Lighting

I will first explore a lighting breadth for Senior Thesis. As shown in previous reports, lighting is
the largest electrical load in the building. I would like to reduce the lighting load to save energy
usage. I will first calculate the total load on a per-luminaire basis. Then I will find new
luminaires that can meet the minimum light levels but use less energy. I plan on doing room
cavity calculations and using AGI to verify lighting design.

Acoustics

As an possible option, I would like to do an Acoustics breadth to isolate sound from neighboring
rooms. Several conference rooms are near other offices. Although large sound isolation may not
be needed in this building, I would like to explore what would be necessary to isolate a
“confidential” conference room. I will be calculating transmission loss required through the
walls and comparing it to NRC ratings of wall constructions.
