Environmental analysis at early design stages supports a smooth planning process by driving the sustainability agenda and addressing concerns of councils and residents through a robust design process.

By using these tools (example outputs below), a range of environmental indicators can be provided early on, including indications of areas that addressed to ensure that they achieve regulatory standards in terms of overheating and daylight. If the location and size of units are available, an early stage SAP evaluation can also be provided. This allows for optimisation of the building, allowing design teams to adjust windows, shading and even massing to find the best workable solution.
