    The Cleveland Browns’ $5 million, four-month renovation project vastly improves its Training and Administrative Complex in Berea, Ohio. The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

Legrand introduces mobile device charging stations

Legrand Outdoor Power BusStop application.Legrand introduces the launch of outdoor charging stations for mobile devices, the first in a series of permanent outdoor power offerings from a global leader in power, light and data technologies. These robust yet elegantly designed pedestals combine charging outlets with lighting elements to support the growing demand for mobile connectivity in outdoor spaces.

“Facilities are beginning to focus on designing more productive outdoor spaces.  From corporate facilities to higher education institutions, facility managers are being asked to identify ways to encourage collaboration and social engagement outdoors,” said Sabrina Eckert, Legrand product manager. “Legrand saw the need to provide convenient and safe access to permanent power outdoors, enhancing the usability of those spaces to promote longer stays, better productivity and more positive experiences.”

The Outdoor Power Charging Stations are composed of two charging station models, which are available in three standard finishes — black, bronze, and silver, along with custom colors. Each station includes a combination of two or three gangs of power devices, including USB charging, but can also be used for A/V or communications connectivity if desired.

The Charging Station with Accent Light includes a small LED locator light to enable device charging during the day and after dark.  The station stands out from traditional bollards by virtue of the accent light, which clearly indicates “charging.”

The second version, the Power Pedestal, does not include an LED light.  This pedestal is designed for areas that are already illuminated, such as outdoor dining spaces, or for areas where a lower-profile solution is desired. Legrand will add a third version with a full area light later this year.

All Legrand charging stations are NEMA 3R-rated for use in outdoor spaces.
