Happy Christmas! Advent calendar no 5

30th November 2016

Behind the door is… The Eight Associates Daylight Predictor Tool (Early Design Phase)

Daylight levels impact on occupants’ well-being and comfort, reduce operational costs and are essential to meet health regulations.  Knowing how to measure, influence and optimise daylight factors on projects is critical.

The Eight Associates Daylight Predictor Tool (Early Design Phase) 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.

We offer a CPD that explores the theory and principles of measuring daylight, the influencers on ADF and uniformity ratio, and shares tips about design considerations to improve daylighting conditions and light distribution.  Please contact us on 020 7043 0418 if you’d like to arrange a session.
