Chicagoland Laborers Union Brightens for Education

Chicagoland Classroom with APOLLO LED LDR The Chicagoland Laborers District Council Training and Apprentice Fund (Laborers) has completely retrofitted their Chicago and Carol Stream training centers with Orion light fixtures These projects, which focused on upgrading their classrooms, hallways and cafeterias with Orion’s APOLLO® LED LDR® Troffer Retrofit fixtures, have significantly improved the quality and quantity of light. As Richard Schumann, administrator of the Laborers Chicago, Illinois facility explained, “I get here early in the morning, often times before the sun comes up, and when you turn the lights on, they almost feel like sunlight.”  The improved lighting systems have helped the Laborers meet their twin goals of improving their education environment and reducing their operating and maintenance costs. As Keith Vitale, Training Director at the Carol Stream, Illinois facility explained, “I have never really thought of lighting as part of education, and how it impacted the learning environment until we went from our yellow lights to the Orion LED lights.” Orion partnered with Sustainable Lighting Solutions to deliver these projects.
