IES Consulting performed a thermal comfort study on the The Barberry, National Centre for Mental Health in Birmingham. The assessment involved creating a 3D model representation which included the architectural solar shading features. This solar protection performance formed part of the dynamic simulations which investigated optimising the natural ventialtion strategy to ensure comfortable conditons were achieved for the building occupants, particularly as this was a healthcare facility.
