Project Summary: PDF Download
Russ Kulinski, Resident Manager, of Admiral Thomas Condominium As- sociation, Honolulu, Hawaii requested proposals for entrance landscape lighting from local designers in February of 2004. One firm selected metal haliwde luminaires of 35 watt (54 total watts each) and 70 watt (94 total watts each), plus 1 – 1000 watt metal halide roof mounted. Total wattage for the 34 recommended fixtures was over 3,500 watts. Cost with installation was nearly $39,000. Tom Brennan of Eco-Lite also provided a proposal using Magnaray® W1PL13 floods (15 total watts each), and W1PL36 (40 total watts each). Tom used a total of 20 fixtures with a total wattage of 475 watts, or a sav- ings of 86% in energy costs. Equipment cost was just under $5,000, and labor at $1,000. It sounded too good to be true, so Tom offered a night-time demonstration. The demo proved worthwhile for all concerned, and was accepted. In 2005, Admiral Thomas Condominium Apartments were recognized by the Hawaii Section of the Illuminating Engineers Society with a Certificate of Award for Outstanding Energy Efficiency Lighting Design.
