Electrical Considerations:
 Reducing lighting loads by:
1. Reducing ambient footcandle (or lux) levels to 30 35 FC (323 377 lux) in general open offices by
using pendent hung, indirect/direct lighting fixtures;
2. Using energy efficient fluorescent lighting fixtures;
3. Using occupancy daylight sensors for light fixture control.
 Basing design on more accurate (lower) assessments of plug load.
 Using variable speed drives.
 Using energy efficient outdoor site lighting.
It is important when considering various Sustainable Design features that the A/E maintain a holistic approach
