Energy Savings: Sherman Fairchild Renovation


I have recently visited my friend’s workspace, and this friend is an architect and saw some of the designs that he had for a small-medium enterprise production line for sewing dresses. Because some women in the production line are working on intricate beadwork, they needed some focused lighting, while the rest do not necessarily need it. Thus, his light designing team ensured a similar concept described in the article. Also, they installed screen doors to allow ventilation and ambient lighting at the entrances to reduce light requirement where there is sufficient natural light. It was great to see a design that incorporated natural elements and highlighted these to have reduced energy consumption.
