    Lighting design for energy code compliance and how it affects interior design (2 IDCEC hours (HSW)

    It can be challenging for designers to balance their client's vision with energy code compliance as new lighting power density and control requirements are introduced. To implement a successful lighting solution that meets today’s energy code requirements, we must first fully understand lighting design. Once we understand how light affects well-being and spatial perception, we can then apply best practices with the technology that is best suited for the application. This session will explore the relationship between light and interiors with recommendations that use various interior light applications and solutions that meet ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2010 and NECB 2011.
