The process of developing and documenting a lighting design can vary widely depending on the project type and scale, and on the manner in which it is being delivered. Regardless of the project, there are common steps to be undertaken for all successful lighting projects if we are to maximize the performance of our buildings whhile minimizing our energy use.

This class will introduce a framework for developing a lighting basis of design for effective projects while also reviewing the steps and milestones common to most project delivery methods. Project examples, tips, and tricks for better performance will be introduced to help a wide range of design, construction, and sales personnel.

This class will be suitable for newer lighting practitioners including designers, contractors, architects, engineers, building operators, salespeople, and those seeking to update their knowledge and skills.
