Lighting and sustainable design…
creating a consciousness for the future
Sustainable design :
Getting the Green Light

“Sustainable design meets the qualitative
needs of the visual environment with the least
impact on the physical environment”

I A L D / Sustainable Design Committee
November 2001
             IALD SDC Goals
..to create an expanded awareness and consciousness of
    important global design issues in lighting, through
    educational seminars, articles and policy statements

Topics include:
•   Energy efficiency
•   Daylighting integration
•   Lighting Control programs
•   Light pollution and light trespass
•   Visual performance and productivity factors
•   Durability and Maintainability of lighting systems
•   Eco-Friendly Products / recognition to manufacturers
What is the best strategy to create
an awareness of the value of good
lighting design?

  R.O.I / Return on investment

 Lighting is a technology that can actually provide
 a payback on an initial investment over time !
Cost$ Associated with Lighting
•   Equipment
•   Installation / labor
•   Energy / Maintenance / life cycle costs
•   Daylighting design
•   Aesthetics / of the design and fixture
•   People !
•   Fees …. liability and the cost of doing it right the 1st time

… lets take a look at a few of these issues
• Establish budgets early

• Have the involvement early in the design of the
  project owner / operator

• Do “value engineering” during the design phases

• Specify systems that reduce site labor costs

• Provide clear and concise specifications

• Manage the design and Control the specification

• Follow the IALD / LIRC Guidelines for Lighting Specification
         Energy and Efficiency
• Life cycle cost analysis will demonstrate an easy 15%-30%
  return on investment when specifying an energy efficient
  system of lamps, ballast and high performance luminaires

Eco-friendly lamps / little or no mercury   Induction lamps / 100,000 lamp life
        Illumination Aesthetics
 • Creative lighting techniques brings award
   winning value added to any project …..

       Lighting Control System
• Save energy and..reduce peak demand
• Cut maintenance costs by increasing lamp life
• Integrate daylight and electric light with control
  systems / photocells
• Increase productivity in offices with personalized
  control in private areas
• Attract attention in retail
• Create ambience in restaurants
 Light Pollution and….quality
• Billions of $$ are wasted
  each year from light
  directed up into the sky

• White light is 2 to 20 times
  more efficient than yellow
  light for human nighttime
  visibility in certain

        The Human Factor

• Visibility and customer perception in retail
• Improved speed and accuracy of workers in critical
  inspection areas
• Increased commerce in downtown districts
• Improved perception of city image
• Reduction in crime after dark
• Reduced liability risk from accidents
• Office lighting and productivity
             Office Productivity
• Research is underway to prove what we instinctively
  already know……

• The quality of illumination affects mood, attitude,
  performance, health and productivity….

    Design…using lighting qualities
•   Illuminance and luminance
•   Color / Color Kelvin and CRI
•   Brightness / measured, perceived and visual comfort
•   Illuminance contrast
•   Movement and patterns
  The Cost of Office Productivity

• Lets do the math…

• Cost of an office lighting system… $2.50-$6.00 sq/ft
• Cost of salaries / typical office  $140-$160. sq/ft
• Cost to improve lighting quality   $1.00-$3.00 sq/ft

 Now.. what IF… using proven lighting techniques could
 improve productivity by as little as … 5 percent ??
Case Study / Automotive Retail…
Attraction.....a discussion of the illuminance criteria for
specific visual tasks... a new paradigm for the industry.
