IES can help you explore the oppurtunities for daylight optimisation at the design stage. We can work with you right from concept using the latest in analysis technology to communicate visually and statistically the impact of of a potential design strategy. Our daylight optimisation approach works toward an improved environment and enhanced productivity.
We can demonstrate the daylight to solar energy balance due to factors including location, climate, orientation, topography, glass, architectural shading features and more.
We now provide Climate Based Daylight Modelling (CBDM) for LEED v4, WELL and the PSPB. This dynamic daylight modelling approach reveals the true daylight performance for the building.
Our analyses include:
