Parking Garage

Brea, CA

The Situation

After conducting studies and collecting feedback from local tenants, the City of Brea decided to add a much-needed parking structure to support a thriving downtown. The new structure houses 476 parking stalls on four levels within a popular entertainment, dining, and shopping area known as the “Super Block.”

Providing bright, secure light, meeting CA Title 24 requirements and saving energy were the city’s main objectives when determining lighting.

The Solution

To help the city meet their sustainability goals, FSC’s LED Radial Wraps were installed, providing a lighting power density well below California Title 24 Energy Code requirements. In addition, the L6000 Series fixtures controlled by a sensor helped provide additional savings by reducing energy consumption when the lot is unoccupied. The clean, bright light from these fixtures would provide safety and security throughout.

Going beyond efficiency is our top priority. We didn’t just develop and install a brand-new lighting solution for Superblock – we went out of our way to ensure the entire process was seamless and affordable. Here’s how:

  • Prefabrication: FSC Lighting made modifications to the  fixtures to meet code  requirements by punching 3″ holes for access to concrete box opening and additional holes  for anchor bolts. This customization made installation faster and simpler for the installing contractor.
  • Energy Consumption: 54 watts per fixture (0.07 watts per square foot), which meets CA Title 24 lighting power density requirements.
  • Light Levels: Meets parking foot candle requirements.
  • Intelligent Lighting Controls: The L6000 Series fixtures are controlled by an integrated high/low passive infrared sensor which helps provide additional savings by reducing energy consumption when the lot is unoccupied.
