Happy Christmas! Advent calendar 21
Behind the door is… Our set of free sustainability tools!
Sustainability decisions are best taken as early as possible in a project. To help ensure you are aware of and equipped to make some of these decisions we have developed a range of tools in some of the areas in which we work. Please feel free to download these, and forward to any colleagues or contacts whom may find them useful.
? Eight Associates Early Design Stage Daylight Predictor Tool – This tool is designed to enable the user to estimate the average daylight factor (ADF), the sky view area and the maximum room depth according to the BRE guidelines at the very early design stage.
? Eight Associates U-value Calculator – Generate u-values by using our handy tool, allowing for more decision-making to take place in meetings and accelerate the design process.
? Eight Associates Ecology Survey Calendar – Our experienced licensed ecologists have put together guidance on when to carry out surveys for protected species. Download a copy for your reference and never miss an ecology survey window!
? Eight Associates Tree Root Protection Area Calculator – Our free tool allows you to carry out a simple tree survey and calculate the Root Protection Areas to include on site drawings and inform the design.
