Shore Towers, a 23-story luxury waterfront condominium built in 1989, sought turnkey energy efficiency solutions to be installed in this 409-unit building with minimal inconvenience to residents.

Installed across the 300,000 square foot property, thelighting efficiency solutionsare estimated to lower annual energy use in kWh by 161,235. Over 27,000 of those hours are saved due to occupancy sensors and daylight savings controls. The aesthetic elements of this build included installing lights in concrete ceilings as well as attention to fixture types, light levels and color temperature. Fairbanks Energy Services retrofitted or replaced fixtures and controls on 23 floors, all three stairwells, the gym and garages among other locations in the building.
