About the Topic:
Today’s building designs are often required to conform to an increasing number of performance levels and standards for providing energy efficiency, controlling air and water migration, avoiding condensation, and providing good lighting through the optimized use of artificial and natural day-lighting. Windows that were selected for their water tightness and thermal resistance ratings are also being selected (or rejected) on the basis of the amount of daylight they will admit into the living space. There are limitations to how much of the natural daylight can be successfully admitted into our interior spaces, so we need to employ methods that optimize the utilization of the available light, and artificial lighting methods that will properly compliment the daylight throughout the year. To tackle these issues requires both a theoretical approach and great amount of experience to achieve the desired results. Tony is well versed on this subject and has a wealth of experience from an impressive project record. Please join the members and guests of the Vancouver Island B C Building Envelope Council and take in this informative presentation on fulfilling today’s diverse and sometimes, competing requirements for day lighting design
