Abstract

The aim of this study is that examination of outdoor lighting design of Akdeniz University Medical Faculty Hospital. Documents and projects about the hospital's lighting design were obtained from the related units, and these materials were analyzed using computer software. The study area was divided into hexagons with each corner of 10 x 10 meters. Lux values of the each points on hexagons were measured for determining the current lighting values using lux-meter. As a result, it has been determined that the parking, green spaces, vehicle roads, building entrances and green areas in the hospital were lighted with 0 - 10 lux more than the standards. There were differences between hospital lighting design and standards due to land use. Land use was disregarded while lighting design was made for hospital. Some areas were far above standards; on the contrary some areas were far below standards. While choosing the locations of the lighting elements at the design stage, the height of the plants which will get in the future, should be considered, and should be supported the efficiency of the lighting elements with periodic maintenance in the future.
