Join us for a joint walking tour with the American Institute of Architects Arizona Component through the 20 acre Marina Heights campus at Tempe Town Lake. Davis Architecture will be our guide as we explore a representative selection of the 2-million square foot, $600 million project, the largest office development in Arizona history.
Presented by Gregg Adams, LC, LEED BD+C
Thursday November 19, 2015 from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM MST
The Old Spaghetti Factory

The gold standard of interior dimming is the incandescent lamp with its smooth dim to zero, no flicker, color shift to warm, easy maintenance, and positive impacts on lamp life. How close are integrated LED lamps to matching that standard? How do lighting designers simultaneously maintain visual quality for the user without compromising the building’s electrical infrastructure? Are LED’s costing owners more money than they are saving? This course will provide an overview of the complex electronics utilized in solid-state lighting devices and explore the more challenging aspects of integrated solid-state lamp and dimmer interactions.

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.
