Lutron installs Quantum Total Light Management at SAP America office

Date Announced: 21 Apr 2010

Total Light Control system is part of a SAP building, designed to LEED Platinum Standard.

Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has installed a Quantum Total Light Management system at SAP America’s new corporate campus expansion building, located in Newtown Square, PA. This building, opened in the summer of 2009, uses Quantum Total Light Management to control the electric light and daylight in the building for total light control. As part of Quantum, SAP installed HyperionTM Solar Adaptive shading.

Hyperion is an automated shading system that works to increase comfort and productivity while maximizing the energy saving potential of daylight harvesting based on the sun’s postion. ”SAP is all about providing our staff with the best possible working conditions. We needed to control the interior light with a system that would not block views, be distracting, or affect productivity. That’s what Lutron delivered,” says Brian Barrett, Senior Project Manager for SAP North America.

Energy efficiency and cost-savings are also a key focus for SAP. According to Barrett, “SAP has seen a dramatic reduction in energy use and as a result, huge cost savings. We’re using 250 kilowatts of total power, which amounts to about 1.1 kilowatt per square foot. By industry standards, that’s extremely low.” The new building is on the 110-acre campus of SAP North America and features a floor-to-ceiling glass exterior and an open-space plan that takes maximum advantage of daylight.
