Designing and Specifying Wellness Lighting

December 1 @ 11 AM

We know that lighting is an essential design tool, playing an important role in how a space feels and enhancing our visual experience. We also know that circadian lighting can be used to support our immediate and long-term health. The next step is understanding how to combine these two aspects of light in our everyday spaces.

This presentation will address these design questions and give specifiers, designers, and engineers the tools they need to create comfortable circadian lighting. The techniques in this presentation can be applied to existing spaces (TI) or new construction and will give you the tools you need to specify circadian lighting that is effective and looks great too. It will address common questions about wellness lighting application, including:

  • How do we integrate these two unique qualities of light in the spaces we design?
  • Which areas in a project benefit most?
  • Who needs circadian lighting?
  • How do we balance visual and circadian needs and are there ways to measure wellness lighting?

Learning Ojbectives:

  • Understand the visual and non-visual impact of light.
  • Identify the design considerations that are important when implementing human-centric / wellness / circadian lighting.
  • Recognize simple strategies to improve circadian impact of light and use those strategies to modify design approach.
  • Identify the important performance characteristics to include when specifying circadian lighting.
