Daylighting professionals explain daylighting design principles, criteria and metrics you can use to optimize daylight use for your projects. Specific examples from projects on the University of Washington campus demonstrate tools and techniques used to analyze, manipulate and maximize daylight performance in different types of spaces. They found their inspiration from an unlikely source: lichen growing on a rock.
This course looks at the advancements and opportunities for providing energy-efficient lighting in a 24/7 environment such as a hospital. The course discusses concepts such as harvesting daylighting, which looks at the amount of lighting in a space to determine when electrical light doesn’t need to be on; tones of white light; color temperature; spectral power distribution; and color rendering of white light. The healing and emotional power of lighting is examined through various case studies such as the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, Bethesda, Maryland, a rehab center for solders suffering traumatic brain injury who are easily disoriented triggered by light, the Loyola Bone Marrow Treatment Facility Renovation, Maywood, Illinois; and the Banner Page Hospital Emergency Department addition, Page, Arizona. Lighting solutions are proposed such as minimal interior contrast, no point lighting, creating wayfinding with sconces, and using passive light.
This course looks at the results of a recent report called Let There Be Daylight, the result of retrofitting daylight controls in New York City office buildings. Lighting is the largest electric end use of a building and New York City’s new lighting laws will drive massive retrofit activity in its commercial buildings. The course discusses the process and challenges of measuring and verifying lighting and shading controls, the energy and cost benefits of daylighting, deploying daylighting technologies and components, and the role of operations and building management in the success of such systems. Wrong ways to daylight a building such as over-glazing it, ignoring shading and glare control, and skipping automated controls are examined along with GSA’s Proving Ground data that looks at its own energy savings from lighting controls, along with case studies such as the New York Times Headquarters Building and the Time Warner Center retrofit, which reduced its lighting energy by 55 percent.
This course will discuss lighting in LEED v4 and introduce new credits, metrics, and methods of compliance for LEED lighting-related credits.
It's undeniable that the lighting industry is in the midst of dramatic change. Today's smart systems now respond to changing conditions to deliver the right kind of light for the current task when needed. All while consuming less energy and maintenance.

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.
