In its 27th year, the annual awards program continues its tradition of honoring San Diego’s leaders of innovation and groundbreaking new products launched in the last year.
Solatube International’s SkyVault Series received San Diego’s most prestigious honor for technology and life sciences innovation in the sustainability category as the first high-output daylighting system that allows building designers to precisely control the placement of natural light in large volume spaces.
“We’re thrilled to have the Solatube SkyVault Series named as a winner in this prestigious awards program,” said Robert E. Westfall, president of Solatube International. “Our company has a passion for creating innovative products and it’s gratifying to win in the face of such stiff competition.”
Featuring advanced optics and progressive engineering, the SkyVault Series uses modular components that allow designers to choose whether to spread light evenly, enhance light capture, control focus or combine these effects to meet the specific needs of any commercial project.
