LIVE SESSION (available on-demand at a later date) When it comes to the lighting design process, even seasoned professionals may not always be aware of all those involved outside of their own industry. From architects and engineers to manufacturers, distributors, product reps, and contractors—lighting design involves the expertise of numerous professionals across all fields. Ensuring successful lighting design means ensuring that all players involved are aware of what others are contributing at what stage of the process. “Demystifying” the roles, value, and expectations of all involved opens the door for more effective communication and specifications—critical to the delivery of a successful project that is consistent with the original design intentions. This workshop aims to equip both emerging and seasoned professionals with a better understanding of the process, greater confidence in their interactions with others involved, and a clear path to improving the specifications they provide.
Compare the various project delivery methods. The pros and cons of each project method will be reviewed through the lens of impact on the lighting design, procurement, and construction process.
Gain an understanding of what entities are involved in these project delivery methods, and at what phase they participate.
Examine the strengths and weaknesses in construction documents and review what can be done to ensure that the design intent is maintained throughout the process.
Illustrate how an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of team members involved in the lighting and construction process will allow designers to better control the execution of their design.
