30 September 2015: Joint SLL Event on LG7

HCNW and SLL were pleased to welcome Simon Robinson of WSP in this International Year of Light for a joint HCNW-SLL event at Garrards Cross, the venue generously provided by ZG Lighting.


Simon reviewed the legislation, the standards and best practice with reference to BS EN 12464-1 and CIBSE Guide LG7 – Office Lighting. Outlining the design process, the design brief and information that needs to be provided, the building types, design criteria, design options for direct, indirect and combined direct/indirect lighting our seminar covered the full breadth of office lighting. Of course design options for daylighting were also included.


Followed by detailed Q&A from an audience comprising a large proportion of SLL Members, Simon included room design information for primary office spaces, secondary office spaces, circulation areas and back-of-house, as well as lighting for planting, especially in atria.
