Recorded February 11, 2021
Designing lighting for the next generation of students, educators, employees and technology is challenging and vital to occupant health. Fluorescent lamp sources were often hidden from direct view, but the direct nature of LED light fixtures result in greater occupant impact. This has led to a large increase in complaints due to headaches and discomfort, which also equals lost productivity and revenue. This session will provide strategies on addressing glare and techniques to improve educational and office environment lighting.
