Land8 Webinar: LED Lighting - Using Design, Understanding Technology, Embracing Ecology with Brandon Renouf

Title: LED Lighting - Using Design, Understanding Technology, Embracing Ecology

Presenter: Brandon Renouf

Air Date: January 29, 2013, 10:30a–11:30a PST

Sponsored by:


Advanced technology has made LED-lighting a viable solution for outdoor environments. The unwanted side-effects of traditional lighting: wasted energy, maintenance costs, and the negative visual and environmental impacts of over-illumination, are driving the adoption of LED lighting for many projects. This session covers cutting edge information about human interaction with color, contrast, and glare that enhance the visual experience while protecting the environment. Brandon Renouf, IES, Lighting Engineer at Landscape Forms, will present concepts that leave participants armed to evaluate LED-lighting for future projects. Solid State/LED technology is an important facet to sustainable site design.

The participant will learn the following:

  • The definition of LED and why LEDs are a good choice for site furnishings
  • The adverse effects of using lighting that mimics daylight in regard to health and safety
  • The definition of the BUG rating and why it’s important to human health and safety
  • Why luminaire design and thermal management are so important in LED lighting design
  • Why the ability of a luminaire to render color is important to the visual experience

I was wondering if anybody out there had a formal or informal PM "break in" or training program. The PM programs that I've looked into don't really apply to landscape architecture. There's got to be something for architecture or another allied field…Continue
