Light and Us

12:05 PM - 01:05 PM

During the course of human evolution exposure to natural lighting conditions has conditioned neurological stimuli that regulate numerous biological functions. Circadian Rhythm, rooted in the Latin for “around the day”, is a term describing the entrained cyclical processes used to sustain most living organisms. The changing spectral distribution characteristics of the sun and the onset of night have been a key influence on how the retina has evolved to become a primary source of sensory stimulus effecting the production and inhibition of hormones essential to Circadian balance. Disruption of Circadian Rhythm (our natural cycles) can have deleterious effects on our health and wellbeing, particularly our patterns of sleep. Many of our built environments have created unnatural conditions for its occupants. Research has shown that poor illumination, of the spaces we occupy, can contribute to the disruption of our natural cycles. With the advent of Solid State Lighting (LED) and “nature emulating design” we can transform the environments that we occupy. This course explores ways of applying “Circadian Balanced Illumination™, Biophilic Design and WELL Building lighting principles to invigorate the human condition and benefit our cognition, health and wellbeing. The course is approved for AIA Health, Safety and Welfare CEU and NCQLP LC CEU.

PreFabricated Fireproof Columns

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Structural fire protection guards essential structural components from the devastating effects of fire. This course examines the various active and passive fireproof methods that are available with a focus on the features, types, and design considerations of prefabricated fireproof structural columns designed for exposed exterior and interior load-bearing columns. We also discuss Glass Fireproof Columns and possible applications.

Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Optimizing Healing Environments using IGU with Integrated Louvers

02:30 PM - 03:30 PM

Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare, and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include:


• A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc.


• A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows) to reduce glare and optimize thermal efficiencies.


• A move toward improved air quality and away from curtains and blinds that collect dust, are not hygienic and require regular cleaning/maintenance.


• A desire to better attenuate sound for optimal tranquility.


This course will review options for privacy, lighting and sound control, and will further detail recent case studies from several leading healthcare facilities. It will also illustrate how good design can dampen noise and create a healing environment that is less stressful and more restful for patients.
