Daylighting the Right Way

The use of natural light into modern building design, commonly known as daylighting, has become an increasingly popular construction technique that can improve energy performance in any building while simultaneously improving the comfort and productivity of building occupants. Natural daylighting systems have even been proven to increase retail sales when compared to retail spaces that rely exclusively on artificial lighting.

The benefits of daylight harvesting lighting systems are so significant that some buildings are now required to have at least 25% of the occupied floor space located in a daylighting zone equipped with automatic controls per the International Green Construction Code.
