Corporate Center at International Plaza are
premium Class A and LEED-certified office buildings located adjacent to the
Tampa International Airport in Tampa, Florida.
The original facade lighting used high-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures to
highlight columns of top and mid-levels of the buildings, but fixtures were old
and costly to maintain. Although the fixture
ballasts were located inside the buildings for simpler maintenance, replacing
the bulbs still required building managers to rent cranes. By the end of 2019, 70% of the facade
fixtures did not light. cBright Lighting
teamed with AMPRO, a lighting and electrical service company headquartered in
Tampa, Florida, to develop a solution to meet Cousins’ requirements.
cBright selected 60W Luna RGBW fixtures with a 15-degree
beam to replace 90W HPS fixtures. To
enhance the vibrancy of the colors produced, the fixtures were augmented with
cPure, cBright’s latest color correction technology. With cPure, each RGBW fixture is controlled
with 6 DMX channels, with adjustable white from 2200K to 6500K CCT as well as
full RGBW control. With cPure, the
fixtures can produce more vibrant colors with high saturation.
The lighting is controlled by two systems. cBright’s DMX controller allows users to
define and schedule custom color scenes.
cBright developed 15 scenes per Cousins's request, but they can create
as many scenes as they desire. The
pre-developed scenes can also be triggered through the Master Panel web-access
hardware and mobile app, allowing client to change lighting scenes anywhere and
at any time.
As a result of the retrofit, the Corporate Center
is now equipped with façade lighting that not only illuminates and accentuates
the buildings’ original design, but that can also seamlessly change colors to
match holidays and other events, making them a landmark in the Tampa airport
