Santa Ana City Hall Tower on 20 Civic Center Plaza

Case Study / June 1, 2021 / Building Innovation

The City Hall building in Santa Ana sought to improve their indoor environment and save on energy costs with automated shades, upgraded lighting fixtures and networked lighting controls. The project updated the existing T8 lamps to LEDs and controlled the lighting with the existing Daintree system, resulting in over 40% lighting energy savings. The solar-powered automated shades by Rollease Acmeda provided operator pre-settings for daylight responsiveness and occupant customization for glare and heat control. The retrofit covered over 2400 light fixtures and 481 windows in this 127,000 square foot office building.
