Montréal-based audiovisual company, Attraction, moved into its new 4924 m2 (53,000 sf) collaborative workspace. Previously divided by two different floors, they left their closed offices behind to join together in a shared single floor space.
The online retail boom (and the corresponding change in consumer delivery time expectations) has forced warehouses, distribution centres, and production facilities to operate at an ever-increasing pace. Fortunately, recent technological improvements in supply chain equipment have allowed industrial facilities to keep up with this demand, while maintaining safety and efficiency.
In addition to illuminating office spaces with high quality and energy efficient light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires, connected lighting with Power over Ethernet (PoE) collects data to inform owners of maintenance requests, occupancy trends, and requests for temperature control.
Many classrooms have abandoned the traditional eyes-front configuration to create more opportunities for collaborative learning. Design professionals must now evaluate multiple options to optimize their design while working with tight facility budgets.
University of British Columbia (UBC) Museum of Anthropology (AES Engineering) and Emily Carr University of Arts and Design (WSP Lighting Studio) are the recipients of the Awards of Excellence in the 2018 Vision Awards.
The Royal University Hospital (RUH) provides acute-care services for Saskatoon . Working with a building technology and energy service company (ESCO), it has invested $13.6 million to provide critical facility upgrades expected to save $1.4 million annually, along with providing a healthier environment both inside the hospital and in the larger community. Find out what was changed.
The lighting industry has recently been the site of substantial change, as demand for intelligent light-emitting diode (LED) systems and controls is beginning to transform workspaces. Despite the benefits (e.g. cost-effectiveness and compatibility with wired and wireless controls) this advancement brings, it is creating an education gap among industry professionals.
Navigant Research recently released a report stating global unit shipments of light-emitting diode (LED) lamps and luminaires are expected to total 10.7 billion from 2014 through 2023. This statistic rings true in the Canadian market where most areas of the country are actively implementing LED streetlight programs or incentives.
