Westfield, the world’s largest retail property group, is committed to making sustainability part of its day-to-day business practices. It’s therefore not surprising that its corporate headquarters is an example of excellence in environmental sustainable design.
Integral to reducing the building’s environmental footprint and achieving world’s best practice in environmental sustainable design was the installation of a Philips Dynalite lighting control system.
It was essential that the lighting architecture would meet the project’s green criteria and complement the environmental design ethos of the building. The client wanted the lighting system to reduce the energy requirement for lighting as well as enhance the working environment by maximizing natural light where possible.
Philips Dynalite specified Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) technology because it delivers increased energy savings, is simple to install and maintain, provides maximum flexibility and control and is easy to modify in the future.
Simple to install and commission, the DALI lighting control system monitors and controls lighting within the office environment, which significantly reduces the use of energy. Energy costs are lowered through daylight harvesting and standard controls such as dimming and occupancy sensors. Rather than depend on staff to turn off the lighting, the intuitive DALI system does it.
The continuous automatic adjustment of the lighting in response to changing ambient light levels provides a constant comfortable light level.
The cutting-edge lighting solution has not only helped Westfield to achieve both a 5-star NABERS Energy rating and a 6-star Green Star rating, but has created a new benchmark for energy savings, occupancy comfort and flexibility. Together with the many energy-efficient building and services designs that have been included in this project, the lighting control system has helped reduce energy consumption by 30 percent.
