There are numerous benefits associated with good daylighting within buildings. Firstly, it is known to improve building occupants’ health and psychological wellbeing as well as reducing common conditions such as eyestrain and standard irritability. This in turn is known to improve the productivity of those using or working within the space. Secondly, improved daylighting not only reduces energy consumption for artificial lighting, but can also reduce heating bills due to the additional benefit of passive solar heating.
BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes use sophisticated calculations to guide and assess the design and extent of daylighting within buildings. Syntegra Consulting offer a professionally accredited daylighting assessment service under both schemes. Whether you have a new build project or are looking to improve an existing property, we can ensure that the benefits of daylighting are incorporated into your development.
