We helped Herman Miller design a showroom in which responsible lighting and electricity use are foremost in every visitor’s mind as they tour through a wildly varied collection of the workstations, private offices, conference rooms and amenity spaces that make up today’s workplace. Product display is at the heart of a showroom, and this project immerses visitors in a Convia system that offers highly programmable, easy-to-use controls of electrical zones. our sustainability services worked to enhance the technology: from maximizing daylight harvesting to demonstrate the effectiveness of Convia’s controls to commissioning the showroom’s systems so they operate according to the design standards.SERVICES PROVIDED The design optimizes 80% daylighting in a wideLighting/Daylighting Analysis range of settings—Thermal Comfort Analysis from private offices of occupiedCommissioning to conference rooms, building area from workstations to that is daylit open teaming areas.
