Earn free AIA and GBCI Continuing Education Credits while learning about Tubular Daylighting Devices

Solatube International, Inc. sponsors two Continuing Education courses:

Introduction to Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs)

AIA Credit: 1 LU/HSW
GBCI Credit: 1 CE
Subjects: Daylighting, Lighting, Energy Efficiency
Learn about the latest advanced optical daylighting technology and the product category Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) which makes daylighting a space as easy as applying traditional lighting equipment.  After a brief overview of typical daylighting strategies and key energy and human performance based reasons for daylighting today’s buildings, the audience is introduced to the three technology zones that are common to every TDD.  Commercially available component technologies are compared and contrasted, allowing the designer to make informed decisions when choosing the appropriate TDD technology for their application.

Achieving Sustainable Design Goals with TDDs
AIA Credit: 1 LU/HSW
GBCI Credit: 1 CE
Daylighting has become one of the fastest growing sustainable building strategies in the last few years due to its simple application, significant cost savings and its ability to create healthy, enjoyable work and living spaces.  This course is designed to demonstrate the available daylighting applications and discuss how optical daylighting strategies, in particular, exceed the minimum LEED requirements for daylighting.  The course will also review how daylight has contributed to projects that have reached their sustainable design goals, including achievement of LEED status. Concludes with a discussion regarding the importance of daylighting in zero energy buildings – the next phase in sustainable design.
