To do this right you need to know the ceiling cavity ratio, distance to worksurface, reflectance of ceiling-walls-floor, age of the users, cleanliness of the area, the type of work you are doing, and on into ad hominem.
Rule of thumb- hang 6 reflector type 2 lamp T8 fixtures spaced lengthwise- 4 feet from wall and 8 feet apart, crosswise- the same. This should put you into a fair range of at least 40 to 60 fc. Depending on what you are doing you can judge if this is sufficient for your needs. If not repattern and add.
I would suggest the cheapie fixtures at walmart or similar. They are electronic T8 with a full reflector and though they do have a fairly high infant mortality, they stand behind them and it is fairly simple to wire outlets to the ceiling on a switch, so you can move around things as/if necessary....
