New Metric Could Help Facility Managers Optimize Daylighting

The development of daylighting metrics has been the subject of considerable effort and debate, but no widely accepted metric has emerged to help recognize well-daylit buildings.

On the other hand, rule-of-thumb approaches that are often used to aid in the decision making process are based on overly simplified assumptions.
