Daylight & Sunlight Birmingham

Daylight & Sunlight Report Birmingham

We have the most experienced team of specialist Daylight & Sunlight surveyors based in Birmingham and around the UK

With this unrivalled expertise, our Birmingham Daylight & Sunlight surveyors provide Daylight & Sunlight reports for planning, and advise developers, affected neighbours and local authorities.

Our Birmingham Daylight & Sunlight surveyors are based in offices in the heart of the city. Just around the corner from St Philip's Cathedral they provide Rights of Light advice in the city and across the West Midlands.

Assessing the Daylight & Sunlight available to a proposed building is key to delivering high quality developments in increasingly dense urban areas throughout the UK.

Carefully considered design can help mitigate the impact on surrounding areas, whilst also maximizing the development potential of a site and the delivery of good quality amenity for future occupiers.

With one of the most experienced teams in the UK, we provide advice to the developing party, potentially affected neighbours and local planning authorities that are reviewing such matters.

Birmingham Daylight & Sunlight Reports

The Birmingham planning authorities will typically require a formal Daylight & Sunlight report to support a planning application. This will set out the impact to existing neighbours, as well as the quality of light within the proposed dwelling.

Our specialist services and analysis help translate planning requirements into pragmatic design advice. Our 3D model of many UK cities, including London & Birmingham helps us to rapidly undertake analysis and calculate the existing context values in the local area for instance. This allows us to adopt alternative target values from those recommended by the BRE, maximising the development potential of a site.

We provide reports with reference to the guidelines published by the BRE, as well as the latest British Standard for Daylighting EN17037.
