As the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm, CBRE plays an important leadership role in determining industry best practices within the 5 billion square feet of building facility space they manage.
“We found it simply does a better job when the sun is low in the sky,” explains Mark Jongewaard of LTI Optics, whose study demonstrated the efficiency and lumen output of the Dynamic Dome. “The device brings in a usable amount of light earlier and later in the day.”
CBRE’s management knows that natural interior daylight has a positive impact on workplace health and productivity and, as such, skylights were incorporated in the warehouse space that CBRE leased to VELUX Company—themselves a leading manufacturer of skylights.
“If we do another building, then I will definitely look into it and actually ask for a proposal for them to provide the skylights for the jobs.” — General contractor, Paul Slocum of Montane Building Group.
