The Florida Architects Political Action Committee (FAPAC) supports advocacy on behalf of Florida architects. The purpose of FAPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by architects help elect candidates who understand and support your interests. Advocacy and grassroots engagement are the keys to protecting your practice.
ADVOCACY gives us a seat at the table ... FAPAC gives us a voice.
JULY CE WEBINAR
AIA/LEED /IDCEC/ Health/ Acoustic Layers/ Optics
and Lighting Game
Your game show host and lightologist Therese Lahaie together with a lighting designer present the technology and implementation on projects that show you how to improve lighting in residential, commercial, and public projects. We will guide you through the quality of light metrics to affordably improve health & wellbeing at home, lighting layers enhancing dimensionality of your projects, and optics & acoustic technologies, all developed by respected lighting manufacturers.
We are combining 50-minute Innovators in LED Lighting training that ends with a fun 10-minute interactive quiz show and prizes (a $50.00 gift card).
AIA learning objectives:
1. Identify two ways that the quality of light properties of LED products improve, health and well-being for residential and commercial environments.
2. Observe the four lighting layers and what types of products are required to make the spaces you design look three-dimensional.
3. Recognize innovations in optics technology to reduce fixture count, improve lighting levels and save energy.
4. Identify three key properties of successful acoustical lighting solutions.
