Lighting is a critical issue in the workplace – a key factor in comfort and productivity for individuals and in maintenance requirements and energy costs for organisations.
Installed systems are often ignored as long as their performance is ‘good enough’; but an analysis of quality and running costs could well uncover opportunities to improve both, given the steady progress in product development. In addition, no-cost measures such as encouraging people to switch off when they leave an area can produce worthwhile savings.
Workplace lighting is a big subject. Each of our specially commissioned features spans across the issues – design, user comfort, energy efficiency, new product development – in insightful and complementary ways.
