Office Lighting

What is the best Office Lighting Simulation Software?

GDS uses lighting calculation and visualisation software to give our clients a view on how a workplace can be improved with office lighting and controls. There are alternatives to choose from but at GDS we choose to use DIALux Evo. DIALux Evo enables GDS to simulate rooms at a site using a pre-made sketch in DIALux Evo and can import CAD plans, as well as adding; windows, doors (whilst simulating their effect), furniture, colours & textures, suspended ceilings and roofs to improve the accuracy of the forecast lumen distribution. DIALux Evo also enables the importing of luminaire fixtures into a plan by using pre-made catalogues. From there you can insert and arrange luminaires in the space and produce calculations to give an overview of their effect.

Office Lighting Standards and Regulations

In any build there are regulations and standards that need to be met. Lighting has its own set of rules. In terms of standards (which are suggested goals rather than enforceable law) there are a few that are prominent, at GDS we use our knowledge to make certain that your project meets these. CIBSE’s office lighting guide, ‘LG7’ focuses on minimum lumen levels across a range of spaces in the workplace. Adhering to LG7 guidelines should ensure that lighting is comfortable, safe for working conditions and provides stimulation. Find out more on office lighting regs here -
