DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 30 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Ensuring optimum working environments is high priority for DLA Piper worldwide, and with lighting accounting for 66% of their Melbourne office’s total energy expenditure, it was an easy decision to upgrade to LED lighting.
The old 24W fluorescent T8 Tube fittings were replaced with 32W 600×600 Cherry LED Troffers. In addition,
custom-made 500×500 Return Air LED Troffers were used to replace non-standard Troffer fittings previously installed.
In total, over 1,000 Cherry LED lights were installed, leading to a reduction in energy expenditure of 67%. The ambience in the office environment was significantly improved and flickering lights have become a thing of the past.
Alongside the enormous annual energy savings, with the lifetime of the Cherry LEDs at over 50,000hrs, DLA Piper will save over $15,000 every year on maintenance costs for replacing and repairing lights.
