Legrand North and Central America: Enhancing High-Performance Buildings at Greenbuild 2018

November 19, 2018


A global innovation leader in power, light, and data technologies for homes, workplaces, and data centers, Legrand North and Central America, will showcase a wide range of products at Greenbuild 2018 designed to enhance the security, health, flexibility, and efficiency of today's High Performance Buildings (HPBs). The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is the world’s leading event for sustainability in the built environment. Legrand products featured at Greenbuild 2018 provide solutions in the following critical areas:

Safety, Security and Resiliency:

Ensuring the safety and well-being of building occupants is paramount. Increasingly, buildings are deploying enhanced video monitoring, fire protection, and security systems that rely on a reliable electronic and digital infrastructure (EDI). A well-planned EDI also enables automated and remote monitoring and control of systems that assist in protecting a building and its occupants.

Occupant Health and Productivity:

High-performance lighting, color-tuned fixtures and smart shading make spaces more visually appealing and help occupants be more productive. Technologies including daylighting controls, occupancy sensing, dimming and human-centric lighting provide the control capabilities necessary to enhance and optimize workspace performance.

Functionality and Flexibility:

Modern HPBs require a ubiquitous connected infrastructure (networks to connect communicating devices) to accommodate diverse technologies, provide new functionality, and support a high-bandwidth network. A reliable infrastructure that provides flexible use of these capabilities is critical in enabling data-driven building operations. 

Sustainability and Energy Efficiency:

Energy efficiency encompasses social responsibility, environmental protection, and the efficient use and protection of natural resources. All building performance attributes intersect with sustainability and efficiency. A whole-building integrative-design approach supports the optimal performance in multiple areas.

“Legrand understands that building owners need flexible, productive, healthy, sustainable and resilient buildings, stated Susan Rochford, VP of Sustainability, Energy Efficiency, and Public Policy. “We're excited to demonstrate the unique depth of our offerings that help achieve high performance in all these areas”

At Greenbuild, Legrand will also highlight the transformation of the built environment in a series of education sessions. The sessions are titled The Critical Role of Electrical and Digital Infrastructure in High-Performance Buildings. The Education Lab sessions will explore the forces driving change in the built environment and how high-performance buildings are experiencing a shift in performance goals in response to issues such as the IoT and the growing availability of connected products.
