Core Sunlighting Illumination in Buildings - An Architectural Approach (SDCB280)


06 February 2013
Provider: The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada

This course is directed at Architects and allied built-environment professionals, and examines the application of core sunlighting approaches and technologies in commercial buildings as sustainable strategies to reduce costs, offset greenhouse gas, and provide a substantially improved indoor environment in workplaces.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Develop a common framework to define core sunlighting and its scope of application;
  • Review basic scientific principles of illumination, sunlight harvesting and distribution;
  • Develop methodologies to quantify performance and analyze the cost-benefits of core sunlighting strategies
  • Identify technical issues in deploying core sunlighting technologies within buildings; and
  • Conect the importance of utilizing core sunlighting in the built environment as a sustainable building strategy to support the sustainability goals common to many communities.

Delivered in a traditional classroom, the course will include case studies and visits to:

1 - BCIT Building NE#25 - Demonstration Site
2 - UBC Biological Science Building - Demonstration Site

Delegates will gather at 8:30am at BCIT's Burnaby campus and enjoy 1 - 2 hours of presentation. Delegates will then participate in a site tour of the technology on BCIT's Burnaby campus and then board a bus to UBC's Point Grey campus for a tour of the technology that is active on their campus.
