We are pleased to have Caitlin Toczko and Shahrzad Abtahi of Lightcraft Group as our guest speakers. Caitlin’s and Shahrzad’s presentation is titled “Guidelines for Specifying Light Fixtures in WELL Projects; What to Consider and What to Avoid.”

About The Program: 

WELL defines new standards for visual comfort and it adapts new metrics for circadian rhythm lighting. Achieving these goals would only be possible by specifying pertinent products for each application. Although these guidelines are pretty straightforward, and it’s been about 1 year since the release of V2, it seems that gathering all required data is not easily feasible for lighting designers. Despite the high demand, many lighting manufacturers don’t provide all the required information that lighting designers need for specifying the right fixtures for WELL projects.

This seminar provides an overview of the lighting requirements in the WELL standard and it will focus on key factors that need to be considered before specifying lighting fixtures. It provides practical recommendations and strategies for both lighting designers and manufacturers who are interested in WELL or are working on a project pursuing WELL certification.

Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to evaluate the intent of lighting features in the WELL building standard.
  • Attendees will be able to understand lighting credits and how to achieve them.
  • Attendees will be able to identify key factors contributing to visual comfort and circadian lighting.
  • Attendees will learn about critical factors that need to be considered, before specifying lighting fixtures.
