Impact of Daylighting and Space Planning on Building and Workplace Performance

The concept of incorporating daylighting in architectural design is certainly nothing new, yet it still seems to be overlooked in too many of today’s space planning and design discussions. Attend DesignColumbus session 302 to learn the benefits that combining daylighting strategies with effective space planning can provide to a project and its stakeholders, and help raise the awareness of the overwhelming impact natural light can have upon interior environments.

The presenters will discuss general rules of thumb that should be considered when implementing daylighting strategies. Interior space planning strategies that increase the effectiveness of daylighting while also providing additional indoor environmental quality benefits will be presented. Additionally, the thoughtful integration of daylighting with artificial lighting design and controls will be explored. Last will be a discussion of a real world example of the impact that implementation of these strategies has had upon AEP’s work environment.
