Daylight and Sunlight Birmingham

Our Daylight & Sunlight surveyors in Birmingham are based in offices in the heart of the city. Just around the corner from St Philip’s Cathedral they provide Daylight and Sunlight advice in the city and across the West Midlands.

The Daylight & Sunlight assessment of a proposed building in Birmingham is key to delivering high quality developments in increasingly dense urban areas throughout the UK.

Carefully considered design can help mitigate the impact on surrounding areas, whilst also maximizing the development potential of a site and the delivery of good quality amenity for future occupiers.

With the most experienced Daylight & Sunlight teams in the UK, we provide advice to the developing party, potentially affected neighbours and local planning authorities that are reviewing such matters.

Daylight & Sunlight Assessment Birmingham

The Birmingham planning authorities will typically require a formal Daylight & Sunlight assessment and report to support a planning application. This will set out the impact to existing neighbours, as well as the quality of light within the proposed dwelling.

Our specialist Daylight and Sunlight assessmentshelp translate planning requirements into pragmatic design advice. Our 3D model of many UK cities, including London & Birmingham helps us to rapidly undertake analysis and calculate the existing context values in the local area for instance. This allows us to adopt alternative target values from those recommended by the BRE, maximising the development potential of a site.

We provide reports with reference to the guidelines published by the BRE, as well as the latest British Standard for Daylighting EN17037.
