CSL (Creative Systems Lighting) Eco-Downlight LEDs Being Used In LEED Platinum Homes

Indigo Park on Kiawah Island achieves highest level of green building certification for model units

City of Industry, Calif. – CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting) is providing a wide range of LED downlighting for Indigo Park, a resort community of 16 single-family residential dwellings being built on 12 acres of land on Kiawah Island, located 21 miles from Charleston, South Carolina. As a result of implementing numerous green practices into the construction process, including use of CSL Eco-Downlight LEDs, at least two of the model homes at Indigo Park have received LEED Platinum certification –the highest level of achievement under the U.S. Green Building Council’s rating system.

Indigo Park homes range in size from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet, with a guest cottage option. Each home site features marsh views of the Kiawah River and its tributaries. The construction process incorporates green practices including the use of recycled and efficient local materials, water efficiency systems, energy efficient fixtures, lighting, appliances and heating and cooling systems.

CSL’s 3-inch aperture Eco-Downlights—including IC/Airtight/Adjustable and those made for New Construction (Non-IC)—are being used in the living room, kitchen, loft, bedrooms and bathrooms. The 2-inch aperture Eco-Downlight LED “Mini” is being installed in a small hallway on the second floor. The builder chose CSL Eco-Downlights because they’ve been tested to last for a long period of time, are dimmable, have a good track record in the field and offer modularity of trims, housings and optics.
