CPD Hours

The SLL Lighting Knowledge Series presents LightBytes, the fifth event of the brand new, peer reviewed series will be taking place at Life Meetings & Events, Newcastle on 26 April 2018.

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





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

We are delighted to announce that the guest speaker will be BIM and Digital Expert, Carl Collins.

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.

Speakers will include Les Thomas from Fagerhult, Graeme Shaw from Zumtobel Group, Helen Loomes from Trilux and Roger Sexton from Xicato.
