Session 1
8:55am Welcome from the chairman
9:00am 30 Rules of LightingThe general principles of lighting as compiled by Lux Review editor Ray Molony. Accepted orthodoxies, maxims and truisms of artificial lighting that won’t make you a lighting designer but will help create a much-better-than-average scheme.
9:30am LED lamps and tubes – top tech or time-bomb? Retrofitting incandescent, halogen and fluorescent tubes with their LED equivalent seems to offer an immediate way to make energy savings – but are you instead creating a time-bomb and a maintenance nightmare? Here, lighting expert Paul Reading of CP Lighting outlines dangers and pitfalls and shows you how to make the right choices for your estate.
10:00am How to buy LEDsProcuring LED lighting is a whole different ball game to buying traditional lighting sources. Here, David Mudd of lighting performance and safety laboratory Lux-TSI outlines what to look for, how to read a data sheet, how to get value for money, how to de-risk the purchase, and how to put the right questions to your supplier.
10:45am Coffee and networking
Session 2
11:10amThe University Challenge: reducing maintenance costs whilst keeping staff and students safe. Matt Rogers of Eaton takes a look at some real life University projects to illustrate how central battery systems and automatic testing can take the pain out of managing large estates, and seamlessly integrate emergency lighting into a cohesive lighting scheme.
11.40amProject Uncovered: Ealing Hospital Simon Allard of Dextra will look at an NHS bespoke retrofit; product variant requirements, what was replaced, logistics, service and finally how the installation changed the lit environment.
12.25pm Lunch
Session 3Technology and development
1:30pm Retrofit masterclass: Getting it right in a large roll-out LED retrofits are a doddle, right? Wrong!! The concept appears easy but the application is in truth very complex and needs knowledge and effort to make it a success. Here Simon Waldron of Urban Jungle Energy & Engineering – part of the team behind Sainsbury’s £100m lighting roll-out – takes us on a step-by-step journey on how to get it right first time and maximise the returns on your investment.
2:00pmHow to retrofit controls Is it possible to retrofit lighting controls? Can a system be implemented across a multi-building, multi-location site? What are the advantages of wireless technologies? What are the security implications? Colin Shockledge of Harvard outline the options.
2.30pmPanel Discussion: Developing a lighting strategy Experts Chris Barnes of London South Bank University, Jennifer Neal of British Gas and Dan Simkus of Breathe Energy discuss how to develop a lighting strategy that is right for your estate. What are the pitfalls? How do you manage a framework supplier? Do you outsource maintenance? How do you conduct a lighting audit?
3:15pm Coffee and networking
Session 4
3.45pmHow to improve your circulation areas All the attention is on the foyer, the restaurant and the lecture theatre. But how you do light the less glamorous areas of your estate to best effect and best value: the toilets, the plant rooms, the stairwells, the corridors, the car parks, the bike sheds? Neil Foster and Victoria Sadler of Couch Perry Wilkes shares their knowledge.
4:15pm How IoT can really benefit facilities managers Experts are predicting that lighting will soon be part of the "Internet of Things", a data harvesting and communications network that connects and manages building services and functions. Alan Syme of Mitie and Stephen Hurrell of Aurora explain lighting 3.0 and the connected, intelligent lighting system.
4:45pm Panel Discussion: Is connected lighting really the future? There’s been lots of talk in the lighting industry about how lighting will connect to the so-called ‘Internet of Things’. Will this really happen? What are the benefits and challenges? What are the implications for facilities managers? With former Sainsbury's lighting expert, Simon Waldron and experts Richard Felgate of Enstrat, Tony Howells and Jon Couch of GOOEE.
5:15pmNetworking drinks reception Delegates, sponsors and the team from Lux Review can discuss the day’s deliberations and network over drinks in this special debrief party.
