Mastering the Maze of Lighting Controls Specification

February 23, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


With so many different types of systems and requirements, how do you get what you really want from lighting controls? Designers and architects need to consider the visual environment they are creating as well as the operational characteristics of the systems being installed. Design teams now often find themselves faced with questions of how to create a level of interoperability and digital integration with adjacent building systems that was not so commonplace in the recent past. Fortunately, the tools exist to articulate both the designer’s intent and the specific steps required to achieve that intent. By examining the development process behind the Control Intent Narrative and the Sequence of Operations, this seminar will provide guidance for assembling these documents and specific examples of language that is both clear and contractually enforceable.

  • Understand roles and responsibilities of various team members as they apply to lighting control specification
  • Distinguish between Control Intent Narratives and Sequences of Operation, and how to use each to reduce pain points and meet the Owner’s Project Requirements
  • Use the newly published ANSI/IES Document LP-16 to support contractually enforceable language in control specification
  • Provide successful examples of controls documentation for a range of projects, from the simplicity of meeting code to the newest interoperable lighting enabling integration with digital technologies of high value to owners and tenants
