Engineers selected Cree Edge™ area luminaries for the employee and patient parking areas for yet another environmentally-friendly option. Designed using the requirements of the WE Energies New Construction Program, the building also features solar panels on the roof that, combined with the energy efficiency of Cree Edge™ luminaires, provide even greater savings.
“Cree® LED luminaires were a natural choice to continue the building’s sustainability on the outside,” said Tim Larsen, Partner, PE, LC, LEED AP, Geiger Engineering. “Sustainability was our focus but the main reasons we selected Cree Edge™ luminaires was for their excellent performance, uniformity, maintainability and efficiency.”
Cree LED luminaires also met the environmental requirements of the center since fixtures do not contain mercury or lead and are made with recyclable materials.
