About The Event
American National Standard Practice for Office Lighting (ANSI Approved)
This recommended practice has been substantially revised and reorganized from earlier editions to address recent changes in the office environment such as computer-based tasks, new office layouts, the effect of energy efficiency on lighting design, new light sources and control strategies to name a few.
By maintaining a focus on lighting quality and human visual performance, and using the available technology, lighting practitioners can light the workplace more effectively. Their careful attention to the details, and willingness to work with other members of the design team (architects, engineers, interior designers, owners and users), will ensure the best possible use of available resources in design solutions that are cost effective, environmentally sustainable, and that yield higher workplace satisfaction and consequently enhanced organizational productivity.
Participants will be able to:
Identify an overview of office lighting
Describe the design issue for specific areas of office lighting
Analyze visual needs of office occupants
Apply illuminance metrics for office lighting needs
