What is a Construction Sites Lighting Plan?

A Construction Site Lighting Plan, or night work lighting plan, is a software generated report detailing how lighting will perform on a construction site or large outdoor space. It can include different types of lights in different locations and shows a graphical representation of light levels in foot candles or lux throughout the entire construction area.

Temporary lighting requirements for construction sites exist to ensure the safety of all workers and visitors. Without these safety checks in place, the risk of injury is much higher.

What are the Typical Construction Site Lighting Standards?

According to OSHA, here are the minimum OSHA night work lighting requirements for a construction site.

General Construction Area Lighting – 5 foot candles
Concrete placement, excavation and waste areas, refueling areas and field maintenance – 3 foot candles
General shops or construction plants including screening plants, batch plants, carpenter shops, mechanical and electrical equipment rooms. 10 foot candles

How Do You Calculate a Construction Lighting Plan to Provide Proper Lighting?

Creating a lighting plan is a good first step. The plan allows you to create a physical layout of the outdoor/indoor space. Then you can add lights and poles in specific locations. The plan calculates foot candle readings across the construction site to meet your minimum light levels for construction sites.

How Can You Ensure Construction Area Lighting to Provides Lighting in the Work Zone?

In the lighting industry, using lighting plan software like AGI32 allows us to design lighting plans to provide sufficient lighting on construction projects. It allows us to light up construction equipment and key areas of work on the construction project keeping construction workers safe.

Whether that’s mounting permanent lighting or temporary lighting, performing construction tasks safely will be easier in the construction zone by using high power LED lighting.

How Can You Minimize Hazards & Accidents with Good Construction Site Lighting Design?

Good lighting design helps minimize accidents by ensuring all areas are well-lit. It should also illuminate potential hazard areas like excavation sites, scaffolding, and material storage areas.

How Does Construction Site Lighting Help with Issues of Security?

Good lighting deters theft and vandalism. This is true of all sites but also includes construction sites. It enables surveillance cameras to work effectively.

What is the Difference Between a Lighting Design Calculator and a Lighting Plan?

Use a calculator if:

  • You are looking for a free, online tool to quickly calculate the number of fixtures you need
  • You want quick, simple, and immediate results
  • You are looking for a count of light fixtures needed based on a specific budget
  • You need a rough estimate on quantity and layout/configuration does not matter
  • There is no need to include specific light balance and shadows in your documentation

Use a lighting plan layout if:

  • You would like a professional lighting plan engineer to review your requirements
  • You need a calculated lighting plan that shows foot candle readings
  • You need to see how balanced the light levels are, and you care about reducing shadows
  • You want to show aiming angles, and light positions in scale within your indoor or outdoor area
  • You need professional assurance that the lights you buy will be the right choice
