B-3 Level Gym Lighting Upgrade

The College's B-3 level gymnasium had been illuminated by traditional, low-efficiency lighting elements. In keeping with CUNY's stated mission of behaving sustainably, this project has resulted in a reduction of electricity consumption. Approximately 64 low-efficiency metal halide lighting elements were swapped for an equal number of T-5 elements designed to produce greater lumen output while consuming far less energy. Additionally, Hunter's Facilities department will benefit from the retrofit by not having to divert resources to replace the gym's lighting as frequently, since the T-5 bulbs that were swapped in will outlive and outlast traditional bulbs by orders of magnitude. The campus community will benefit, as well, since gym classes and activities will be interrupted/disrupted less frequently because the T-5 elements require less frequent maintenance and replacement than traditional bulbs. Work began on this project in the second half of 2015, and as of 12/16 the new upgrade was up and running. To complement the lighting, programmable Lutron "scene system" controls were integrated with the elements to offer a variety of lighting schemes appropriate for various types of events that take place in the gymnasium space.
