Sustainable Lighting

Hosted in partnership with Illuminating Engineering Society – St. Louis Section.

Online registration for this event is now closed. Walk-in registrants welcomed.

Explore lighting and its role in sustainability-focused building design and operations, specifically in relation to LEED v4 with an emphasis on materials credits.

This seminar, intended for both building design and lighting professionals, will introduce attendees to the various material transparency disclosures and optimizations currently available, using lighting as a framework of understanding. Additionally, participants will explore the importance of lighting in ‘whole building” lifecycle impacts management, predominant lamp technologies and energy related life cycle impacts, and lighting considerations for human health and thriving.

A general summary of terminology will be included during this course hour, so that attendees feel confident in asking for, and using the information within the available transparency material disclosures. We will underscore the basics, such as life cycle analyses, environmental impact categories of EPD, “Red Listed Ingredients of Concern,” responsible sourcing and supply chain, and third party verified platforms.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
