Improvement of public lighting is an effective and also cost-efficient measure for the sustainable enhancement of inner cities. Many cities in Germany and Europe have now realised this and are investing in complete new urban lighting schemes, devised on the basis of lighting masterplans, to make them competitive with other cities or revitalise their city centres.
Even though this is a sweeping and lasting trend, there is as yet no typology of urban lighting. This book will set first standards, presented in a practical handbook. It contains technical and professional aspects and the authors experience of successful communication with other consultants, authorities and investors, as well as information regarding feasibility and possible financing options. The book is structured accordingly, and fully illustrated in colour with photographs, plans and detail drawings.
