Some of the most challenging space types on campuses include high bay applications: gymnasiums, warehouses, loading docks. With ceilings ranging from
20-40’ in height, lighting design becomes complicated by distribution and glare challenges and the always-present importance of reducing operational
cost. California State University at Dominguez Hills tackled these challenges by taking advantage of the benefits of high bay LED solutions. The
university campus at Dominguez Hills encompasses more than 300 acres. With an enrollment of nearly 15,000 students, the campus offers degree programs
through six different Colleges. Among the spaces at CSU-DH are numerous warehouses, gymnasiums and laboratories configured with high bay lighting.
The unique characteristics of high bay applications—high ceilings, unconditioned operating environments, irregular occupancy patterns combined
with 365/24/7 operations—represent ideal characteristics for LEDs. The CSU team employed the sensibilities of architectural design to reap
unexpected rewards in boosting occupant productivity and increased safety as well as capturing an incomparable savings opportunity. Learning objectives
for session attendees: 1. The unique characteristics of high bay applications at CSU-DH, including operating environments, retrofit needs and market
opportunities 2. Understanding the specific lighting design principles the CSU project team used for optimizing energy performance and productivity
3. Understanding the importance of advanced optic designs to achieve the desired lighting quality without impacting energy performance 4. An awareness
of different LED solutions to accommodate installation and operational challenges.
