Understanding Color Temperature, Color Rendering
and their Impact on Fixture Choices

Lighting Expo Color Tempature

Spire Integrated Systems Showroom, Troy MI

With the myriad of choices for light sources and architectural light fixtures, the impact and importance of correct color selection has become increasingly more important.  Having a firm understanding of basic color concepts becomes critical to selecting and specifying fixtures as well as being able to analyze and compare various fixtures.  LED technology also provides the ability to have advanced options such as warm dimming and tunable white capability.  We will discuss when those advanced options are appropriate (as well as when they are unnecessary) and how to address Client/Owner questions about those features.

Presented by Peter L. Romaniello, IALD
Peter began as a theatrical lighting designer in New York City and then moved on to architectural lighting. In 1998, Peter founded his award-winning lighting design company, Conceptual Lighting and is a full professional member of the International Association of Lighting Designers. He has designed lighting systems for over 2000 residences, along with many restaurants, retail spaces, health care facilities, and houses of worship. He has served as a Regional Vice-President and as a member of the Board of Directors for the Illuminating Engineering Society. He has taught many seminars over the years for organizations including the AIA, ASID, NKBA, HTSA, the American Lighting Association, and the IES, and has been an adjunct professor at University of New Haven and Fairfield University.

Lighting Design Process

Lighting Expo Lighting Design

To many people, lighting layouts are just about drawing equally spaced symbols on an reflected ceiling plan (RCP). But the reality is that it is (and should be) much more intricate than that. Understanding and implementing correct lighting design process is what separates a “real” lighting design from a bunch of symbols on an reflected ceiling plan. There are so many things to consider with any fixture BEFORE they get placed on a plan. So, what is that “correct” process? What questions are important in that process and how do we implement that process on a daily basis?

Lighting Artwork

Lighting Artwork

If something is hung on a wall or displayed in a Client’s home, then it is important to them. And if it’s important to them, then it should be lit and lit correctly so that it is treated with the same level of importance. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of recessed wall washers, adjustable recessed accent lights, wall mounted picture lights, track lights (yes, track lights) and mono points. All of them can be appropriate based on client preference. Correct placement of fixtures is as important as the selection and specification of those fixtures. We will also discuss the impact of vaulted ceilings on placement and appropriateness of fixtures as well as how to read spec sheets for specific recessed lights.

Commercial Shading

Spire Commercial

ILG, Troy MI – Lutron Motorized Shades

Designing a Daylight System: Finding the Right Shading Solution
Good daylighting design is critical to the performance of commercial buildings. Daylighting is particularly challenging due to the daily and seasonal variability. However, incorporating daylighting provides some enticing benefits, such as improved health and wellbeing, building aesthetics, energy savings, and building value. Choosing the right dynamic shading system is the key to achieving maximum daylight potential. This presentation will describe the important decisions when choosing a shading solution including control method, technology, and material properties. With this knowledge, you will be able to take full advantage of the available daylight to enhance building performance.

This course will cover various areas of lighting control in an office. The course will cover how the goals of light control extend beyond energy savings, and the motivation of various parties for the use of these control means. The participants will investigate several control strategies and learn to apply them to several spaces within the building. An interesting part will be the intelligent integration of several strategies within the same space for more impressive impacts. Finally the participants will receive an overview how spaces perform with these strategies and how to specify control strategies appropriately to make sure performance criteria are met .

Lunch will be served after the course.

Light affects the look and feel of every space, and by using flexible, energy-efficient LED light sources you can create comfortable beautiful and dynamic lighting environments. But as LED technology continually adapts and improves, it can be difficult to stay on top of the latest innovations, and to make sure you’re getting the best performance. You are probably familiar with color rendering, but what about TM-30, the new method for evaluating color rendition? And what’s the difference between tunable white, spectral tuning and warm dimming? In this course, we’ll break this down and give you simple tips on how to effectively evaluate different LED light sources to offer your clients an enhanced lighting experience.
