Boulder, Colorado

The high end ski clothing brand wanted to create and office and showroom location in Boulder, requiring the indoor lighting to match the outdoor color rendering index (CRI) and color temperature in order to correctly show what clothing colors and textures would look like when used outside. Research and testing found that LED fixtures were not able to achieve the high CRI required and instead were able to achieve the specific requirements by using fluorescent lamps, perfectly mimicking sunlight without sacrificing energy usage savings. Lighting was able to meet and beat the allowable wattages by 30% per the stringent Boulder Energy Codes.
