Customer challenge

Westfields is a shopping legend. It is the world’s largest retail property group, with 40 centers in major cities around the globe. For its 10-floor office in Sydney, the company wanted a lighting system that would make it come first in sustainability too.

The right lighting

Philips got to work installing new lighting. At the heart of Westfield’s new system is the Dynalite control system. Using Digital Addressable Lighting Interface(DALI) technology, it delivers increased energy savings by monitoring and controlling lighting. Rather than leaving users to adjust the lighting manually, the Dynalite system will dim the light whenever rooms are empty, or when there is enough daylight present.

A total of 300 DALI fittings were installed in the building, controlling a range of energy-efficient LED and fluorescent luminaires. The setup, which is managed globally through a central computer, ensures that there is a comfortable level of light throughout the building at all times. In addition, employees can manually adjust the lighting levels to their own tastes if they want to.

The new lighting has created a new benchmark in energy savings, comfort, and flexibility. In addition, the Dynalite control system is easy to upgrade and modify in the future, making it an excellent long-term investment.

The cutting-edge lighting solution has helped Westfield to achieve both a 5-star NABERS Energy rating and a 6-star Green Star rating. By reducing energy consumption by 30%, it has drastically reduced electricity costs.
