Webinar: Pathogen Reduction for the Modern Age: UV and Near-UV as Disinfection Aids (AIA, HSW)

Date Wed Oct 14 2020 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Calendar Alberta

Presented by Acuity Brands

Description:

This presentation will discuss the use of Germicidal UV (and some non-UV) technologies that may be deployed to reduce pathogens in public spaces. Various technological solutions will be explored – reviewing their history of use, discussing how they work and their effectiveness for typical commercial applications that we see today. Additionally, design considerations and techniques will be discussed in depth for applying UV disinfection technology safely and effectively, incorporating luminaire concepts to supplement the delivery of general ambient illumination. The presentation will also highlight most recent advances in UV disinfection technology that offer more targeted capabilities for today’s specific pathogen reduction needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the ability and effectiveness of ultraviolet (and some near-UV) sources to reduce pathogens on surfaces and in air and water.
  • Describe how pathogen reduction with a UV or near-UV source is calculated differently than illumination with a visible light source.
  • Distinguish various ultraviolet and near-ultraviolet wavelengths for use in occupied or unoccupied spaces and discuss how these technologies may be deployed for the least design-disruptive and most cost-effective manner.
  • Identify the potential impacts of misapplied ultraviolet and near-ultraviolet sources.

Webinar: New paradigms in photobiology: Redefining Photosynthetic Photons (CEU)

Date Thu Oct 15 2020 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am Calendar Alberta

Presented by Bruce Bugbee, Utah State University

Description:

Here I review the emerging evidence that far-red photons (700-750) have photosynthetic activity and should be included in our definition of photosynthetic photons. This has profound implications for all of plant science.

Join our panel of experts to learn more about the emerging, and ever-changing, trends in commercial offices.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how you can reduce your lighting operation costs and take advantage of the QIP “Qualified Improvement Property” tax.
  • Explain how you update your sequence of operation to include touchless interfaces, reduce energy costs, aid in building code compliance, occupant comfort.
  • Summarize the benefits of daylighting within an office space and how it can promote occupational well-being.

Webinar: “To Light, or Not to Light?”: Developing Lighting Concepts (CEU)

Date Thu Nov 19 2020 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am Calendar Alberta

Presented by Deborah Gottesman, P.Eng., MBA, LC, Assoc.IALD

Description:

What is lighting design, and why does focusing on lighting layouts fall short? Lighting layouts are not the same as lighting design. Quality lighting design begins with concept development – a form of programming for the visual environment that considers many elements such as perception, contrast, and visibility. This seminar outlines the steps taken on various diverse projects to address those essentials and create the desired mood, atmosphere, and functionality.

The case studies span different sectors, from heritage to retail to residential, and identify the range of challenges that good design can help overcome, with many universal lessons.
