What is Sports Lighting Design?

Commercial lighting design is creating a plan for commercial lighting in indoor and outdoor spaces. The design models the physical space of the commercial area. The lighting designers add lights within the model to create a lighting design report. It indicates how the space would look once you convert to our lighting and will indicate brightness (measured in foot candles) and light distribution.

What are the Recommended Sports Lighting Standards?

Sports lighting levels and standards are somewhat particular to the specific sport being played. For example, the lighting level needed for a baseball field is going to be different than what is needed for a tennis court. Further, indoor sports lighting standards will also differ from a similar but outdoor facility.
