Designing Interior Space with Indirect Lighting

Course Description: Humans have evolved to prefer certain characteristics of interior spaces – we naturally gravitate towards and feel more comfortable in spaces that are coherent, that provide a clear view of how to move through them, that are well lit, with the correct balance of different types of light, and where the things that…

Fundamentals in Backlighting

Course Description: Interior spaces can be best enhanced with layer lighting designs, which incorporate a combination of direct and indirect lighting. This course explores how indirect lighting can be used to improve the comfort level of a space and allow it to be used in multiple ways. Participants will learn lighting design techniques for dramatically…

Exterior Façade

Course Description: Architectural Lighting has changed dramatically since the introduction of LED light sources. Structures and landscapes can now be illuminated better than ever using smaller, more efficient light sources. Participants will learn lighting design techniques for dramatically illuminating exterior facades, entries, architectural details and landscapes, using knowledge of LED light fixture intensities, optics, and…

CCT and Color Metrics for Lighting

Course Description: How to accurately measure and quantifying correlated color temperature and color rendering has been a topic of discussion for decades. The new TM-30-15 method from the IES addresses many of the shortcomings of the old single metric CRI system. In the past, several other metrics were investigated and implemented with limited results. Now…

Distributed Lighting Controls – Demystifying Advanced Technologies and Code Compliance

Course Description: Lighting Controls are viewed by many as complex and complicated. Advancements in lighting control technologies as well as new regulatory requirements have increased this perception of lighting controls. This course will present core lighting control technologies and strategies such as time base scheduling, task tuning, occupancy vs. vacancy, daylight harvesting, and the integration…
