Abstract : Lighting design is a critical part of all building design processes for both new construction and renovation work. Performing lighting design properly takes a large amount of time and effort. The primary objective of this thesis effort was to develop a computer software package that would help base engineers perform the calculation stage of interior lighting design quickly and accurately. Because the base engineer will have available to him many different types of computer systems, a second objective of this thesis was to make the program as transportable between computer systems as possible. The primary system that the program was designed for was the Wang pc system because of its wide spread use within the Civil Engineering community.
