Legrand Integrated Solutions new offices in Sint-Niklaas
June 21, 2021
With many of our customers we have already carried out for years great and challenging projects and collected a lot of memories of our previous location in Beveren, known also for its large garden and bright training room. But after the earlier announced reorganization and the move of our inventory to France, the old building wasn’t fitting the company needs anymore. The new building needed to offer a modern work environment for customer care, sales, technical and driver development teams. Especially the options for easy testing and support to our customers was a key factor.
In these 6 single-family villas project there was a need to manage in each one of them the control of different functions within the home system, such as: 56 blind and shutter motors, 12 underfloor heating zones and 9 Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning zones, flood, smoke and gas technical alarms, intercom inside the houses and video door entry communication with the external units and of course the lighting and general scenarios that needed to be integrated as well.
Kreon and Legrand’s Vantage team have worked together before so they were up to the challenge of finding a technical solution that could deliver upon the project specifications. Kreon saw light control as a key requirement for their new headquarters and showroom. The light control system had to offer their employees the ability to personalize their environments as well as provide flexibility and reliability at the same time for the showroom to quickly adapt to new configurations. The customization and adaptability requirements brought them to Xicato, well-known for their quality solutions in both lighting and advanced controls.
As part of a renovation of their luxury condo on Siesta Key Beach, Florida, the homeowners wanted to upgrade their Vantage lighting control system with modern keypads to complement the home’s new look. Vantage newest EasyTouch Glass keypads offered a more elegant look and fewer buttons for a less complicated control experience. To cut down on the buttons needed and simplify the control experience, one-touch scenes were programmed. These scenes allow for control over entire rooms, while still maintaining discrete control over a few choice lighting loads, like the dining room chandelier. In addition, the condo’s existing lighting scenes — “All On” and “All Off” — required modifications to provide independent lighting control for the owners’ children in the guest suites.
This is one beautiful residence whose refined and essential design draws on an almost minimalist living space approach while meeting realistic functionality concerns for the homeowner.
