How Lighting Upgrades Can Illuminate Savings for Your Facility

In today’s energy-conscious world, the quest for efficiency and sustainability within our workplaces has never been more important. At MSD, Inc. Electrical Division, we’re at the forefront of empowering businesses to shine brighter while saving more. In our latest spotlight, we delve into the transformative power of lighting upgrades, revealing how a switch to smarter lighting solutions isn’t just a bright idea—it’s a brilliant investment.

The LED Revolution
Dana from MSD Technologies takes us into the heart of our discussion, highlighting the significant savings that can be achieved with LED lighting. Unlike traditional lighting, LEDs consume up to 75% less energy and can last 25 times longer​​. This isn’t just about reducing your carbon footprint; it’s about cutting your energy bills in half. Imagine investing in lighting that pays for itself through savings, then continues to save you money year after year.

Beyond Brightness: Smart Controls and Daylight Management
But the innovation doesn’t stop with LED bulbs. Modern facilities are harnessing the power of advanced lighting controls, daylight management systems, sensors, and dimmers to optimize their lighting usage. Sensors ensure that lights are on only when needed, while daylight management systems adjust indoor lighting based on the amount of natural light available, ensuring that no watt is wasted​​.

The Benefits Shine Beyond Savings
Heather then illuminates the broader benefits of lighting upgrades. Beyond the impressive savings, the right lighting can transform a workplace. Studies have shown that well-designed lighting can enhance mood, boost productivity, and even improve the health and well-being of your employees​​. Upgrading your lighting is not just an investment in your facility; it’s an investment in your people.

Lasting Impact: Sustainability and Facility Longevity
With LED technology, your facility doesn’t just save on bills; it contributes to a sustainable future. By reducing energy consumption, you’re also reducing your facility’s environmental impact. Moreover, the durability of LED lighting means fewer replacements, less maintenance, and a longer lifespan for your lighting infrastructure. It’s a win-win-win for your budget, your facility, and the planet.

WPAFB Sensors Lab

Wright-Patt Air Force Base sought contractors to renovate and add onto the Sensors Lab. The HVAC portion of the project was over $13 million.

  • MSD served as the Design Assist Contractor in conjunction with Heapy Engineering for this project. In collaborating with General Contractor, Butt Construction, MSD provided Design Assist solutions for the following:
    • A large, anechoic chamber
    • An outdoor range
    • Multiple, Class-100 clean rooms
    • A three-story office building addition with DCID 6-9 requirements on many of the rooms

WPAFB Chilled Water System

The chilled water system at a high-security building on the Air Force Base was undersized and unable to keep up with demand. The facility could not operate without chilled water due to the amount of information servers in the building, and the general nature of the building itself. The entire upgrade project would need to be completed with minimal shut down time at the building. HVAC portion of this project was over $3 million.

  • MSD worked in collaboration with Diaz Construction to complete the system upgrades on time and on budget with minimal shutdowns or disruption to the facility operations.

LJB, Inc.

LJB, Inc. was renovating their Miamisburg, OH office and wanted to incorporate energy-saving upgrades.

  • MSD provided Design Build services in tandem with Greensleeves Energy Solutions, a specialist in geothermal systems.
  • MSD and Greensleeves installed a new geothermal HVAC system with open and closed loops. In addition, MSD design and installed the plumbing portion of the renovation.
