Surely the lux level cannot be predetermined because it will vary according to how much natural light is present?

if you use a big wholesalers, they tend to give out free info. We had one job once where their special department gave us lux levels etc for floodlighting on a football pitch

I think it will depend on what the office is to be mainly used for, such as IT work or basic paper handling etc. This will have an effect on recommended lighting levels.
