Daylighting | Low Energy Consultancy

Overview of Daylighting

Daylighting

Daylighting calculations provide the necessary information to assist designers to reduce the risk of poor low levels of natural lighting within buildings. Some areas, especially built up areas, can create solar shading and this can often lead to poor light levels in some dwellings.

The process of daylighting analysis follows the BS 8206-2:2008 Lighting for Buildings Part 2.

Why do I need daylighting calculations?

A daylight analysis report may be required as part of:

  • BREEAM (HEA01 - visual comfort) 
  • Home Quality Mark
  • Planning requirements
  • To assist designers/architects in preventing poor natural light to occupied spaces

It can be a very beneficial exercise and relatively reasonable in cost to enhance credit accumulation and prevent overuse of artificial lighting.
