Big Double Header CPD, Light & Air
Light is vital. Light is poetic. Light provides atmosphere and orientation. People use light as a way of creating places to enjoy. Light is the fourth dimension of architecture.
ERCO specialises in architectural lighting. We see ourselves as selling light, not luminaires. This approach has been the trademark of our work for many years and results in designing lighting tools for the user that satisfy all the technical and economical requirements of lighting practice, while at the same time opening up the whole fascination and magic of that 'immaterial material' known as light.
'Language of Light' seminar covers the philosophies of Richard Kelly and their implications on the design process from a lighting perspective and discuss how they can be used as a simple communication tool between you and your clients. The workshop covers recent developments in technology but with a focus on providing a balance between efficiency and visual comfort. The presentation is based on the simple concepts of architectural lighting.
Big Ass Fans
Air conditioning is great – but it’s expensive and can be horrifically inefficient. The Big Ass Solutions presentation will explain how using elevated air speed in conjunction with air conditioning can be more efficient and cost effective. Fans use a fraction of the energy of HVAC and understanding how this can reduce energy consumption and how to design more efficient thermally comfortable spaces are key in an environmentally conscious world.
