Daylighting Analysis

Natural daylighting plays a vital role in creating healthy and productive indoor environments and works towards the overall goal of enhanced performance and resiliency in buildings. SBP is able to help quantify and visualize these daylighting considerations by leveraging cutting-edge daylighting simulation software such as LightStanza. Using the software’s advanced algorithms and accurate sky models, we can precisely predict and evaluate the availability and quality of daylight throughout different times of the day and year which allows for informed decisions regarding building orientation, window design, shading strategies, and interior lighting systems.

SBP works to integrate daylighting simulations into the standard design process in order to ensure the project’s goals are met and an effective balance is maintained. SBP has extensive daylighting analysis experience in support of the following:

  • LEED
  • WELL
  • ILFI
  • Design optimization
  • Glare mitigation
