Overheating risk assessment in East London

Our overheating and daylight assessors are working with a top five developer on a development in East London. The Development, a large mixed-use development on an island in the river Thames requires an assessment of the overheating risk to meet the conditions outlined in the London Plan.

The site has many large, south facing windows to take advantage of the great views and natural light. However, as a result several of the dwellings on site were found to be at a high risk of overheating. Where this was the case, we outlined small changes to the window layout and specified changes in glazing products and films that improve the windows transmittance and solar gains.
