Yale University, Tobin Center for Economic Policy

New Haven, CT

SFIL provided interior and exterior lighting design for the 37,000SF renovation of two existing historic buildings connected by an addition. The Center brings together the entire economics department, which had previously been located in multiple buildings along Hillhouse Avenue. The lighting approach was designed to be simple, long-lasting and easily maintainable. The Center includes classrooms, offices and spaces for collaboration for students and faculty. 


This project received LEED Gold Certification. Highly efficacious light fixture selections and lighting layout achieved 40% better than the energy code Light Power Density requirement.
