Welcome from the chair
SESSION ONE: GUIDANCE AND STANDARDS
LG15: The key considerations
Speakers: Carolina Florian of GIA Equation, Keith Miller of GIA Equation
Keith Miller and Carolina Florian of GIA Equation look at the key considerations, recommendations and advice in the Society of Light and Lighting’s new lighting guide for transport-related buildings.
Glare and light pollution
Speakers: Jeff Shaw of Arup
Without adequate management, LED lighting can lead to negative environmental impacts such as increased light pollution due to blue light scattering and glare. How do we minimise these impacts?
Equality Act: The Dos and Don’ts
Speakers: Robert Vasek of WSP
The Equality Act replaces the Disability Discrimination Act and requires reasonable adjustments to be made in relation to accessibility and the needs of likely building users. What, specifically, is its impact on lighting provision?
Coffee, exhibition and networking
SESSION TWO: SAFETY AND SECURITY
The IoT and lighting: The challenges and opportunities
Speakers: Francesco Anselmo of Arup
Lighting has the potential to be the communication backbone of in structural projects and with the right sensors, opens up opportunities for a host of data-based services. The widespread deployment of the technologies present a variety of challenges specifically how they will be used and how will they evolve.
Lighting for CCTV and security
Speakers: Jon Laws of Safe Guard Security Consultants
How do we specify the most appropriate lighting to secure maximum-quality CCTV images for site management as well as investigative and evidential purposes?
Emergency lighting for outdoor applications
Speakers: Alan Tulla of Lux, Theo Paradise-Hirst of ChapmanBDSP
In an emergency, what do building occupants do once they have left the exit door? BS 5266 discusses safe passage to a muster point or a place of safety while the SLL Code to the Exterior Environment document recommends that in brightly lit areas, the minimum illuminance should be greater
Q & A
Lunch, exhibition and networking
SESSION THREE: BEST PRACTICE
Case study: Rail best-practice exemplar
Speakers: Stuart Grahn of Grimshaw
As managing partner for Grimshaw’s London office, Mark plays a key role in project work, and he has specialist expertise in rail, aviation and metro design projects, as well as wider experience in the leisure and commercial property sectors. He is currently working on several projects including high speed rail
Case study: Have you ever been to an inspiring airport?
Speakers: Juan Ferrari of Hoare Lea
There is currently a trend to set up the record of the biggest airport in the world, but how inspiring are they? Juan will be exploring them and sharing his experience of being responsible for the lighting design of large scale airport projects such as Heathrow T2A & B and the New Istanbul Airport.
Case study: rail lighting – 21st century solution
Speakers: Richard Caple of Thorlux
Presenting a recent case study, Richard Caple explains how cutting edge technology has been employed to solve a common problem in the rail sector. By combining good lighting design, high performance fixtures and clever controls, the end user has been able to realise both energy and maintenance savings whilst improving
Q & A
Coffee, exhibition and networking
SESSION FOUR: VISUAL PERFORMANCE
Asset management and testing
Speakers: Allan Howard of WSP, Peter Harrison of The ILP
Most lighting columns and high masts are in public areas so their structural integrity must be monitored, recorded and maintained. What’s an appropriate test and inspection regime for exterior lighting?
Panel: Colour temperature, light levels and mesopic vision: Are we on the same page?
Speakers: Alan Tulla of Lux, Alistair Scott of Designs for Lighting, Peter Wasmuth of Network Rail, Steve Fotios of University of Sheffield
As BS 5489 allows us to use lower illumination levels when using cool light sources, should we automatically drop light levels? What’s the relationship between colour temperature and mesopic vision? What’s an appropriate and acceptable colour temperature for exterior applications? Our panel of leading experts consider the issues.
