Daylight and Sunlight Analysis to Aid Your Planning Application
Where a new development provides residential accommodation, natural light levels need to meet BRE 209 and British Standard 8206-2: 2008, and many local authorities now frequently request specialist natural lighting reports in support of planning submissions.
At The Syntegra Group, our daylight and sunlight assessment consultantsÂ provide professional advice, assistance and guidance at every stage of the development process, from daylight modelling advice at the design stage, to calculation of the Average Daylight Factors and amendments to the design to achieve extra credits.
