GM Headquarters Lit by Lumenpulse
Powerful Color-Changing Floodlights Create Signature Look for Iconic
MONTREAL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Yesco and Lumenpulse have
teamed up to highlight one of Detroit's most recognizable buildings,
the General Motors Headquarters. The new scheme has given the
building a bold new identity after dark, signaling a resurgence for
both GM and the city. A total of 16 Lumenbeam LBX color-changing LED
luminaires were used to accent the tall vertical slots that mark each
of the outlying towers, a defining feature of the building.
"The Lumenbeam products offered a powerful yet efficient light
source," says Nick Priest, YESCO's Director of Special Projects.
"Anything mounted in the keyways would prove difficult to service due
to limited access and the sheer height, so the sturdy construction
and long life of the Lumenbeam LBX fixtures was important."
YESCO's on-site testing revealed that only four LBX fixtures would be
needed to light each of the 20-storey concrete keyways, "a testament
to the evolution of LED," says Priest. Lumenpulse's DMX-based control
technology also connects the fixtures into the YESCO PrismView(R)
control network, so the keyways are perfectly color-matched with the
crowns on all five towers in response to natural lighting conditions.
An IP66-rated luminaire, the Lumenbeam LBX fixture is particularly
ideal for architectural floodlighting on tall structures. With an LED
lifetime of 120,000 hours, relamping is reduced to a minimum.
