Workplace lighting design just to meet the Regulatory requirements for lux levels and energy usage is often an easier process than designing for the actual users of the space and even more so when a project is on a tight financial budget. Getting the end-clients 'buy-in' early to using non standard layouts and taking a more holistic view is vitally important. Highlighting that having a uniform 500lux across the entire space isn't the only way of lighting the environment, while saving money and energy.
