America’s one of the most innovative and illuminating hospital facilities, Building for Transformative Medicine located at Brigham and Women’s Hospital features advanced lightning focused on occupant experience and energy savings. ESS Lighting & Controls and Legrand have worked in close collaboration with the hospital to design its lighting strategies, work on maintenance solutions and construction, and formulate its green design. The facility hopes to achieve the coveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.

ESS Lighting & Controls and Legrand Share Office to Meet Lighting Goals

The authorities of the Building for Transformative Medicine wanted ESS Lighting & Controls and Legrand to work with chief vendors and their construction team for meeting some vital objectives. The requirements included fulfilling building and energy code standards, enabling access to natural light, using time of day controls and daylight harvesting for lengthening energy savings, and integrating lighting controls with other systems. In order to meet the lighting design goals, Legrand offered its best solutions, viz. Lighting Control and Automation Panel (LCAP) and Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM).

Building for Transformative Medicine Differs from Regular Facilities

Spread across a 380,000 square feet of program space, the 14-story Building for Transformative Medicine opened doors late in 2016. The state-of-the-art facility is working speedily toward the translation of science into its clinical setting amidst an ambiance that fosters a robust exchange of ideas, productivity, and creativity. However, currently, the lighting controls project is concentrated on specific spaces of the building, including gathering areas, lounges, corridors, hallways, training and education rooms, cafes, and restaurants. Nonetheless, the facility is soon expected to be on every patient’s mind as it proves its point for being one of the most innovative healthcare projects in the U.S.
