WELL and Lighting Considerations: Commercial lighting controls | LIVE WEBINAR

Tue, 3/31/2020 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm


The WELL Building Standard is the first standard to focus solely on the health and wellness of building occupants.

Originally launched in 2014, this standard marries best practices in design and construction with scientific based health and wellness interventions.  With occupants spending 90% of their time indoors, the need to design the lighting, lighting controls, and electrical infrastructure to positively impact nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep, comfort, and performance has never been more important.  This is achieved by implementing strategies to encourage healthy and more active lifestyles and reduce exposure to harmful chemicals, lighting conditions, and pollutants.

This webinar is designed for: Architects, Electrical Engineers, Lighting Designers, Contractors, Distributors, Inspectors, Building Officials, and anyone intersted in learning more about WELL's approach to lighting and commercial lighting controls.
