3D Modelling Software

Visualise site features, obstructions, and topography to minimise impacts of poor light.

Maximise Natural Light with Daylight & Sunlight Assessments

We’re working with clients from pre-construction phases to improve the overall design of a development, whilst maximising the use of natural light and minimising potential impacts to existing levels of daylight and sunlight to neighbouring properties. Our services include:

Daylight Assessment simulations for complex commercial buildings to determine daylight factors and daylight distribution analysis

Overshadowing Assessments for new developments to support planning applications

Average Daylight Factor for new and existing buildings to highlight where adequate levels of sunlight should be attainable.

Sunlight Assessment calculations to estimate the annual amount of sunlight for a given window

Maximum Envelope Calculations during early planning to support Developers in space utilisation vs daylight & sunlight restriction.

Assessments for Planning Applications, BREEAM and CSH

Our Daylight and Sunlight Assessments are helping clients analyse existing and expected levels of daylight and sunlight, as well as overshadowing on neighbouring properties. In line with the Building Research Establishment’s (BRE) methods, our reports can help to demonstrate measures to reduce potential impacts of proposed developments for:

Local Authority Planning Applications

BREEAM HEA 01 Visual Comfort (Daylighting) Credit

Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) HEA1 Daylight Credit

We can also assist designers to control solar heat gain and achieve sufficient light levels in compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations.
