In typical practice, lighting designers are responsible for defining design intent and specifying lighting and control technology that they believe will deliver that intent. However, designers often sacrifice control over what products actually get installed, or discover a gap between expected and actual product performance that limits their ability to control characteristics of the finished environment. This webinar will examine multiple approaches to incorporating additional measures of validation, accountability, and control into the design-bid-build process, including vertical integration and digital design environments.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
