Portfolio: Redleaf Innovations


Redleaf Innovations was the conversion of a three story turn of the century post and beam horse stable in Pittsburgh's Strip District to a high tech flexible corporate office space. The lighting design of the top two floors, which were the headquarters, had to provide the feel of high technology while maintaining the charm of the original building. VDT's were a major component of the work environment in this office, as well as in the break areas, so glare free lighting was important at every location in the facility. To this client, glare free did not mean uniform and boring. Sparkle was also important. The space had to be fun.

The first floor was multi-tenant office space for start-up high-tech companies being groomed by Redleaf Innovations' venture capital group.  To Redleaf Innovations, the lighting design for these tenant spaces had to be the same quality as the corporate offices above.

The critical nature of this high-tech business required back-up systems (emergency generator and UPS) to insure uninterrupted power in all situations for all critical loads. The power quality of the electrical system was also given consideration to prevent problems. TVSS and additional grounding was included in the project.
