At Lam we’ve been doing sustainable design long before it was a buzzword, but we recognize that energy codes and LEED serve as basic metrics of sustainable lighting design. Lam designers are directly involved with the writing of energy codes, LEED credits, the International Green Construction Code, and light pollution ordinances. We have a strong commitment to meeting and exceeding codes and standards, and have the skills to fully document compliance.
- Design to minimize lighting power density while maintaining lighting quality
- Design for maximum utility incentive payments and LEED points
- Daylighting design and analysis to achieve LEED Daylighting credit
- Exterior lighting design and analysis to achieve LEED Light Pollution credit
- Produce submittal documentation for lighting-related LEED credits
- Advise on lighting control strategies to minimize energy use
- COMcheck reports for energy code compliance and utility incentives
- What is ‘lighting power density’, and why is it important?
- Can I use tree uplights and still get the LEED Light Pollution credit?
- Are daylight responsive lighting controls required by code on my project?
- Can I get the LEED Daylighting credit with my building design?
- What lighting power densities should the energy modeler use for this project?
