May – IES Phoenix Section Illumination Awards.
We would like to thank all of our past speakers for sharing their knowledge with us. Here is a partial listing of some of our past programs.
Energy Systems Design
2018 IECC Update
|A presentation on the requirements of 2018 IECC, with emphasis on commercial energy efficiency of electrical power and lighting systems. Included a summary of all requirements for construction documents, project compliance, and commissioning, with specific highlights of changes from previous versions. Handouts included decision trees for the power and lighting system sections, and bullet points of the code changes. City of Phoenix is in the process of adopting the 2018 Building Construction Codes, with implementation target date of July 6, 2018 and mandatory compliance required by September 1, 2018. Nathan Short, our presenter and instructor, has over 11 years of experience in electrical design. He has presented on the IECC to groups ranging from architects to lighting reps approximately 10 times in the last few years. He is former IES Phoenix Section Chapter Vice President.|
Creative Designs in Lighting
|Tour of Mountain Shadows Resort and Condos & IES Illumination Awards||The original Mountain Shadows Resort was built in 1959 at the base of Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley. The IES toured the new Mountain Shadows Resort that was rebuilt from the ground up and opened it’s doors last year as a modern icon of luxury. The tour explored the interior spaces (Hearth ’61 Restaurant, Ballrooms, Art Gallery, Proshop) and exterior grounds (Roof Terrace, Wedding Lawn, Pool Terrace, Entry Experience), and also viewed a finished condo unit.|
|04/18||IES Phoenix Section||IES-PHX Spring Networking Happy Hour||The IES Phoenix Section hosted a networking and socializing event for the lighting community at OHSO Distillery in Scottsdale. This was a free event and included appetizers, games, and an opportunity for the community to meet with the IES board members.|

|University of Phoenix Stadium LED Lighting Tour||Witness in action the LED sports lighting technology from the University of Phoenix Stadium. Tour showed how these LED lights are DMX controlled and the installation techniques used, Up On the Catwalk!
We also visited the new luxurious, state of the art, 50-yard line lounges and VIP Suites, showcasing an interactive, upscale game day environment.
|“The Roman Colosseum”, a First Hand Account||The presentation focused on lighting techniques regarding ancient monuments and how to preserve its history through lighting. The approach is using a non-intrusive technique that highlights areas and materials without exposing the light source.|
Creative Designs in Lighting
|ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR EXTERIOR LIGHTING||Architectural photography will help you take better pictures of your projects for marketing, awards, and wall decor. There is an art to getting great shots of exterior lighting projects. Having a quality camera with great lenses is a good start, but there are several other things to know that will elevate the impact of night photography. From discussing the best time to shoot to understanding the optimum camera settings, this presentation shows how to take better pictures to present your projects and products for marketing, design awards, and stellar portfolios.|
|12/17||IESPHX||Desert Botanical Gardens – Las Noches de las Luminarias||A wonderful evening of networking and enjoying the 8,000 hand lit luminaria bags, thousands of twinkling lights, the beautiful garden landscape and a rare treat, monumental sculptures of Japanese American artist Jun Kaneko.We met at the entrance for cookies and hot chocolate before entering and then enjoyed some good live music together at the event.|
R.C. Lurie Company
|Lighting Product & Technology Design Trends||Topics included Tunable White, Saturated & Tunable Color, Dynamic Lighting, Lighting for the Built Environment, and Controls Development/Reporting. This presentation will provide a broad overview of several topics that lighting manufacturers are focusing on. Knowledge of these topics will be greatly beneficial to lighting designers and engineers as the technologies further mature and become more widely implemented.|
|05/17||Mariana G. Figueiro, Ph.D./
Lighting Research Center
|Light and Health: From Science to Applications||Biological rhythms that repeat approximately every 24 hours are called circadian rhythms. Light is the main stimulus that helps the circadian clock, and thus circadian rhythms, to synchronize with the 24-hour day. If lack of synchrony or circadian disruption occurs, we may experience decrements in physiological functions, neurobehavioral performance, and sleep.
Lighting for the circadian system employs lighting design objectives that differ from those typically used in traditional architectural lighting design, and therefore, requires metrics that differ from those currently used by lighting designers.
In this presentation, the limitations of current lighting metrics (e.g. CCT, lux) in specifying light for the circadian system will be discussed. Practical design solutions to increase the potential for circadian light exposure in buildings and new field data investigating the health effects of light will be discussed.
The goal of this presentation is to provide attendees with new tools and metrics that will help them specify and apply effective lighting to improve our lighting in our living environments.
