Office and Back of House
Office tasks can vary considerably, from screen and paper based tasks to meetings with colleagues. Office spaces require lighting of high quality, particularly in terms of visual comfort and glare control, and light levels must be carefully selected.
In offices areas the provision of dimming control and the uniformity of light should be maximised. Lighting that controls glare, but also adequately lights vertical surfaces, including the faces of staff, is especially important. For general back of house areas it is advisable to use low maintenance, functional lighting tailored to the task.
Staff rooms are important spaces to rest, refuel, escape and think. Quality lighting is key to achieving a comfortable and welcoming ambience. The combination of overall ambient light, and elements of directional and surface lighting, can promote comfort whilst differentiating the staff room from more utilitarian spaces.
Designplan have produced a comprehensive overview of potential lighting applications for Network Rail Category B, C, D, E, F. Applications include everything from platforms, forecourts, subways through to public toilets.

It is important to balance light levels, and light quality, whilst ensuring a space is not over illuminated which wastes energy.
Further energy savings can be made by employing lighting controls. Automated occupancy controls are especially valuable in areas that are not continuously occupied.
