Daylighting

Ensuring habitable rooms within a dwelling have adequate daylight and a view of the sky is not only a criterion under the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) but a fundamental principle in achieving a successful design. Daylight figures put simply are the sum of glazing within a room divided by the total area of all room surfaces. View of the sky calculations analyse the distance and height of any obstructions.

Ellis Belk Associates can undertake both daylight and view of the sky calculations and have a vast experience in doing so in conjunction with the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH). Our knowledge and ability enables us to consider necessary principles early in the design process and make recommendations when assessing schemes under the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH).
