Daylight Analysis

> Ensuring ample natural daylight is essential for enhancing the health, wellbeing, and productivity of individuals within buildings.

Health and Sustainability Benefits

W Visual comfort is increasingly prioritized by clients and planning departments due to its recognized health benefits and sustainability impacts. Achieving optimal daylight conditions positively influences building occupants' health and productivity while reducing the need for energy-intensive artificial lighting. We conduct dynamic simulations to predict daylight levels, ensuring client targets and aspirations are achieved from the outset.

Advanced Daylight Modeling

Using IES Virtual Environment software, we calculate daylight provision in buildings, helping our clients meet industry-recommended levels such as:

LEED EQ Credit: Daylight
Estidama PBRS Credit: Natural Systems and Liveable Buildings
BREEAM Hea 01 Visual Comfort
Climate Based Daylight Modelling (CBDM)
BRE BR209: Site Layout Planning for Daylight and Sunlight
Building Bulletin 87 (BB87)
Overshading Calculations

We also perform overshading calculations to assess the impact of proposed buildings or structures on existing properties or solar panels. This ensures that new developments do not negatively affect the surrounding environment.

Optimizing Design for Daylight

Early engagement in projects allows us to optimize window arrangements to achieve the required daylight levels while considering thermal comfort and building regulation compliance. This holistic approach ensures that buildings not only meet regulatory standards but also provide a comfortable and sustainable environment for occupants.
