The new Philips headquarters building, once the Color Kinetics facility, is showcasing its commitment to uphold “green principles” utilizing energy efficient LED lighting technology and construction. The 50,000 square foot Philips Solid-State Lighting Solutions corporate building in Burlington, Massachusetts was unveiled just before Christmas. Philips considers this new building both a testing ground for LED luminaries and their potential impact on conservation efforts and a showcase for the future of lighting around the World.
The building includes a showroom lit entirely by LED sources to highlight various market applications, conference rooms utilizing color and white LED light systems, an LED History Wall, color LED lighting in the work areas and exterior LED accent lights that face Route 128 where the building is situated. In addition to the utilization of energy saving LED lights wherever possible, the building also has Energy Star appliances and office equipment installed, water saving faucets and devices in the restrooms, and “green” carpet and flooring.
“The solid-state lighting market is projected to reach $20-30 billion by 2025, and who better to demonstrate the power of this flexible and energy-efficient lighting technology than Philips, right here at the center of its global SSL innovation,” said Philips Solid-State Lighting Solutions CEO, Bill Simms.
