Lighting & LEED Certification

Building certification programs look to address the built environment, energy efficiency as well as occupant health and well-being. Symmetry can help you address many requirements in LEED® certification through our wide range of lighting products, technologies, and services.

Light Pollution Reduction

Select outdoor lighting solutions that address light pollution requirements, such as sea-friendly lighting solutions that include low wattage phosphor converted amber and true amber limited wavelength LEDs.

Optimize Energy Performance

Lighting power density reductions are addressed with controls embedded luminaires enabling lumen maintenance, over time, and resulting in energy savings.

Advanced Energy Metering

Lighting power density reductions are addressed with controls enabled luminaires enabling lumen maintenance, over time, and resulting in energy savings.

For lighting system level energy usage monitoring, nLight ENVYSION™ is a great solution. Additionally, nLight AIR provides for power monitoring solutions.

Interior Lighting

Meet one strategy for 1 point. Meet 3 strategies for 2 points.

Glare Control: Use light fixtures with a luminance of less than 7,000 candela per square meter (cd/m)2 between 45 and 90 degrees from nadir OR Achieve a Unified Glare Rating (UGR) of <19 using software modelling calculations of the designed lighting.

Colour Rendering: Use light sources that have a colour rendering index (CRI) of at least 90 OR Use light sources that have a Colour Fidelity Index greater than or equal to 78 and a gamut index between 97 and 110, determined in accordance with IES TM-30.

Lighting Control: Provide dimmable or multilevel lighting for 90% of occupant spaces.

Material Ingredient Reporting

The project must use at least 20 different permanently installed products from at least five different manufacturers that use any of the following programs to demonstrate the chemical inventory of the product to at least 0.1% (1000 ppm) using one of several listed methods including Declare Labels, Health Product Declarations or a publicly available inventory of all ingredients identified by name and Chemical Abstract Service Registration Number.

We have various Declare Label Listed fixtures from various manufacturers that can help you achieve this requirement.
