Lighting and Daylighting for Sustainable Commercial Spaces

Second LEED Credential Maintenance Program Course offered by LDA

The Lighting Design Alliance office provides a real world example of the effectiveness of sustainable design, operating at only 0.1W per sq. ft, where the stringent CA Title 24 Energy Code allots 1.2W per sq. ft. Looking forward, architects and designers will need to have an arsenal of creative solutions for energy savings, and this case study presents and evaluates more than 10 installed real world applications, while redefining the perception of a commercial office for the future.

Learning Objectives
•Identify lighting and daylighting integration opportunities in their own projects' early design stages.
•Identify strategies for lighting/daylighting performance and evaluate those strategies in relation to energy consumption and conservation including LEED credits.
•Recognize the benefits of occupancy sensors, lighting control presets, daylight sensors, systems integration, and dimming controls, in managing and evaluating energy while maximizing available daylight.
•Compare and assess the effectiveness and limitations of LED, CFL, Fluorescent, metal halide, and incandescent lamp technology as they relate to the future of sustainable design and energy codes.
