This is Michael Sather with Solatube On the Scene. We're here at the South Whittier Library. Welcome to the South Whittier Library opening. The building is tracking to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED Platinum certification The highest from the U.S. Green Building Council. To utilize, you know, fresh, natural light with these lights just opens everything up so it’s fresh, it’s alive, it smells good it makes you feel good it's clean it's beautiful you all did a great job and you have no idea the impact in the lives of people like this. We’ve had, as you can see, around a lot of Solatubes in this library. It's a beautiful and very opportune way to allow natural light into the building. Right now you can see not many lights are on and you see how bright the space is this is just a wonderful way to save energy so that we don't have to use a lot of light. In the long run more people feel comfortable when they get natural light coming in as opposed to artificial lightin. It's a win-win situation and we're very proud and very fortunate very happy using this system over here. This is probably the largest of the new libraries in this supervisor's district and it's targeting LEED Platinum so daylighting and daylight harvesting was a major part of the design strategy for this. Solatube obviously played a huge role in that. Eric, we noticed some of the wall-mounted diffusers and some of the other really creative applications of the Solatube products. Well it was really an attempt to be to bring it a little bit more daylight in and make it a little more playful. Play with some of the patterning ideas going on. There that's kind of circular patterning that goes on throughout the library, different scales, sometimes as in the case here with the end panels that actually means something so these are all written out in Braille, actually. These are words like create, read, explore. Some of the lights in the meeting room are done in kind of a constellation idea and the round Solatube diffusers, both ceiling-mounted and wall-mounted, played into that. Do you see yourself continuing to use Solatube products in the future on other projects? Oh, absolutely. Solatube really is, I think, the Gold Standard for tubular skylighting. A project like this is going to have an incredible impact on this community. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a day to celebrate!
