This course will discuss lighting in LEED v4 and introduce new credits, metrics, and methods of compliance for LEED lighting-related credits.
LED lighting is gaining in popularity but there are still some limitations of LEDs, including their higher cost, limited applications and controls compatibility; because LED systems work differently from traditional fixtures dimming is often a challenge. This course will help you understand how to work around these challenges and how to interpret new energy codes as they apply to LED lighting.
The perception of color is informed by a culture and its symbolism, from food and fashion to the landscape, structures, raw materials and light. Color forecasting identifies the newest trends in color that are drawn from these underlying influences and provides an ongoing resource of inspiration for designers and architects. This course will demonstrate the importance of color in the built environment and how color is used in specific industries and building types to inform an occupant of their surroundings.

Prismatic daylighting has been around for more than a century and can provide the best quality light without hot spots and glare. Correctly specifying these passive units allows building owners and facility managers to turn off their electric lights for an average of eight hours per day.
Today, more and more demands are being placed on lighting systems, including better performance, better energy use, better light quality, and simpler management. Read about the first and only high performance LED lighting fully integrated with a robust digital controls platform.
Daylighting has become one of the fastest growing green building strategies in the last few years due to its simple application, significant cost savings and its ability to create healthy, enjoyable work and living spaces. This course is designed to give an overview of how to achieve sustainable design goals with tubular daylighting devices.
Creating high-design spaces for urban dwellers doesn't have to bust their budget or the developers'. Strategies of natural light, extended views, shared common spaces, and passive heating and cooling can help a small space live larger and leaner in maintenance costs.
