BUILD EFFICIENCY WITH
The 2016 update to California’s
building energy efficiency
standards poses a host of new
mandates, including these changes
to lighting requirements. Can your
building comply with these four
changes, or will it fall short?
FMs with a limited budget for
improvements are more likely to
target building systems with clear
and immediate dividends, like
HVAC and lighting. But despite the
capital investment, security systems
can provide a substantial ROI and

Daylighting can have its fair share
of drawbacks – namely, letting in
too much sunlight can create glare
and increase cooling loads. Consider

as the dynamically adjustable
technology lets in varying levels of
sunlight throughout the day.
