Default Mixing 30K and 40K fixtures

I am putting some LED fixtures in a commercial building. The print calls for 40K Led recessed fixtures with 30K LED recessed lights in the offsets of the room. Will it look right to mix colors like that?

They have different uses. Could be the design. I would install it.

Go by the drawing. If they don't like it, change order. And, yes, the difference is noticeable side by side.

Do what the customer requests and then change it when they don't like it.

I'd make 100% sure to submit something to someone in writing pointing out that there are two different light color and that this is not the usual setup, but that you're going to proceed as per the drawing unless otherwise directed. Probably just a single email to the GC.

If your customers listen to you like mine, it's at best 50-50 anyone will even read it let alone do anything about it, but this way there won't be any bitching that you should have caught this - you did catch it.

One could always just say "I figured it was a design requirement".

Dealing with rfi s sucks. To get an answer takes longer than wiring it wrong three times over. I hate the fact that engineering pays so much, but gets so little done. It all looks good on paper. The skilled worker shortage is gonna cut deep fast.
