AbstractWe conducted a field study in a deep-plan office building with cubicle accommodation and large windows. Workstation-specific suspended direct-indirect (WSDI-C) luminaires with occupancy sensors, daylight-linked dimming, and individual controls were located centrally in each workstation provided lighting over most of the floor area. Part of one floor featured a conventional ceiling-recessed parabolic-louvered lighting system with zonal on-off switching. This report concerns the occupants? evaluations of the office lighting as reported in three questionnaire waves. Results showed that WSDI-C system was associated with a superior indoor environment in comparison to the conventional system.
