The aim of this credit is "To ensure daylighting, artificial lighting and occupant controls are considered at the design stage to ensure best practice visual performance and comfort for building occupants."
To meet compliance with this credit you will need to undertake daylighting calculations to ensure compliance to minimum daylight factors.
With our Daylighting Calculations service, our building simulation team will prepare a 3D computer model of your building to enable a dynamic simulation which will determine the daylight factors based on your design. Should the daylight factors be unsuitable or non compliant we can advise and value engineer if required.
