Provide an ample amount of natural daylight from Solatube’s Tubular Daylighting Devices to the interior footprint of the Service Shop.
Goree Architects began designing a project for Lincoln’s latest image program while utilizing Solatube as an effective solution to harvest free daylight. Griesenbeck was involved in the design process to specify a Solatube SkyVault configuration to prevent the hindrance of shadows cast onto the domes by rooftop mechanical equipment and screening.
Griesenbeck supplied and installed (6) SkyVault Tubular Daylighting Devices with (2) units equipped with Collectors that capture and redirect low-angle daylight from early morning and late afternoon hours. The Thermal Insulation Panels were utilized to meet local energy code requirements.
"At West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land, we were tasked with providing natural daylight in the Service Shop for the Owners technicians. Natural daylight helps the technicians feel better throughout the workday, increasing their productivity and also helps illuminate the workspace while working in dark crevices in vehicles. Dustin and Griesenbeck were great assets to the team and were able to help us come up with the most efficient way to provide daylight with Solatubes. They helped specify the right product for the project and assisted with strategic placements of the Solatubes on the roof. During construction, Griesenbeck supplied and installed the Solatubes with no issues. The outcome was exceptional, we were able to provide the client with what he was expecting; with a great product, and an excellent team."
