Cambridge, MA – The Great Dome at MIT’s Building 10 is shining brighter than ever, thanks to the intricate lighting renovation recently provided by J. & M. Brown Company (JMB), of Jamaica Plain, Mass. The landmark project was recently awarded the ENR 2013 Best Projects Merit Award in the Renovation/Restoration category.
The iconic Great Dome now features three levels of LED lighting, as JMB provided elaborate wiring and installation of 32 custom LED downlights in the clerestory/upper dome, 32 custom Lumenpulse LED uplights in the acanthus detail of the dome, and 50 LED cove lights around its lower level perimeter. The historic building’s interior lighting is controlled by a state-of-the-art Sensor Switch programmable lighting control system.
