WEST HARTFORD, Conn., October 20, 2014 — Legrand and WattStopper, a Legrand Group brand, will highlight the importance of electrical system design in achieving high performance buildings through its comprehensive participation at VERGE San Francisco. The global event that focuses on the intersection of sustainability and technology takes place October 27-30 at the Palace Hotel. 

Pete Horton, Vice President, Market Development for WattStopper, will present key findings from the company’s work with Parkland Hospital, the largest U.S. healthcare construction project underway, while WattStopper showcases its latest product intended to improve building performance and functionality.

Jerry Nickerson, Vice President, Engineering and Program Controls at Parkland Hospital and Bill Dean, CEO at M.C. Dean will join Legrand and WattStopper to present the case study. Together they’ll discuss Parkland Hospital’s vision for true high performance — a technologically advanced, sustainable, patient-centered healing environment and state-of-the-art teaching facility. Embracing a "whole building design" approach required the hospital, the electrical controls provider, and the electrical design-build systems integrator to collaborate and take on new approaches, partnerships, techniques and applications.

The conversation will be moderated by Peter Kelly-Detwiler, Principal at NorthBridge Energy Partners, LLC and will share key learnings while detailing how innovative approaches in whole building and electrical design can utilize data to improve building operations, energy efficiency and occupant experience.

Also debuting at VERGE is Legrand’s latest whitepaper, “The New Dynamic of High Performance Buildings: Advanced Electrical Design Principles in Practice.” The whitepaper will explore the five key principles that can serve as the basis for electrical design in buildings striving for optimal performance. The following principles will be detailed and illustrated by applications in various real-world HPB projects:
•    Employment of lifecycle planning
•    Focusing on building occupants
•    Enabling of device connectivity
•    Embracing IT and open systems
•    Harvesting of system data

PlantPROCORE Additionally, the Legrand booth at VERGE will feature demonstrations of WattStopper’s High Performance Building solutions, including previews of its new Digital Lighting Management software. The software offers a robust energy management dashboard that provides actionable energy performance data - critical for achieving HPB objectives.
