Complete with checklists and forms, this step-by-step guide tells everything the facilities management professional needs to know about conducting lighting surveys and audits in a commercial or industrial facility. Lighting audits are required when companies undertake lighting retrofits and related projects in order to improve their lighting systems. The best way to ensure maximum performance of the new systems, maximize return on investment, and prove energy savings (in order to qualify for financial assistance or meet government targets) is to start with a comprehensive lighting audit. Public and private incentives along with recent energy saving advances in lighting technology have motivated companies to turn to energy saving solutions. Written by one of the nation's leading authorities on lighting and the education of lighting professionals, this practical handbook provides the auditor with the solid, useful information needed to accomplish accurate surveys and audits.

The sustainable renovation of older buildings involves more than just an improvement of their energy footprint oOe1/4OC and it is due to the complexity of the issue why architects are destined to take on this task. The book, Energy efficiency refurbishments, was written by architects for architects. It shows how design, construction and systems engineering carried out during the renovation of diverse types of buildings fit together."
