribute to the energy efficiency and tenant comfort of your commercial building.

  • Very High Efficiency Dedicated Outside Air Systems

    Dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) separate heating and cooling from the ventilation system to allow for optimal control of each of these critical building functions. Building on the DOAS concept, a very high efficiency DOAS includes heat recovery ventilation and focuses on increased equipment efficiency and optimized system design. When compared to a code-minimum system upgrade, very high efficiency DOAS can reduce commercial building energy use by an average of 36%, and HVAC energy use by an average of 65%.
