Program Level: This is a level 200 program. Intended for individuals familiar with green building principles and practices.
Who Should Come: Individuals involved in the building design, construction and renovation industries, especially those who are interested in optimizing daylighting to reduce energy consumption and enhance occupant comfort and productivity.
"When properly designed and effectively integrated with the electric lighting system, daylighting can offer significant energy savings by offsetting a portion of the electric lighting load. A related benefit is the reduction in cooling capacity and use by lowering a significant component of internal gains. In addition to energy savings, daylighting generally improves occupant satisfaction and comfort. Windows also provide visual relief, a contact with nature, time orientation, the possibility of ventilation, and emergency egress."

Daylighting has the potential to significantly reduce energy consumption, improve life-cycle cost, and increase occupant productivity and wellbeing. In light of the inherent value of strategic daylighting design, dont miss the opportunity to join GRTs own Holly Wasilowski as she presents a 2.0-hour intro-level training on the principles of daylighting for buildings.
