ZGF’s circadian lighting design and BIM energy modeling tools provide greater precision and fidelity, elevating the conventions of these design strategies. Building Design + Construction discusses them in its coverage of wellness and technology in the 2016 BD+C Giants 300 Green Report, featuring ZGF Sustainable Designer Ed Clark (pg. 44). As the article notes, “ZGF has teamed up with researchers at the University of Washington on Lark Spectral Lighting. The tool allows designers to use spectral data to define how the quality of light impacts not only a physical space, but also the occupants. The color and quality of light affect humans’ circadian rhythms, sleeping patterns, and alertness, which can impact employee productivity.”
Additionally, ZGF is pleased to again be cited among the Top 10 Architecture Firms in the BD+C Giants 300 Survey (page 21).
