A daylight study analyses the level of natural light entering a property or a specific room. Natural light, whether in your home or your office, is imperative for people both in terms of psychological benefits and energy savings. The case for more daylight is pushing construction to have larger openings and a high percentage of glazing as part of the external facade. However a balance must be struck in order to optimise the health benefits to our wellbeing, the solar gains and heat losses and reducing glare issues for better productivity.
We undertake simulations on highly sophisticated computer models that accurately represent the natural light entering into your development.
Natural light is a key factor in all buildings as it affects human health and economic benefits, wellbeing and productivity, heating and cooling loads and could even make us healthier and more positive. In order to help you design brighter and better buildings, we offer a range of services:
- Daylight Factor Assessments
- Daylight and Sunlight studies for planning applications
- Annual Sunlight Hours
- Daylight and sunlight calculations for BREEAM, LEED and WELL
