healthy energy savings
GE incorporates energy-efficient fixtures throughout Boston offices
LED lighting helps GE Healthcare offices operate more efficiently
TH E S I TUATI O N
Tasked with streamlining use of its commercial office space, GE
Healthcare in Boston maximized layout while reaping considerable
cost and energy savings. Reflecting a trend toward more efficient use of
commercial space, the offices in the Back Bay neighborhood previously
spanned portions of 11 floors but are now housed in a more efficient
28,500-square-foot space across just one and a half floors.
TH E S O LUTI O N
Incorporated into the updated space is LED lighting, which provides
significant savings, as lighting uses upward of 30% of total energy
use in a typical office environment.

• Significant cost savings
•Reduced maintenance costs
• Diminished energy use
“The Boston office was at or near the top in regard to the cost to operate.
Through this project, it went from one of the most expensive GE
Healthcare sites to one of the most efficiently run sites for the business.”
- Tim Kannally, Facilities Manager
The new look integrates energy-efficient office lighting from GE’s
own Lighting business, including nearly 350 2x2 Lumination™ ET Series
LED Recessed Troffer Luminaires and 34 square 4-inch Lumination
DI Series LED Downlights, equipped with controls and motion sensors.
The space also incorporates 1x4 Lumination EP Series LED Suspended
Luminaires. The LED lighting offers greater rated lifetimes and diminished
maintenance costs and needs than the T8 and T12 lamps that
previously illuminated the offices.
