Portfolio: Auma Actuators


Auma Actuator is part of a German Company, so a European impression in the space was important. The high quality design of their space was to be impressive to both their clients and their German owners.

Actuators are a geared mechanism and the compact fluorescent chandelier in the lobby accentuates this connection to their product as you enter the building.

Low voltage decorative MR-16 track heads are mimicked with compact fluorescent downlights with locally manufactured custom trims in the corridors. Another track head with a custom gobo emblazons their name at the reception area.

A high quality training center with videoconference capability was critical to their communications strategy with the parent organization in Germany.

A single luminaire in the conference rooms provides direct and indirect lighting with controls to provide for all meeting needs. A variety of complimentary linear direct/indirect luminaires provide a glare free work environment for this heavily computerized VDT environment. The monotony which can occur from using too much of the same luminaire was eliminated.

Proper illumination levels were maintained throughout the facility. All linear indirect lighting utilizes T5 and T5HO fluorescent lamps. A low voltage control system provides the owner with a single button control for all or part of the building. The power density was only 1 watt per square foot.
