Salex was involved in the renovation of the Toronto head office of Bank of Montreal at First Canadian Place, a project honoured with an Award of Merit by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).

The project required tremendous planning and coordination from all firms involved, including Kearns Mancini Architects, Lightbrigade Architectural Lighting Design, Lapas Consulting Engineers, PCL Constructors and Guild Electric. As it was a renovation project, construction and installation had to be phased in order for BMO to remain in operation throughout the process.

A significant upgrade to the lighting was accomplished by replacing a majority of the former fixtures with Selux’s M36 System, a family of elegant, intelligent and versatile products. The M36 System is supported by the original architectural grid and incorporates intersections of lights for a continuous grid of illumination. Along with the M36 fixtures, Selux’s M100 LED and MTZ were also featured. The luminaires are dimmable and specified for integration with lighting controls, which are tied in to the building’s automation system.
