Facility safety, Reduced maintenance, Reliability
Improved net operating income, Long-term business viability
Better experience, Comfort, Perceived quality

The Challenge:

Long hours and seven-day work weeks characterize health and fitness facilities. That means there’s an opportunity for big energy savings and big maintenance savings. High-efficiency lighting not only lowers energy bills, but it also decreases maintenance costs while delivering the necessary light quality to diverse areas such as exercise rooms, climbing walls, swimming pools, courts, and classrooms.

The Denver Athletic Club has over 300,000 square feet of premium health club space, including one of the largest squash facilities west of the Mississippi River. After seeing the vast improvements Ecosystems was able to implement in their parking area, the DAC realized it could also save money and improve the member experience by upgrading to high-efficiency lighting inside the club as well.

The Solution:

We evaluated the club’s budget requirements and opportunity for energy savings, leading to the replacement of over 350 candelabras with high-efficiency fixtures and the installation of upgraded, high-performance court lighting.


Ecosystems’ lighting solutions produced immediate comfort and quality advantages within the facility, and member reaction to the improvements was instantaneous and overwhelmingly positive. Membership enjoys the benefits of exceptional lighting, and the club experienced a huge reduction to their environmental impact—all while saving energy and lowering costs.
