In April of 2007, Acuity Brands opened the highly anticipated new Center for Light & Space located in Granville, Ohio... just a few minutes' drive from the Holophane manufacturing facility in Newark, Ohio.

The new CL&S Granville facility, which replaced the previous one located in Newark, is a larger and much improved setting with state-of-the-art training and presentation resources. The new CL&S has increased seating capacity from 24 up to 40 students now, and in a much more spacious room.

In addition to the latest audio-visual and demonstration equipment, it also utilizes a variety of the best lighting products and controls that Holophane and Acuity Brands Lighting have to offer.


As you can see from the photos above, the new CL&S Granville facility is a spacious "auditorium" and provides a great deal of comfort for up to 40 students in an attractive, modern setting utilizing industry leading lighting, A/V equipment, and seating provisions.

From the inviting curved architectural styling and comfortable leather seating, down to the wireless networking and power boxes at each table, you'll find that each seat in the house is as comfortable and functional as a small office.

Your instructors will be some of the best engineers, scientists and product specialists in the industry today.

Instructors who not only have the academic knowledge of the lighting sciences, but also a "real-world" understanding of current technologies, products and customer needs.

Some of the CL&S Seminars also feature special guest speakers that are highly respected in the lighting industry and bring a great outside perspective to the topics at hand.


The Acuity Brands CL&S Granville lineup features several training dates per year with an average of eight different seminars to choose from.

In addition to the obvious benefit that such a high quality of training brings to you and your career growth, the seminars also qualify for a variety of industry certification credits and learning units such as AIA LUs. These AIA credits can be applied to PDHs for Engineers and LEUs for Lighting Professionals.


The Acuity Brands CL&S Facility and Night Time Demos feature a large variety of product samples, demonstration equipment and other visual aids that greatly improve the ability to see, touch and comprehend the seminar subject matter.

The photos at left show just a few of the array of lighting demonstration modules at CL&S Granville. There is a great deal of "hands-on" training with actual luminaires and other lighting equipment.

Most seminars include other visual demonstrations, such as Night Time Outdoor Lighting Demo (see link at right) and even tours of the Newark manufacturing facility, where you can actually view the glass being made and luminaires being assembled!
