Convention Center Parking Facility – Philadelphia, PA
In a great location that serves the Pennsylvania Convention Center, a 10-story parking garage was built with all LED lighting and became a “Green” Garage. Not only is all their lighting LED, but they also have a green roof over retail space and electric car charging parking spaces. The Lighting Designer selected LSI based on its fixtures (XPG3, XAM3 & XPWS3) that minimize glare, but allow for great uniformity. To meet IES recommendations, the entry drive of the garage has a minimum measured illuminance of 50 Fc during the day. At night, the center row of fixtures turn off completely, and every other fixture dims to 50%. Based on lighting calculations, the garage has an average illuminance of 5.7Fc – the owner’s goal was to make sure it was above 5Fc, with an average/minimum uniformity of 2.11. The LED fixtures install in a snap and with up to a 100,000 hour expected life they are virtually maintenance-free.
