Acuity Opens Sunoptics Daylighting Training Center
In June, 2012, Acuity Brands, Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of lighting solutions for both indoor and outdoor applications, opened its renovated Sunoptics facility in Sacramento, California, including a new Daylighting University training center. The new facility offers lighting, architectural, and building industry professionals opportunities to explore the benefits of integrated daylighting design. The 1600 square foot daylighting training center offers monthly training seminars and a setting for customer presentations.
“In February 2011, Acuity Brands, Inc. acquired Sunoptics with the vision of providing customers with a complete lighting solution – electric lighting, natural lighting and lighting controls,” said Grant Grable, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, and Value Stream Leader for Sunoptics. “Expanding this facility not only supports the growth of Sunoptics products, but also provides a state-of-the-art, fully integrated daylighting training center to better educate architects, specifiers, lighting designers and building owners on integrated daylighting design.”
Seminar attendees will explore multiple daylighting, electric lighting and controls solutions from Acuity Brands that focus on performance and energy savings. Coursework showcases daylighting solutions for suspended-ceiling applications, including applications in classrooms, offices and manufacturing spaces.
