CPD Hours

The SLL Lighting Knowledge Series presents LightBytes, kicking off at Manchester Art Gallery on 12 October 2017.

In a reworking of the previous Masterclasses, the Society invites you to a day of peer reviewed, bitsize presentations focusing on the key factors relating to the following topics:

- DESIGN

- SPECIFY

- BUILD

- FUTURE


Each of the four speakers will be delivering a PechaKucha style presentation on an aspect of each of these four topics, with an opportunity for a discussion after each session.

This year's speakers are Nick van Tromp and Les Thomas from Fagerhult, Helen Loomes from Trilux, Roger Sexton from Xicato and Steve Shackleton from Zumtobel.

We are also delighted to confirm that the guest speaker for this series will be BIM and Digital Expert, Carl Collins. Carl has over 30 years of experience working within engineering environments including Arup's unified design group and Arup Associates.

All of the presentations are brand new and peer reviewed, providing the opportunity to add 4.5 hours to your CPD.

The new structure is designed to cover the most relevant and pressing issues which currently face the lighting industry, as well as generating debate and discussion between those within the lighting community and in associated industries.

Within the DESIGN topic, presentations will be covering topics such as exterior lighting as an attraction to encourage harmony and engagement; the need for sustained light quality from LED light sources; and a call to refocus on light quality as the number one priority.

For SPECIFY, the speakers will be looking at maintenance factors: what and why?; LED modules in relation to non-retrofit Vs retrofit and smart Vs unconnected; emergency lighting, looking at use of both stand alone emergency luminaires and incorporating it into the general lighting.

BUILD will cover emergency lighting with reference to luminaire fire ratings; installing lighting controls, comparing LED modules with integrated wireless controls and those with wired systems; and commissioning and testing to ensure that the lighting performs as intended.

Finally, as the title suggests, FUTURE will be looking to potential for development in the following areas, controls; light as a managed service, including rented lighting and potential for other turnkey solutions; predictive maintenance and smart lighting; and ongoing maintenance to cover quality as well as energy.

To conclude each of the topics, Carl Collins will then provide perspective in relation to lighting and BIM. Carl will be consider aspects such as exchange between modelling and calculation software, daylight analysis, product data templates, virtual experience before construction, single model shared ownership and blockchain ordering to name a few!
