Celebrating Earth Day with Natural Light

 Celebrating Earth Day with Innovative Daylighting Solutions

By reducing the need for electric lighting in buildings, daylighting can help businesses reduce energy consumption, lower carbon emissions and improve the health and wellbeing of the occupants within.

Both Solatube International and Kingspan Light + Air have a long history of providing high-quality daylighting solutions to businesses of all sizes. By using the latest technology and materials, our products have been used in numerous LEED certified projects.

One example of Solatube International’s success in commercial daylighting can be seen in the installation at Ecofibre’s North American headquarters. By incorporating 66 Solatube TDDs, the project achieved a 58% reduction in total energy consumption. As a result, the building received LEEDv4 Platinum Certification, making it the first hemp distribution facility in the United States to achieve the prestigious distinction.

Daylighting designs can also honor the earth’s beauty in unique ways. Kingspan Light + Air illustrates this in the daylighting installation at Prebys Plaza, a 12,875 square-foot, open-air dining plaza at The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park in San Diego. The translucent wall systems from Kingspan Light + Air allowed the designers to incorporate images of trees that had been removed from the site into the dining pavilions and the box office structures. The graphics create compelling imagery that can be enjoyed both day and night. The result is a captivating aesthetic that harmonizes the park’s-built environment with the natural landscape.
