Vice President of the Society of Lighting and Lighting and Founding Partner of Lux Populi UK Ltd. – Title: Lighting for People, Architecture, the Planet and the 30 year time horizon – The design of good station lighting has become more complex over the last ten plus years, our major stations are Cathedrals of Transport containing shopping centres and rivalling airport terminals, our minor stations are transport hubs requiring a welcoming safe environment. The TOC has legitimate objectives in energy and maintenance cost reduction whilst electrification adds additional constraints on where we can put the fittings. Add to this development of LED has given rise to a huge retrofit market replacing established lamp technologies and an attendant rise in new companies to supply them.  So who to trust and which Metrics to use?  When your old scheme lasted 20 to 30 years, how do you judge your replacement scheme when it was sold on the time horizon of its 3 year pay back or 5 year warranty?  Bob explains how the members and publications of the Society of Light and Lighting, the lighting arm of CIBSE provide the advice to ensure you achieve a best practice lighting scheme.
