a. Description: The review the basic technology behind controlling the spectrum of indoor lighting systems that have a positive effect on the users of commercial spaces by leveraging the concept of “tunable-Lighting”.
b. Learn Objectives:

  • Understanding of the human circadian rhythm and how it regulates many other physiological processes and the impact of lighting beyond visual activity: the biological clock of humans affecting sleep, mood, concentration, and alertness
  • Review the recent developments that have led to digitalization (and control) leading to the concept of Tunable Lighting
  • An understanding of what is meant by “tunable” light
  • Review of several application and the benefits associated with controlled and tuned lighting

2:45-3:45pm - PHIL45 LED Luminaires Today: Understanding the technology, and Evaluating the Characteristics of a Quality LED Luminaire (AIA LU/HSW 1.0hr) Presented by Kevin Matthews
c. Description: A seminar that reviews LED technology, to establish an understanding of the benefits of LEDs, and to review the types of applications that LEDs are very well suited for. Furthermore, it is intended as a primer to best prepare the specifier in their efforts to evaluate the quality characteristics of a LED luminaire, including brightness, lumens, life ratings, color, and controllability.
d. Learn Objectives:

  • Understand the key reasons to choose LED sources, and the benefits gained.
  • Describe how the components of an LED system affect performance and reliability
  • Assess the attributes of brightness, comfort and efficacy for building and occupant performance and energy code compliance, including the importance of integrating controls into every project.
  • Evaluate the life claims and reliability expectations of LED point source luminaires.

4:00- 5:00pm - PHIL 39 The Well Building Standard and Lighting (AIA LU/HSW 1.0hr) Presented by Joe Gohn
e. The WELL Building Standard is the first standard to focus solely on the health and wellness of building occupants. Originally launched in 2014, this standard marries best practices in design and construction with scientific based health and wellness interventions. With occupants spending 90% of their time indoors, the need to improve nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep, comfort, and performance has never been more important. This is achieved by implementing strategies to encourage healthy and more active lifestyles and reduce exposure to harmful chemicals, lighting conditions and pollutants.
f. Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to define the concepts and features necessary for the WELL Project Certification Process.
  • Acquire complete understanding of the mandatory and optimizations required for Lighting for WELL Project Certification.
  • Describe and Design the appropriate Lighting technologies to insure proper utilization and compliance with WELL standards.
  • Recognize the environmental and cost benefits associated with utilizing the WELL Building Standard.
