IES Calgary: Annual Keynote Social: Light and Human Health: From Recommendations to Design to Construction (and Beyond)

Date Wed Mar 20 2024 - 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm Calendar Alberta

Presented by Dr. George C. Brainard, Ph.D., FIES and Kimberly R. Mercier, PE, LEED AP, CLEP, IES


Science has caught up and can now prove, what lighting practitioners have known in our hearts all along, that light is more: more important…more than vision…more than art…more than energy!

Lighting system technologies, paired with technology uptake in the population, have afforded the lighting design community the opportunity to consider affecting human health with electric light.

These considerations are in addition to the lighting for vision tasks the community has perfected over the past century, will change our energy templates and calculations and will find human efficiencies while respecting our understanding of the necessary integrations of work and life.

Application of human health considerations to the process of lighting design requires confidence in: interpretating research findings, translating research to application, understanding ramifications on client intent (energy, cost, finishes), and developing new specifications for LED products that will meet light and human health objectives.

In this presentation, the speakers will:

  • Provide insight to, and recommendations for, this new frontier of lighting design,
  • Identify the foundational information and resources that will help you with your job,
  • Share the opinions and perspectives of those representing multiple facets of the lighting industry – from researchers and design professionals to product manufacturers and construction industry leaders.
  • Provide suggestions for incorporating human health considerations in the lighting projects you are currently designing and building (and, suggestions for supporting those priorities and decisions through the punchlist and occupancy.)
  • New breakthroughs in light and human health will change how the design community thinks about lighting design, implementation, control, lighting product manufacturing and availability, and our decisions about the lighting energy we spend.

Discover exactly how “much more” light can be!
