Integral's Net Zero Rollout Starts with Daylighting
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
"So often, we focus on big flagship projects or one-offs. Meanwhile, we can have a huge impact on health, well-being and energy efficiency, when we seek opportunities that may not look as sexy right from the get-go," said Kera Lagios, associate principal and lead lighting designer at the Integral Group's Oakland office. Lagios is describing Integral's "model" design that exploits the latest in smart lighting and net zero engineering. So far, this venture has transformed four dated commercial properties in Silicon Valley: formerly dark tilt-ups are become light-filled, healthy work environments for growing tech companies.
