NEW YORK—The Light Human Hotel, a new eco-friendly brand and concept created by two France-based entrepreneurs—Jean-Pierre Bandeira, CEO of Light Human Hotel and Julien Veyron, Architect and CEO of atelier arcau—will make its first appearance in the United States later this year in Miami. That 80-room hotel on Collins Ave. will be the first of now eight Light Human Hotel properties to open. Additional hotels are planned in the next few years for Miami, San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York, Sao Paulo, Antibes, Rio de Janeiro and London. Bandeira says Light Human Hotels will go beyond LEED in regard to building health and efficiency. Designed for both new construction and retrofits, Light Human Hotels will offer electric vehicle charging stations, optional housekeeping in some cases, farm to table restaurants, fitness centers with bicycles that generate electricity, and the integration of “live” plants into exterior building features. “Light Human Hotel is not a generic brand of hotel,” Veyron says. “Our vision is that Light Human Hotels are shaped for people to live, to share, to work and to have fun together.”

COOPERSBURG, PA.—According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 60 percent of U.S. commercial buildings were constructed before 1980, representing a tremendous need for retrofit products. This staggering number, combined with the ongoing contractor labor shortage, means that demand is high for time and labor-saving products and solutions. To address these issues, lighting control provider Lutron Electronics has launched its Vive wireless lighting control, which makes it easy to bring energy savings and comfort enhancing benefits into new and existing commercial buildings.
ODESSA, FLA.—Hasek Communications, the Odessa, Fla.-based publisher of Green Lodging News, has added a Hubbell Lighting case study to its website. The case study details Extended Stay America’s efforts to improve the exterior lighting at its hotels. From a lighting perspective, the technology used to light up the buildings, parking lots and common areas were outdated. The desired light levels were unachievable, and maintenance costs were unsustainable. The InSite Group and Hubbell Lighting partnered to develop a solution that would replace the existing pole and wallpacks with LED luminaires.
