European Experience and Training Centre Tour
This tour of the Lutron European Experience and Training Cente at Finsbury Square, London, lasts one and a half hours. During the tour you will learn about the basics of lighting from different types of light bulbs to different ways to dim. With the prominence of LEDs in the market you will learn what makes up a LED and what to look for to ensure you achieve the desired result. You will also learn about total light management controlling both artificial and natural light. You will be shown best practices for creating scenes and trends in lighting design and the benefits of automated window treatments, the effects of different types of fabrics, and various installation applications. Undertaking the tour will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the basics of lighting types and how to best dim different sources
- Understand how to properly dim LEDs and best practices
- Understand what a lighting control system is and what it can do to enhance projects
- Understand how the seamless integration of automated window treatments enhances a space
- Understand how to pick the best fabric for various applications
- Understand and be able to convey the benefits of the precision control of daylight and electric light
The tour is by invitation only and the maximum number of attendees is 25. Book directly with Matthew Jacks at mjacks@lutron.com, t: 07580 925820

This seminar explains how to solve these problems at the specification and design-stage and how to plan for a successful installation. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the history of the LED and advantages of this light-source
- Understand LED control challenges, what causes flicker, low-end instability, dead-travel and other problems
- Understand LED lighting as a system and how to solve LED switching and in-rush problems
- Understand how to design for compatibility for dimming systems
- Understand where to find free LED laboratory test data

Seminar
Total light management for commercial buildings
This presentation will cover lighting control in the office space. We will review the fundamentals of lighting control in this space, the economic and social motivators for lighting control in offices, and we will apply lighting control to the key spaces within in an office and outline the benefits.

Light is very powerful and includes controlling the impact of the sun on a space as much as control of the electric light. A good balance of sunlight (and resulting glare) and electric light creates a more idealised environment for both comfort and energy efficiency.

Seminar
Fabric and Tapestries - How to Choose the Best Solar Protection for Windows: Fabric Blinds
Choosing the right fabric is essential to ensuring cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and aesthetically pleasing solution.
By selecting the right fabric you can increase daylight harvesting and in turn, reduce electric light consumption. Occupants’ comfort and productivity can be greatly improved with greater glare control. Additionally, codes and standards such as BREEAM and LEED can be exceeded by maximising energy efficiency, daylight and views, and environmentally-friendly materials.
Once you have attended our CPD you will be able to:
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages between fabric materials and compositions
• Identify various weave patterns and structures
• Recognise commonly referenced solar performance terminology
• Understand what factors and variables can affect the performance of a solar screen fabric
• Determine how to choose the best fabric considering a project’s priorities or site analysis
