To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course encourages students to produce creative, detailed lighting design solutions for commercial spaces. Emphasis will be on concepts for lighting, practical applications, specifications and methods to enhance the experience of interior environments. Students will create reflected ceiling plans that incorporate advanced lighting solutions and ceiling details. Photometry will be examined and applied to interior spaces for evaluation, discussion and implementation.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Develop a reflected ceiling plan and specifications applicable to a commercial project, appropriate for a set of construction drawings.
Implement effective lighting solutions that support the design concept of interior environments.
Evaluate the lighting requirements of various interior spaces from a functional, aesthetic and psychological perspective.
Evaluate and implement appropriate brightness contrast into design solutions.
Develop lighting concepts through implementation of the visible characteristics of lighting, including light layering, visual discrimination, and luminous elements.
Implement the principles of various light sources such as incandescent, fluorescent, HID, LED through their appropriate uses.
Apply photometric principles such as beam spread, spacing criteria and lighting distribution when designing lighting layouts.
Identify appropriate illuminance levels as required by jurisdictions having authority.
Recognize the impact of ASHRAE and/or current codes and standards.
Effective as of Fall 2015
