Product transparency has moved from the sidelines to the mainstream in recent years. Our panel of experts will review the importance of product transparency and why project teams should seek out products with documentation. Learn the differences between EPDs, HPDs, and Declare Labels and what each document can tell you about the product and discuss how the industry is collaborating to advance product transparency through efforts such as the Living Product 50 and A&D Materials Pledge, and databases such as mindful MATERIALS.

Join Legrand at the PDC Summit, hosted by ASHE. The PDC Summit is the premiere event for over 3,200 health care and hospital facility senior leadership. No other conference brings health care planning, design and construction decision-makers together like the PDC Summit.

Organized by the Designers Lighting Forum of New York, LEDucation is the ultimate marketplace for solid-state lighting innovations, giving industry professionals a chance to experience new technologies as well as continue their education through a wide range of accredited seminars. LEDucation is a non-profit event, and its proceeds help stimulate future LED advancements by supporting a variety of grants, scholarships and lighting programs. Legrand will be an exhibitor with Wattstopper products.

Environmental objectives pursued through Green Globes lead to lower energy and water bills, reduced emissions, optimized health and wellness benefits, increases in efficiency with energy and water use, and minimized waste. In this one-hour session, our building rating expert Joe Gohn introduces the rating system and concepts covering new construction assessments with an emphasis on energy and lighting controls as well as energy codes as they relate to the program.

Description: Known as the most ambitious and stringent certification available to the built environment, the Living Building Challenge can seem out of reach. In this 1-hour session, our building rating system expert, Joe Gohn, provides an easy-to-understand look at the LBC and its lighting control opportunities.

Lighting and shading go hand in hand, but how do you design the best integrated system to take advantage of natural daylight? In this 1-hour session, shading expert Dawn Stuckey will speak to the variety of options for lighting control and shade systems and tie it all together to design the best possible daylighting strategy.

ASHRAE 90.1-2019 is the latest federal standard for commercial building energy efficiency. Harold Jepsen, a member of the ASHRAE 90.1 lighting subcommittee and code expert, presents the lighting and electrical power control requirements. Using application emphasis, he discusses the major interior and exterior lighting control provisions, applicability to specific space types and highlights key requirement revisions.

First it was occupant productivity and now, more than ever, designers are considering occupant health and well-being. In this 1-hour session, building rating system expert, Joe Gohn, will present an overview of the WELL Building Standard, with a focus on lighting control strategies. This revolutionary building standard will provide you with ideas on how to optimize well-being in buildings as we all look to head safely back into the office.

A networked lighting control system is a communications network between devices that are becoming more intelligent as they are increasingly built around microprocessors. As such, it is vulnerable to the same hackers who attack corporate networks. With security a growing concern for Networked Lighting Control (NLC) Systems, Charles Knuffke, 35+ year educator on lighting controls and Chairperson for the Lighting Controls Association, walks through the evolution of security, explains the most common terms regarding security, and reviews how to address your clients’ security questions.

How do you know networked lighting controls meet IoT cybersecurity standards? Gain a baseline understanding of networked lighting control security measures that will help you ensure your specified networked lighting controls meet your client’s security requirements. As IoT devices, networked lighting controls can carry security risks and vulnerabilities that expose networks to hackers. Take the first step in building your knowledge of cybersecurity standards for NLCs with this Networked Lighting Control Security Basics AIA while earning one continuing education credit (1 LU/HSW). Join us on Tuesday, October 19th at 1 p.m. CST as we discuss the current IoT cybersecurity vulnerabilities and how networked lighting controls are protected.

The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC 2018) is one of the most widely adopted energy codes in the US. In this 1-hour session, one of Legrand's energy code experts, Harold Jepsen, will review the lighting control requirements of this important energy efficiency standard. Each provision is presented with the core requirements, applicability to specific building space types and requirement key exceptions. He will also address the upcoming release of IECC 2021.

Tunable white lighting technology is defined as the ability to control a light source’s color temperature output. It is also referred to as variable white, dim to white, hybrid white, or custom temperature lighting and is referenced as a key aspect to human-centric lighting design. In this 1-hour course, Christian Groom, Product Manager for Wattstopper’s Human-Centric Lighting offering, will walk the audience through several aspects of this new technology including: current solutions in the market, practical applications and “how to” info in the specification of tunable light projects, pairing of tunable Lighting with Controls, and creating an energy-code compliant sequence of operations.

How do we make buildings healthier and move beyond simply “less bad” in the built environment construction projects? In this 1-hour course, Joe Gohn, National Sales Director, will review the Fitwel Certification System developed by the GSA and CDC and administered by the Center for Active Design. Fitwel is organized around specific incremental changes that will foster a healthier workplace. In the built environment today, this rating system can be applied to Multi-Tenant, Single-Tenant, or Commercial spaces. Lighting and Lighting Controls play a key role in any Fitwel project.
