Office worker response to an automated venetian blind and electric lighting system: A pilot study

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A prototype integrated, dynamic building envelope and lighting system designed to optimize daylight admission and solar heat gain rejection on a real-time basis in a commercial office building is evaluated. Office worker response to the system and occupant-based modifications to the control system are investigated to determine if the design and operation of the prototype system can be improved. Key findings from the study are: (1) the prototype integrated envelope and lighting system is ready for field testing, (2) most office workers (N=14) were satisfied with the system, and (3) there were few complaints. Additional studies are needed to explain ... continued below

Additional studies are needed to explain how illuminance distribution, lighting quality, and room design can affect workplans illuminance preferences.
