CRES38: Planning for Whole Building Lighting Controls and Integration (Schedule Session)

Event Information

Course Description:

This class focuses on whole building integration and controls will offer designers a conceptual, high-level overview of connected buildings and key control systems. This course will focus on the basics of each system and how to effectively communicate concepts to clients, vendors, and other members of the design team. Integrating lighting, controls, shading, AV, BMS/BAS software, and other connected systems involves multiple disciplines, and the technical knowledge can often seem overwhelming. This aims to consolidate and conceptualize, supporting the designer or project manager in strategically coordinating responsibility and offering the most value for each client.

Learning Objectives: 

Understand the most common connected building systems and why it’s important for them to talk with each other

Define the most common methods of building communication and apply these concepts to any system or protocol
