Despite discussions of the universal workstation, there is increasing workplace dynamics in organizations. These dynamics include space configuration changes, changes in occupant density, and increasing equipment density. Building infrastructures have not evolved to meet these demands, with little flexibility in air conditioning and ventilation, lighting, electrical, and telecommunication systems in new or existing office buildings. Simulation tools can be used to evaluate dynamic workplace scenarios and provide guidance for designers by modeling indoor environmental conditions. This paper presents the results of a study that used a commercially available lighting simulation tool to examine the effects of workplace dynamics and lighting design decisions on the visual quality provided for the individual worker by alternative office lighting systems.
