Retrofit and new install

SL Green: Olivia Building

Situated between 33rd and 34th Streets and Eighth and Ninth Avenues, SL Green’s “The Olivia” is a 36-story residential/commercial tower. Brightcore performed a retrofit of the building’s original lighting systems, with the exception of the public gym area and the 7th floor office area where new construction allowed for the installation of new Lithonia fixtures. Building management and tenants were very pleased with the savings, the increased light levels, the standardized look in terms of color, Brightcore’s warranty, and the ease of installation.
