Lightenco worked with one of Canada’s largest hotels, Sheraton Centre Toronto and Marriott Canada to complete a sizeable turnkey lighting retrofit. Sheraton Centre’s goal was to reduce its carbon footprint, reduce energy and maintenance costs and to enhance safety and guest experience via the lighting retrofit. In total over 3000 T8 fluorescent lamps running at 32W per lamp were replaced with maintenance free 12W LED tubes in back of house spaces throughout the hotel and approximately 5500 T5 fluorescent lamps running at 39W were replaced with 15W LED tubes in guest room mirrors.
Lightenco worked with Minto Group to complete a full conversion of the parking garage at Minto Yorkville in Toronto. This involved changing older fixtures with fluorescent ballasts to brand new LED vapour tights incorporating motion sensing technology to take energy savings to the max. The new fixtures are rated for 100,000 hours, which is over 10 years if operated 24/7! Additionally, the new fixtures are extremely robust rated IP66 for strong jets of water avoiding long term issues with corrosion / fixture failure. The garage is brighter, safer and more comfortable for residents. All this combined with a reduced impact on Minto’s carbon footprint lead to a win-win-win and then some.
Working in very cold spaces? Lightenco and LEDs do that very well! Confederation Freezers in Brampton involved working in very cold temperatures to replace nearly 400 older sodium / halide high bay fixtures operating at 400W with brand new LED high bay units running at 130W. The new LED high bays, rated for 100,000 hours and to operate in up to -40C temperatures incorporated occupancy sensors to dim the units down when no one is working in the area to maximize energy savings and Confederations Freezers’ carbon footprint. The project also included replacing approximately 60 outdoor lights with brand new LED fixtures. Overall the project created brighter, safer, more productive workspaces inside and out!
