AIA/IES/IDCEC Training

Lunch and Learn

The technical and aesthetic uses of LED lighting are addressed in this AIA/IDCEC training focused on what matters to designers, and how this knowledge will improve the final design project. Because LED lighting is not limited to design solutions, its diverse capacity addresses sustainability, energy efficiency, and human concerns. The training is full of stunning application shots illustrating LED lighting solutions in retail, commercial, hospitality, and public art applications.

The content of the training includes, but is not limited to: how the qualities of daylight are translated through LED technology, demonstrations that provide a direct experience of light including color temperature and color rendering index useful for various design applications and an understanding of how lighting layers enhance the 3 dimensionality of the built environment. The training closes with a review of the knowledge that will enable designers to skillfully employ the essential use of light in their own work.

Throughout the presentation there are questions to engage the learners as we address the learning objectives. Product demonstrations clearly illustrate design and engineering innovation, quality of light concerns that relate to architectural space. Learners are engaged by the use of metaphorical language that makes technical subject matter comprehensible.

Due to the popularity of Innovators in LED Lighting, firms invite us back!! We are asked to speak at professional design association events like the DLF, ASID, AIA and NKBA.

If your group would like to polish your lighting knowledge.. please be in touch!

AIA, IES, IDCEC Trainings

Apparatus Design is an AIA (HSW)/IES/IDCEC- educational provider offering LED lighting technical trainings.  Innovators in LED Lighting gives designers fluency in LED lighting technology through demonstration of LED products across applications. The lighting industry updates continuously, and our goal is to keep designers up to date. This education enables designers to guide clients towards informed decisions about LED lighting and increases the understanding of quality of light required to make design projects 100% successful.

Innovators in LED Lighting is approximately 45 minutes in length and is fun, interactive. Throughout the presentation there are questions to engage designers as we address the learning objectives. Product demonstrations clearly illustrate design and engineering innovation, quality of light concerns and the lighting layers that enhance architectural spaces. 

There is a brief question & response session at the end of the training. 

The extensive research conducted in preparing the Innovators in LED Lighting presentation provides practical guidance for specifiers to gain fluency in LED Lighting technology.

Lighting Layers Class

Thoughtful use of lighting can express and enhance the architectural statement. In this course we’ll present the layers you can use to add depth and subtlety to your architectural composition, and some exciting updates in LED technology that can improve occupant satisfaction and comfort. Product demonstrations that provide a direct understanding of how lighting layers enhance the 3 dimensionality of the built environment. A practical application by course participants will conclude the class.

Here are the AIA learning objectives of the presentation:

  • Identify the four lighting layers needed to make the spaces you design look 3 dimensional.
     
  • Identify the benefits of color tunable LED lighting for office, school, retail and hospitality applications
     
  • Identify 3 ways that knowledge of quality of light in LED Lighting improves the final design project.
     
  • What are the biggest technical challenges of for LED lighting manufacturers and how are these challenges addressed?

What Designers Are Saying About Us:

Thanks for coming in to speak to our office about LEDs. It’s great to keep tabs on the evolving technology and see who the recommended manufacturers are. Much appreciated! Keep in touch!

-Lynne Miyamoto, AIA, LEED® AP ID+C Associate, Gensler-SF

Innovators in LED is a great presentation to the how’s and why’s of LED Lighting. From the basic, yet technical, “How LEDs work.” to the advanced “Why fixture color temperature matters to engineers.”, the Innovators in LED presentation takes you from the basics to advanced topics quickly and logically. The technical knowledge of LED luminaries and inherent LED diversity is critical to any engineer.

-Andy Record, RCDD Project Manager, Affiliated Engineers Inc

I wanted to thank you for your presentation regarding LED technology. Your presentation was very helpful to expand our understanding of the resources available to us as we select and specify LED products. I was especially impressed by your prompt follow up in the days following the presentation to provide additional materials in response to our questions. Thank you very much!
