Additional awards were given to the E1-Indirect Configuration LED pendant luminaire, and the Series 11 LED Micro Flex and Micro Profile cove luminaires. Winners were announced in this month’s issue of Architectural SSL and featured products and projects that judges considered “the most innovative LED/ solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market.”
Category: Best Renovation/Retrofit
• Winner: The Boston Logan International Airport Terminal B Renovation by Collaborative Lighting, LLC, using Finelite’s HP-4 Direct LED luminaire
• The lighting design uses a 600-foot-long luminaire providing seamless, continuous illumination through multiple ceiling conditions, and daylight zones.
“A nice, clean appearance with a stylish fixture totally appropriate for the space. Terrific job– what’s most appealing about this application is that one can’t tell it’s LED! I also like that this is a very mainstream space and not the more exotic projects where we more frequently see LED in action.” Finelite congratulates Collaborative Lighting, LLC, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc., and AECOM for the vision and attention to detail that made this project a success.
