The WELL Building Standard® provides illumination guidelines that are aimed to minimize disruption to the body’s circadian system, enhance productivity, support good sleep quality and provide appropriate visual acuity where needed.
We will discuss considerations and impacts to the design process, how to approach obstacles and communicating the direction and value.
Reference some design considerations based on experience in designing for WELL in Arup's Boston office and will touch upon the direct design decisions and the impacts on the technology.
How can you implement a strategy to deliver energy savings non visual lighting requirements and luminous comfort and what are the challenges for equipment/technology and how the is impacting manufacturing?
The learning objectives are
- Identify the lighting preconditions for the WELL Building Standard
- Be able to implement a strategy to deliver energy savings non-visual lighting requirements and luminous comfort
- Be able to describe the advantages and disadvantages of daylight vs combined daylight and electric light (flicker, daylight, circadian)
