K-12 Educational Design: Mastering the Maze of Lighting Controls Specification (In-Person)

Please join the IES Boston Chapter for a presentation that will explain how to get what you really want from lighting controls. Designers and architects need to consider the visual environment they are creating as well as the operational characteristics of the systems being installed. Design teams now often find themselves faced with questions of how to create a level of interoperability and digital integration with adjacent building systems that was not so commonplace in the recent past. Fortunately, the tools exist to articulate both the designer’s intent and the specific steps required to achieve that intent. By examining the development process behind the Control Intent Narrative and the Sequence of Operations, this seminar will provide guidance for assembling these documents and specific examples of language that is both clear and contractually enforceable.
