*TAKE 2* OAA & ARIDO CEU – FRIDAY MAY 1ST: Technology to Specifications & Procurement: Get the Lighting You Want​

May 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT

​Audience: Architects, Engineers, Interior Designers
Presenter: Deborah Gottesman, P.Eng., MBA, LC, Assoc.IALD
Principal of Gottesman Associates – an award-winning architectural lighting design firm

Why is it so difficult to get what you want when it comes to lighting? Architects’ common grievances include that fixture technology is confusing, lighting controls don’t work as expected, and the procurement process seems mired in mystery. The good news is that this doesn’t have to be the case, and this seminar will help you make sense of it. First, we will deconstruct the industry, the players and their roles. Who adds value? What does the lighting distributor do? Where does the money go? Then we will navigate through the design process. How does one prepare an accurate lighting budget? The causes of cost overrun, will be uncovered and resolved. Finally, the seminar will launch a bold new approach to procurement with case studies that unlock the mystery and illustrate how you can, indeed, get what you want.

In this course you will learn:
1. develop an understanding of the lighting industry and where to find added value,
2. discover new steps that enable complete and coordinated construction packages,
3. learn the about the importance of an accurate lighting budget, and how to avoid value engineering, and
4. be exposed to a different model for procurement.

NOTE: In order to earn a CEU credit you must be logged into the presentation for at least 45 minutes.
