The WELL Building Standard was designed as a reaction to increasing economic development that has resulted in increased human impact on the world. The WELL Building Standard is a performance-based system (developed by Cundall) for monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being. One of the areas looked at in this standard is the impact of lighting on health and well-being. WELL gives pre-conditions to achieve in order for a business to obtain certification and also offers further optimisations that can be adhered to in order to gain a higher level of certification.
GDS makes use of lighting calculation and visualisation software to give our clients a view of how a space can be improved with architectural lighting and controls. There are several variations of software to choose from but at GDS we choose to use DIALux Evo. Using DIALux Evo we can mimic spaces at a site by just using a sketch in DIALux Evo. GDS can import pre-made CAD plans, and add windows, doors, furniture, colours & textures, suspended ceilings and roofs to improve the accuracy of the forecast lumen distribution.
