VISN 7: Energy-Efficient Lighting

Apogee Consulting Group provided project management, architecture, and engineering design services for energy improvements across all eight Veterans Administration medical facilities within the agency’s Southeast Network (VISN 7) area.

The design involved the implementation of energy-efficient exterior LED lighting, interior motion sensors, lighting controls, and lighting retrofits at VA facilities in Atlanta, Augusta, Birmingham, Charleston, Columbia, Central Alabama (Tuskegee and Montgomery) and Tuscaloosa.

The scope of work included extensive field investigations at VA medical campuses throughout VISN 7 to determine existing conditions and assess opportunities for energy improvements. Work extended to the design and implementation of occupancy/vacancy sensors to control lighting in all administrative and workstation peripheral equipment in all administrative and non-patient areas.

Savings from the replacement of all exterior lighting with energy-efficient LED lighting is estimated at 7,333,899 kilowatt hours.
