Suncast Study

Encon Associates provide a Suncast Study service which may be required as part of planning applications or conditions of planning consent.

Often local authorities ask for details of the impact of shade to neighbouring properties based on proposed building works, this is to determine if there is a detrimental impact in line with good practice levels.

Daylight Calculations

Encon Associates can undertake detailed 3d simulation of the existing and proposed developments to determine the suncast that is formed at existing and proposed. Once the shading impact has been determined Encon Associates can provide a detailed report of findings for issue to the Local Authority OR provide the client with design advice should any design changes be required.
