About the Event

Please note that this is a past event.

The world of lighting design is changing rapidly. Alongside continual technological advancements, the codes and laws that govern the design and construction of lighting systems are being progressively improved. New laws, stricter codes, and new Department of Buildings filing requirements now effect most all New York City spaces.

Green Light New York has developed a concise and vital three-part series of presentations on how to meet and exceed these new lighting requirements. Offered in 90 minute segments, the presentations cover 1) the laws and regulations themselves, 2) strategies for applying the new requirements to lighting retrofit projects, and 3) demystifying lighting controls. The courses have been developed with the assistance of an extremely knowledgeable advisory group and have been very well received in previous deliveries.

Instructor: Moreno Tagliapetra 

New Lighting Regulations
 will be at 9:00 AM, and Lighting Controls will be 1:30PM.

The instructor of Lighting Retrofits will cover the following:

- Retrofitting Lighting Systems for Energy Savings & Code Compliance

- Good, better, best strategies

- Redesign vs. Retrofit

- Sources of funding, rebates & incentives

The courses in the series are independent; attend one or all, in any order. Previous deliveries of these courses sold out quickly and were very well reviewed.

Each course provides 1.5 AIA HSW/SD learning units. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
