Organization: IES
Publication Date: 13 February 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 43
scope:

The scope of this Recommended Practice is restricted to learning and study activities and associated circulation areas. Other IES Recommended Practices (RPs) and Lighting Practice (LP) documents should be consulted for guidance on lighting for other, related spaces, such as administration and sports, and for strategies for daylighting, commissioning, and maintenance practices. The LPs are listed in the Foreword. Some of the applicable Recommended Practices include:

• ANSI/IES RP-1-20, Recommended Practice: Lighting Office Spaces3

• ANSI/IES RP-4-20, Recommended Practice: Lighting Library Spaces4

• ANSI/IES RP-6-20, Recommended Practice: Lighting Sports and Recreational Areas5

• ANSI/IES/NALMCO RP-36-20, Recommended Practice: Lighting Maintenance6

Because of the diversity of educational activities, it is not possible to provide comprehensive recommendations for every learning and study situation. In addition to classrooms and corridors, the many types of spaces in grade schools, high schools, and colleges include assembly halls, theaters, wet and dry labs, trade shops for woodworking or auto repair, and social spaces such as cafeterias and student and faculty lounges. While this Recommended Practice seeks to explain the principles of good lighting, it will always be necessary for the lighting designer to be cognizant of the educational process and individual facility needs.

This Recommended Practice is organized into three general parts:

Sections 1 through 7 - General, foundational information upon which the lighting design is based.

Sections 8 through 10 - Principles and recommendations for lighting educational facilities.
