LEDs as IoT (from Provider K356)

The "Internet of Things" (IoT) era has arrived, and is changing the way we interact with our built environments...and how our built environments react back. Lighting fixtures will be at the center of this revolution. They will become the tool that will empower owners and visitors alike. This course reimagines LEDs beyond their present and ordinary role as a light source, analyzing the IoT requirements and applications necessary to produce this new reality.

Introduction to Exterior and Facade Lighting

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course will explore the use of exterior lighting to illuminate building facades, landscapes, pathways, plazas, and points of interest, like statues. Popular techniques (moonlighting, wallwashing, grazing, etc.) will be defined and the performance of various lighting fixtures will be compared to help designers identify the fixtures best-suited for particular applications. Important considerations including energy codes, dark sky criteria, and occupant safety will be addressed. The renovation of the exterior lighting at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, designed by Ardra Zinkon, will be profiled.

Sustainable Curb Appeal

When it comes to the impact of building materials on the resources that make up our built environment, it’s more important than ever to communicate about what’s inside. In this course, we will talk about what is material health and what product transparency means? This course will also explain what types of reporting tools exist, resources projects team have available, what they are telling us and how this is driving innovative market transformation.

Optimized Design, Efficient Construction: How One Company Successfully Constructed a Massive Timber Project

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This case study presentation offers a rare opportunity to learn about mass timber from a company that built one of the largest cross-laminated timber (CLT) projects in the US – a five-story, 156,000-square-foot office building in Hillsboro, Oregon. Swinerton Builders, which undertook all aspects of construction in-house, shares information on procurement and erection not easily found through other sources. Insights will cover preconstruction activities, including design optimization, proper use of BIM to manage the many prefabricated elements inherent in a large mass timber project, and phasing techniques. Site logistics, quality management, field production, and erection details are also discussed.
