The Assessment of DSO Effects Within the Built Environment
This seminar aims to:
- Provide an understanding of the importance of sunlight / daylight availability and the impacts of shadowing
- Provide an introduction to associated UK and international building codes / design guides and best practice
- Provide an introduction of how green building design is affected by sunlight / daylight
- Contextualise sunlight / daylight with the UK planning process
Assessment of Wind Effects on the Built Environment
The learning aims of this seminar are to enable an understanding of the properties of wind that are important in building design, the nature of wind flows around building structures, the various effects that wind has on buildings, assessment methods and timing during the design process.
The intended outcome is that the architect has increased awareness and appreciation of these issues rather than specific expertise.
