Lighting: How codes and guidelines affect lighting design

1 AIA CES LU credit available. Sponsored by: Lutron

Before starting any lighting design specifications, several resources must be considered, which will be presented at this session. Engineers also should seek third-party objective sources for information on and comparison of directionality, efficacy and other properties.


Learning objectives:

  • Learn which codes and standards dictate lighting design.
  • Understand when and where LEDs should be specified in both new and existing nonresidential buildings. Understand when LED luminaire retrofit kits can be specified for existing buildings.
  • Know what types of testing, controls and/or commissioning are required to ensure lighting meets all codes and standards.
  • Gather techniques and tips on meeting codes through lighting designers’ examples.
