The Daylight & Sunlight assessment of a proposed building in Manchester 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 one of the most experienced teams in the UK, we provide daylight and sunlight assessments to the developing party, potentially affected neighbours and local planning authorities that are reviewing such matters.

Daylight & Sunlight Assessment Manchester

The Manchester 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 assessments help translate planning requirements into pragmatic design advice. Our 3D model of many UK cities, including Manchester, 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.
