Lighting Design Lab Workshop: Networked Lighting Controls for Healthcare
Lighting controls offer the opportunity to balance the visual environment, enhance space flexibility, and improve user satisfaction while saving significant amounts of energy, and improving maintenance cycles. Designing and implementing high quality control systems can also help to differentiate contractors and designers in a competitive marketplace.
This class will build on the foundation of our one and two day Networked Lighting Controls classes by examining controls that may be effectively applied to areas of specific interest to the healthcare environment including clinics, patient rooms, procedure areas, and related spaces. We will consider how networked lighting controls may help to improve patient and staff perception, productivity, and patient outcomes. We will specifically discuss how lighting controls implementation may relate to current research regarding light and health, circadian entrainment, and shift workers.
