Integrating Daylight by Design

October 29th, 2015 – The IES Phoenix Section held a presentation at Phoenix City Grill on “Integrating Daylight by Design”.
Abstract – There are many benefits to bringing daylight into facilities such as health benefits and energy savings which top the list.  There can be detrimental effects, however, when daylighting isn’t properly designed.  This presentation will present some of the key concepts in Daylighting Design including building orientation, building envelope considerations, skylight technologies, and coordination with lighting and control system integration.
