Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 11:15

This paper outlines the principal architectural and functional considerations for good lighting design in transport buildings drawn from past work experiences in multidisciplinary infrastructure projects such as Crossrail in London.  Reference is also made to recent industry publications, including previously published articles on the lighting design by the Crossrail Line Wide design team and the Society of Light & Lighting “LG15: Transport Buildings” published by the SLL (CIBSE). The paper also draws on the speaker’s personal experience as a Lighting Designer in the GIA Equation team for the Crossrail Line Wide scope.
