Light and Circadian Lighting (1LU)

Creating circadian-supportive environments, where each person’s 24-hour needs differ, can be a challenge under the best of circumstances, yet never more relevant than in today’s uncertain times. Architects and lighting designers, whether in pursuit of knowledge as standard practice or seeking to achieve WELL points for their clients, often ask for guidance in understanding the issues regarding circadian light.

This presentation addresses basic circadian lighting principles and the consequences of circadian disruption, as well as current circadian metrics and lighting technologies at our disposal to facilitate the design of lighting that supports 24-hour schedules
and spaces.

April 15th | Noon – 1 PM
Product Transparency for the Future of Healthy Buildings (1LU/HSW) 

Product transparency and sustainable design is a green building initiative gaining momentum with specifiers and building owner requesting materials free of harmful chemical toxins in an effort to create healthier, high performing environments. In this seminar we will discuss why project teams should be seeking out product transparency documentation to achieve their material ingredient transparency and optimization goals. We will dive into recent green building standards with an emphasis on the International Living Future Institute’s Living Building Challenge, Red List, and Declare 2.0 program. Lastly, explain how project teams can use this information to make more informed decisions and achieve various credits, features, and imperatives within the LEED, WELL and Living Building Challenge.

April 20th | Noon – 1 PM
Creating Inspired Architectural Down Lighting(1 LU/HSW)

  1. Discuss the role of downlighting, in conjunction with other luminaire types, in creating visually interesting spaces with multiple layers of light.
  2. Apply downlighting for uniform and non-uniform general illumination and high contrast accent lighting
  3. Apply downlighting to effectively light vertical surfaces
  4. Use spec sheet and photometric data to select, compare and identify the best downlight for use in a given application.

April 22nd | Noon – 1 PM
Light + Well Building(1 LU/HSW)

WELL is the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally. As stated by The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™), 4,156 projects encompassing over 540 million square feet are applying WELL across 61 countries.

This presentation gives an overview of the lighting requirements in WELL v2 standard, focusing on key factors plus practical recommendations and strategies that should be considered when designing and specifying human-centric lighting in commercial spaces.
