The Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Florida is a popular destination hotel for couples, business travelers, and convention goers due to its location and amenities. As part of its recent renovation, the hotel called for all new exterior lighting to illuminate the façade in a dynamic, yet sophisticated manner, as part of the overall update to its facilities, branding, and image.
While RGBW light sources were considered initially, the design team selected dynamic white light as the preferred choice commensurated with the tastes of guest clientele. Several manufacturers were considered on the basis of performance, cost, ease of installation, and mounting flexibility. The design team generated calculations and renderings using each of the manufacturer’s products, followed by on-site mock-ups of selected products to compare calculated performance versus actual experienced results. In the end, it was determined that Griven was the ideal match to the customer’s criteria. According to our representative, David Silverman & Associates, the Griven option was "bigger, better, and brighter at the lowest cost.”
