DAYLIGHTING FOR INDUSTRIAL SPACES

 

Natural Light benefits the productivity and quality of work in factories through improved visual acuity and connections to circadean rythmns.  In addition to work performance gains, natural lighitng can contribute to better health, fewer sick days, and reduced turnover (similar to gains experienced in retail, office, and educational settings).

 

Independent Research on Daylight

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University led by Vivian Loftness, FAIA, and Volker Hartkopf, PhD, have screened literally hundreds of studies related to the health and human benefits of green buildings. Among their findings: Twelve studies that indicate that improved lighting design enhances individual productivity between 0.7-23%.2".

“'Performance improvement from individual factors—ventilation, temperature, daylighting, etc.—may be as much as 3-5% each', says Syracuse University’s Ed Bogucz, PhD, director of the Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, but 'multiple factors may produce impacts in the 15-20% range'".
