“In February 2011, Acuity Brands Inc. acquired Sunoptics with the vision of providing customers with a complete lighting solution—electric lighting, natural lighting and lighting controls,” said Grant Grable, Acuity Brands Lighting vice-president and value stream leader for Sunoptics. “Expanding this facility not only supports the growth of Sunoptics products, but also provides a state-of-the-art, fully integrated daylighting training centre to better educate architects, specifiers, lighting designers and building owners on integrated daylighting design.”

Training seminar attendees explore multiple daylighting, electric lighting and controls solutions from Acuity Brands that focus on performance and energy savings. Coursework showcases daylighting solutions for suspended-ceiling applications, including applications in classrooms, offices and manufacturing spaces.
