Laurance S Rockefeller Preserve

Located in Grand Teton National Park, the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve was established by Laurance Rockefeller to inspire appreciation and reverence for the beauty of the natural world. The center was the first LEED Platinum Certification in the National Park Service and in WY. Using daylight as a primary light source, allowed for reductions in electric lighting loads while improving visual comfort. Electric lighting was carefully integrated with building architecture, daylighting, and exhibits so that there was only one lighting system. Lighting controls were automated, with manual override. A low-voltage lighting control system with an astronomical time clock, daylight and occupancy sensors, optimized energy savings and reduced maintenance.
