WELL Buildings/Circadian Rhythms

The 1-hour presentation begins by looking at the broad concepts that can be addressed with Lighting Design, before focussing in on Lighting for Biological Activation. Known by many descriptions such as;  Circadian Lighting Design, Human Centric Lighting, Melanopic Lux and Lighting for Health and Wellbeing.

After a quick recap of the basic physiology of the eye, we explore the mechanism by which light becomes a primary driver of the body clock and sleep/wake cycle. The implications for day-to-day life are explored, along with applications in such areas as education, healthcare and commercial spaces.

A technique for quantifying Biologically Active light is presented along with example calculations for a sample office installation. The presentation closes with a detailed and solutions focussed analysis of the WELL Building Standard’s section on Circadian Lighting Design. Delegate interaction during the seminar is encouraged and there will additionally be an opportunity for Q and As after the presentation. Models, samples, demonstration pieces and handouts will be available during the seminar.


LED Lighting

The 2-hour presentation begins by looking at some common methods of generating light and considers them from the perspective of exploring the phrase ‘quality light source’. Starting from this idea, we proceed to look at the range and selection of LED technologies and the applications to which they lend themselves most appropriately.

Attempting to draw lines between manufacturing with LEDs, lighting design with LED luminaires and specification of LED products. The talk is aimed at those with an interest in the long-term performance of lighting installations and the technical qualities that can be defined when specifying lighting equipment.


An outline list of topic covered is as follows:


  • Ways of generating light
  • Light colour and colour consistency
  • LEDs for general lighting
  • LED life expectancy and reliability
  • Light distribution and optical control
  • Luminaire efficiency
  • Measurement and verification techniques

This is followed by an opportunity to view further demonstrations and samples, and discuss any topics raised during the presentation.


Wireless Lighting Controls


The 1-hour presentation begins by comparing control features available with the other three lighting control systems which Luxonic supply. Installation benefits, practical uses and the possible different operations are highlighted.

The course then proceeds to explain how the wireless controls system works. Also covered is the setting up of luminaires using provided software on a tablet, such as linking luminaires using simple point and drag techniques.

The presentation will also include information on WELI Hubs (Emergency Lighting Interface) what they are used for and the benefits they provide. Data collection via a collator and the data available for reporting, such as for energy monitoring, heat mapping and emergency tests will be explained.

Lastly, there will be various samples on hand for demonstration purposes.
