The HCNW Lighting Paper: Lighting for Health & Wellbeing, the Well Standard and SLL Guide LG7
The office work space environment is rapidly changing - hot desking and a variety of IT screen technologies are now widespread.
These technologies are key drivers behind LG 7 (2015), but additionally Sophia will explain the Well Standard for buildings, which appeared in 2016. The Well Standard has some similarities to LG 7 and other recommendations. But it sets an important additional requirement - consideration of melanopic* lighting at work stations.
Questions Sophia will raise in this seminar, at this appropriately tranquil venue, are:
Can we blend LG 7 and the Well Standard together ?
Is current technology tried and tested ?
How would we set about designing and delivering a validated solution ?
*The concept of melanopic vision acknowledges that beyond visual perception, light has biological impacts too. The hormone melatonin influences our pattern of wakefulness and sleep, commonly known as our circadian rhythm. Blue-rich lighting can suppress production of meltonin during the day and the demise of blue-rich light at night thus encourages melatonin production, and sleep. There is an SLL Masterclass series of similar interest.
Space is very limited - be considerate and cancel your ticket please if you can't attend.
The start time is 18:30
Organiser: Chris Jones
The Religous Society of Friends (Quakers) is a charitable trust which offers HCNW the room at an extremely reasonable cost.
FOOD & REFRESHMENTS: The Region will arrange a vegetarian pizza delivery and soft drinks.
HELP APPRECIATED: Before you leave, our volunteers would much appreciate help tidying up, washing up and drying up.
CIBSE IS A CHARITY. It supports the delivery of art and science to the wider public. So as policy, HCNW Region seeks out charity venues, not only to maximise the number of events the Region can run within its limited CIBSE grant, but also to pursue CIBSE's charitable objects - by supporting other charities serving wider society.
FUNDING: This event is fully-funded by CIBSE HCNW Region from its charitable grant.
ANY QUESTIONS: Please read the details below. "Contact The Organiser" which is quickest (there's a link on this page) rather than CIBSE HQ, thank you.

When & Where
CIBSE Home Counties North West Region
We are a regional branch of CIBSE, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers - Registered Charity No: 278104.
CIBSE supports the art (including craft) and science of building services engineering.
HCNW supports CIBSE Members with technical seminars, visits and screenings, amenable networking building up local communities of practice broadly in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, part of Surrey and part of London.
Events which are arranged by CIBSE HCNW are:
- Modern, public, freely open - and welcoming - to all*
- Freely published, accessible to the wider public by search engine*
- Always aligned to CIBSE's charitable objects
- Advertised to all and co-ordinated, months in advance
- Valuable for professional development - and tomorrow's projects
- Look at major societal issues in an uncertain world
- We also do the technology - the art (craft) as well as science
- And help develop "well-rounded engineers" and inform the public
- Our events are not dominated by industry or commercial impulse
- We are inclusive, diverse and positively welcome the general public
- Wide range of speakers and interesting debates - a HCNW speciality
- We offer incidental networking and a sociable environment
- HCNW is a way of feeding your ideas into CIBSE
HCNW is run by elected volunteers - in fact, engineers in a wide range of building services specialisms - and has well-established links with WiBSE - Women in Building Services Engineering, CIBSE-FM and the CIBSE-CHP DH Group, as well as IET Surrey and IET Buckinghamshire. Our audience is mixed and diverse.
Some of our events are invitation only and not publicly displayed, where circumstances or security require that attendees have to be registered with CIBSE or another institution.
HCNW events have long featured debate about the wider issues, which affect technical solutions and question established norms. In addition to seminars of technical interest in building services engineering, we have been looking ahead: Big Data, Cybersecurity, the Future of Institutions, Resource Efficiency and other emerging issues. The Region was the first to run wide-spectrum seminars on Inclusivity (diversity) and some unusual seminars on soft skills.
As policy, HCNW seeks to support charitable venues and charitable caterers wherever possible.

Other Joint Events
Some additional events are advertised for Home Counties North West Region as joint events, which are worth looking out for.
The Region welcomes any joint events with associated groups, but the elected Region Committee is only responsible for the events and joint events shown on this Eventbrite platform. HCNW does not organise any social events, parties or galas, but our charitable events all involve networking in a convivial person-to-person community.
