The purpose of this study was to develop a simple, economical but efficient procedure to collect illuminance data in quantifying interior lighting. This study was carried out in 3.8 m × 2.9 m × 3.0 m controlled experimental room. Three approaches to measure illuminance level were examined: (1) row-to-row; (2) column-to-column; and (3) zig-zag direction. A pre-determined 34 measurement points was used for all the three approaches. The duration required to complete the illuminance data measurement was recorded in minutes. There was a statistically significant difference in the total time measured to complete the illuminance data measurement in three different approaches (F(2, 4) = 23266.81, p<0.05). The finding concluded that the zig-zag direction approach was the fastest and most efficient way in quantifying interior lighting.
