PPD Workshop Question - Lighting Calcs (FC)


Regarding question (Part 2, Question #4): When choosing the the Foot Candle (FC) level for the conference rooms and laboratories, why did we choose the upper range of the Light Level FC count 50 and 120 respectively (from the Reference: Arch Toolbox - Recommended Lighting Levels in Buildings) as opposed to the lower range?

@coachlizschneider , Seth has a question about the #4 of the PPD workshop, do you mind explaining?

@sethmandel8 We chose the higher light level because the client wanted flexibility in their lighting design. By choosing the higher level you have more flexibility when it comes to laying out your light fixtures.

Makes perfect sense, thanks!
