Contained within this report are a series of case study field observations
of selected retail design projects utilizing natural daylighting.
Followed by the investigation and laboratory testing of three alternate
roof fenestration patterns applicable to the least effective design. A
description of the investigation procedure, a tabulation of all research
findings and a section of concluding observations serve to round out this
All of this done in an effort to prove that there exists a positive
relationship between the effective incorporation of daylighting and
owner/user satisfaction with the retail building type.
