Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing Analysis

Cities are becoming taller and with that comes a need to understand the impacts this has on the natural light received by surrounding buildings of a proposed development and the natural daylight levels the development itself achieves.

We understand that the levels of natural daylight received by occupants greatly impacts their health and wellbeing and so it is important to assess prospective developments against defined criteria to lessen impact.

We can carry out daylight, sunlight, and overshadowing analysis and reports following the guidance set out in the BRE ‘Site Layout Planning for Daylight and Sunlight, A Guide to good Practice’ (2011) as well as internal daylight calculations to satisfy BREEAM criteria.

In addition to this, we are also able to provide Internal Daylight Analysis. To discuss any of these services and to find out more information, please contact us on 01275 846995.
