NIGHTLIGHTING NOTES

A home lighting design Nightlighting Schedule can be presented with extensive notes, including: 1. selected types of luminaires indicated, in order to keep perspective broad; 2. certain materials preferred, e.g., brilliant reflectors to get the maximum illuminance out of CFL downlighting; 3. rules of artificial, or mechanical, illuminance design repeated as a fall-back reference; 4. methods emphasized, e.g., layering, dimmers, under-cabinet skirting, etc.; 5. materials array is recapped, e.g., pendant, sconce, cove, etc.; 6. lighting quality hurdles indicated; site-specific concerns identified, e.g., about lighting potentially high-hazard spaces, possibly troublesome glare, cold-weather fluorescent materials and methods, safety-switching, continuous service rating, etc.

ELECTRICAL & LIGHTING PLAN

The home lighting design Nightlighting Schedule and related notes get translated in the Electrical & Lighting Plan in plan view.

This is not about beating a dead horse with texted table, extensive notes, and now a floor plan expression of wiring including lighting. This is about taking the wiggle-room out of residential lighting design and installation in application.

First, let the home designer define the lighting plan overall. Let the interior designing be done by designers guiding clients, based on the lighting plan. Then let the installation, the construction begin based on the interior designing and lighting pro's instructions.

This custom home designer writes on the electrical plan space-by-space. He prescribes: foot candles by site, e.g., vanity, overall bath; distinction of foot candles by site by, i.e., task and ambient; switching and circuitry; and notes that, aside from specified heights and spreads of sconce luminaire, all aspects of luminaire materials and methods are done by others.
