ANSI/IES – RP-8-18 Practice for Design and Maintenance of Roadway and Parking Facility Lighting
About this Course
The IES offers a series of webinars that provide supplemental education to coincide with a recently revised or new IES Standard (Recommended Practice - RP, Technical Memorandum - TM, etc.). You can view this standard in the IES Webstore.
Description: ANSI/IES RP-8-18 Committee Members Don MacLean and Paul Lutkevich will introduce the new standard in standards, Recommended Practice for Design and Maintenance of Roadway and Parking Facility Lighting. This incredibly ambitious and accomplished endeavor puts all of a number of previous Standards regarding Roadway Lighting into one comprehensive tome.
