The Fall Emerging Professionals Workshop & Happy Hour had a great turnout, with 24 attendees including: EP members, ASLA members and nonmembers and persons from other agencies including BES & PBOT. Many participants took advantage of the 1.5 PDH credits and recieved certificates were handed out at end of the tour.
Kandy Welch from Harry L. Stearns gave a demo at the beginning which outlined basic lighting principles and types, and there were several rounds of Q&A prior to leaving for the tour.
The tour, stopped and viewed 7 built projects making use of all types of lighting. Kandy answered questions along the way and took foot-candle readings with a light meter.
- Suspended overheads
- Post-mounted floods
- In-grade and post/stake mounted uplights / accents
- Bollard lights
- Wall and Step lights
- Submersible lights
- Custom lighting applications
Over half of the group met at Bridgeport for the Happy hour, which was a great networking opportunity for the several EPâ€™s in attendance. Also, several of the seasoned ASLA members called themselves â€œRE-emerging professionalsâ€ and explained they intend to participate in future events... so keep that in mind for future events.
