COMMERCIAL LIGHTING DESIGN / DIALUX COURSE
Lighting adds emotion to spaces and makes the difference between a mere building and a vibrant, living place where people meet and interact with each other.
Our Commercial Lighting Design course shows participants how to use the DIALUX lighting design program, from installation of software, basic room design through to irregular rooms with furniture and other basic building elements; offices, industrial buildings, car parks and roadways; incorporating CAD drawings into DIALUX; emergency lighting; energy-saving lighting control systems (analog and digital), and spill lighting control.
