Our daylighting simulations allow for extremely precise readings
of direct (or
beam) and indirect (or diffuse) lighting. Daylighting
calculations are also required for some of
the Health & Well-Being credits in
and the Code for Sustainable Homes assessments.
Optimization of glazed area
By combining energy and daylight
simulations, we can determine the optimum
level of glazing that provides the maximum
amount of light with minimum energy loss.
The model can forecast daylight availability
and direct solar illuminance on an hourly
basis for any period of the year, and show
exactly where direct and indirect light will
Dynamic Thermal Modelling
Code for Sustainable Homes
one Health & Well-Being credit is
obtained if, for a development, the
average daylight factor for kitchens
exceeds 2%, and another credit is
achieved if the average daylight factor
for living rooms, dining rooms, and
study/office exceeds 1.5%.
