DAYLIGHTING CALCULATIONS

Daylighting studies provide information on how far sunlight will reach into a space, as well as locations of possible hot spots that may occur throughout the day.  A daylighting study can provide insight that will allow you to proactively optimize building design, lessen thermal gains, improve interior comfort levels, and increase energy savings.

Includes: luminaire schedules, calculation summaries, isoline templates, renderings, project information 

Output formats: AutoCAD DWG, Adobe PDF

INTERIOR ENVIRONMENTS

Most Interior Spaces will be built in 3D in order to provide the most accurate readings possible.  Calculation points will be placed either at grade or 2.6′ A.F.F. based upon the tasks to be completed in each space.  Unless otherwise noted, rendered areas will be calculated and rendered in grayscale. Furniture such as workstations and chairs will not be included in the interior environment, as they are not fixed objects. However, semi-permanent dividing walls may be taken into consideration. 
In order to begin a job, the client/representative will be required to supply the following: 

An AutoCAD (or equivalent) Floorplan and RCP of the necessary spaces.
AutoCAD drawings will need to have all external references bound before sending.
Reflectances for ceilings/walls/floors (standards are 80/50/20)
Ceiling Heights
Mounting Heights
Luminaire types (cutsheets are best), IES files, and locations footcandle criteria or instructions to meet IES RP guidelines

When layout is completed we'll provide to you: AutoCAD DWG and Adobe pdf file(s) that contain: luminaire schedules, calculation summaries, isoline templates, renderings (if required), and pertinent project information.

RENDERING GENERATIONS

Typical rendered environments will be built with grayscale blocking objects.  Spaces can be built with semi-realistic finishes, colors, and textures, but additional detail will increase not only the amount of time required to build the space, but the calculation precessing time. If you would like to have renderings provided on your calculation layout, feel free to let us know.

ENHANCED VISUALIZATION

The human eye views the world around them in many different layers. The effect of shadows,  the emphasis of contrast, the highlight of an architectural feature can be difficult to grasp in a 2D plan, or a photometric layout with only calculated values.  

With architects, interior designers, contractors, and owners as your clients you need the power to expressively relay your design concept, product performance, and lighting expertise. Exterior perspectives can emphasize the design and materials of the facade and how the photometrically accurate lighting design interacts with that virtual environment. Interior perspectives can provide proof of lighting concept for architectural features and different tasks within the space. An enhanced visualization of an interior or exterior project can provide you the ability to captivate your clients imagination. 

We are excited to assist you with your project. We will provide proofs throughout the process so you can have the opportunity to ensure we’re exceeding your expectations. Visit our Contact Us page to start the conversation.
