UMUC | ADMIN BUILDING OFFICE OF THE FUTURE

Client: LITTLE
Location: Adelphi, MD
Size: 23,000 SF

The general scope of work was to provide MEP engineering and lighting design services for the “Office of the Future,” approximately 23,000 SF, located on the first floor of the UMUC Administration Building. CFR provided design for latest energy monitoring systems for all MEP systems. CFR also provided lighting design services and selection of lighting fixtures. The lighting design goal for this project was to design a modern open collaborative office space that created a fun and adaptive environment for the ever-changing office space. The architectural and lighting intent was to create a very open office environment with a mix of cloud ceilings and no ceiling areas.  Orderly random lines of light were created with varying lengths of pendant or recessed linear lights depending on the ceiling conditions.  One major challenge was the fact that most of the space did not see daylight due to limited window exposure.  To provide occupants with a sense of daylight, the back walls of all offices without windows were wall washed with a perimeter linear light fixture.  To also bring the outside in, two garden walls and a garden “Picnic-Break” room were created in the interior of the office space. These garden areas were lit with a combination of white LED grow lamps as well as tunable LED white lights that were programmed to automatically match the color temperature of daylight that naturally takes place during the day.
