Implementation in the Design Process:
Incorporate performance criteria into lighting design criteria in program document. Develop additional quality lighting criteria as needed for special facility issues. For example, security or anti-vandalism lighting may need to be incorporated into lighting considerations.
The design may be closer to the minimum recommended handbook illumination values to reduce the connected load and conserve energy; note that if this is the case the contrast ratios in become even more important to maintain, and the overall volumetric luminance should be considered.
Conduct a first order check during Design for design constraints on lighting design. Ensure that general daylighting schemes and lighting plans are not in conflict with achieving lighting quality and any additional lighting criteria.
During early design, as fixtures types and fixtures are being selected complete a lighting analysis and develop the lighting design in conformance with performance criteria. Perform any lighting modeling studies as needed to confirm or substitute for calculations.
During construction observe and verify that the room, window, finish, and lighting variables (upon which estimated compliance was based) are proceeding according to goals as reflected in drawings and specifications.
Conduct onsite measurements once all lighting is operational during construction administration.
