In recent years Wurster Hall has undergone a light fixture retrofit for the purposes of running a more energy efficient building and reducing long-term costs. The following study examines the possibility of delamping retrofit fixtures as a mean to reduce Wurster energy use. The study involved looking at the effects of the lighting retrofit by observing and measuring existing lighting illuminance levels in public areas, specifically major corridors of floors one through three, and comparing the findings to the recommended amount for lighting hallways by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). The gathered data determined whether or not delamping would provide sufficient lighting without compromising occupancy comfort and safety during the day and night.
