The 200 S. Orange Ave. building was built in 1986, and at 30 stories tall it is the tallest building in downtown Orlando, Florida and one of the main focal points of the city.
The design objective was to give the building a dynamic look by renovating the existing exterior lighting system, regaining the buildings prominance in the Orlando skyline. The client also wanted to add color-changing lighting for special occasions.
SESCO chose Color Kinetics LED systems because of their low power consumption, color-changing attributes, and ease of installation. "We wanted a reliable, user-friendly system that required minimal maintenance so that we could hand over to the client for years of daily use" noted Kyle Ledford of SESCO Lighting.
The installation uses 160 ColorBlast gen4 luminaires and 24 ColorReach luminaires (now specified with ReachElite) mounted on floors 25, 27, 30, and inside the roof spires & exterior turrets of the building. The building's crown is now brightly illuminated which gives it prominence in the Orlando skyline.
“I’ve lived in Orlando for over 20 years. I’m beyond excited for the opportunity to create something that has transformed the night skyline of Orlando, which I proudly call home.” - Kyle Ledford, SESCO Lighting
