The UCLA Health Training Center is the new training center for the Los Angeles Lakers Basketball team.
This state of the art facility features:
• Team Corporate Offices
• Physical training and care facilities
• Two Practice Courts
• Team meeting and game review spaces
Lighting Controls: Provide state of the art lighting controls to meet the aesthetic needs of the facility and the complex requirements of California’s strict energy code.
Color Kinetics: Create Visual interest and drama to the façade of the building with emphasis on both UCLA and LA Lakers team colors.
Philips Entertainment: Philips Entertainment luminaires were used to provide Studio quality television lighting for the press and interview studios in cooperation with the team’s official broadcast team.
The California energy code requires that all lighting be dimmable and where appropriate be controlled by a combination of vacancy sensors, occupancy sensors, local controls and photocells. All lighting in the building is under control of the Dynalite network. The system also manages the scheduling of all exterior and color effect lighting. Acceptance testing alone took 3 days after the system was started.
The design team consisting of the lighting designer and the electrical engineers demanded a great deal more than just sensors and switches in that they also wanted to integrate the systems sensors into the HVAC systems to optimize energy efficiency by adjusting air conditioning when spaces were empty. The system also needed to respond to power demand reduction requests from the utility. In addition to
standard lighting the code also requires control of plug loads in all office spaces with power receptacles split between constant power for computers and switched power for desk lamps and computer monitors. Operating hours for the building were 8:00AM to 8:00PM requiring two sets of programming for day light hours versus night time hours and specific control over daylighting zones to maintain light
