Fixtures and Lamping

  1. Efficiently install parking lot, sidewalk and facility lighting with appropriate luminaires, lamping, placement and spacing following Installation Facilities Standards (IFS); pole-mounted, wall-mounted and bollard fixtures are permitted.
  2. Integrate controls to automatically reduce lighting power during periods of non-activity; automatically turn off power when sufficient daylight is available.
  3. Sufficiently address environmental factors to prevent corrosion and weathering of fixtures, plinths and other components.
  4. Economically provide renewable-energy power sources such as solar photovoltaic when feasible.
  5. Use appropriately designed or shielded luminaires to direct light downward to minimize light pollution and intrusion onto adjacent sites and to facilitate night training.
  6. Coordinate the design, luminaire selection, and placement with the location of trees, shrubs, and other site furnishings; landscape accent lighting may be use in public gathering spaces and in Group 1 facilities.
  7. Develop lighting in parking areas to provide an illuminated path to the building’s main entrance.
  8. Efficient architectural accent lighting may be provided on Group 1 and historically significant structures following IFS.

Reduce energy consumption by using energy efficient technologies, effective illuminance levels and by implementing control strategies while ensuring appropriate lighting quality. Select long-life technologies, lamps, fixtures and finishes and limit quantities to reduce maintenance requirements. Address antiterrorism and physical security following UFC 4-010-01.

Ensure the quality and quantities of lighting and fixtures are appropriate for the Facility Group.


Sustainability

Comply with guidance for energy efficiency and sustainable design under UFC 1-200-02. Aggressively pursue renewable-energy power sources such as solar photovoltaic when cost effective.
