Green Lights lighting specialist Damon Wood takes you step by step through upgrading a lighting system, in either a retrofit or a complete redesign scenario, for the purpose of increasing both energy efficiency and productivity. Extremely well-organized and comprehensive in scope, this fully illustrated desk reference provides a virtual "crash course" on all aspects of lighting in the workplace. Going beyond the fundamental principles of quality lighting, the author also fully addresses light's impact on conservation, productivity and occupant safety. Topics examined in detail include lighting quality, upgrade strategies, lighting applications, current technologies, lighting economics, effective maintenance, lighting project implementation, and strategies for assessing energy and cost saving opportunities.
