Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc. is starting the year on a high note with the announcement of its new corporate headquarters at 51 Century Blvd., Suite 230 in Nashville, Tennessee. Not only does the new building better position the company for growth, but it also comes newly equipped with innovative and energy-efficient lighting incorporated throughout the office, including updated meeting room technology for greater capabilities to network with customers.
“Universal Lighting has seen significant growth over the past few years since we joined the Panasonic family,” said Chris Holstein, Vice President of Marketing. “We’re excited to start the next chapter in our company’s future as we make the move to a new home where the lighting technology reflects the very products that have led to our success.”
The new corporate office positions the company for greater growth and includes leading designs and technologies from all members of the Panasonic Lighting Americas group.
LED technologies in the facility include LED downlights that use EVERLINE LED Drivers and Chip on Board LED Modules with 0–10V dimming controls. Existing recessed troffer lighting fixtures were upgraded with LED retrofit kits and EVERLINE linear LED modules to provide high efficiency lighting with high quality color and an extremely long rated life while being dimmable. DCL control technology allows the LED drivers to receive communications over the power line, providing energy management load shedding capabilities.
Universal Lighting’s new headquarters incorporates leading fluorescent technologies, including DEMANDflex ballasts, as well as six-lamp T8 fixtures installed throughout the unique and innovative office space. The lighting system also utilizes VariPRO 0–10V dimming in the main entry. Both technologies are incorporated with a Dialog Control System and occupancy sensors from Panasonic’s Douglas Lighting Controls for local zone control, manual overrides and facility scheduling.
