92 Residential Units, Nursery and Flexible Space

RPS was commissioned to carry out a Daylight / Sunlight & Overshadowing analysis for the proposed development located at Somerleyton Road in Brixton. The proposal consisted of the construction of a new high quality eight storey building, including 6 houses, 49 private and 37 affordable homes; flexible space and nursery.

To support the planning application, RPS was appointed to carry out detailed internal and external daylight analysis, primarily by assessing the daylight and sunlight impacts of the proposed development on the surrounding properties and amenity areas / gardens.

Moreover, RPS assessed the daylight & overshadowing levels of the proposed residential habitable rooms and amenity spaces. RPS guided the design team during the whole process and managed to deliver the assessment within a tight timeframe.

The analysis has shown that the proposed development will have no major impact on the daylight or sunlight levels to any of the surrounding properties located in close proximity and amenity spaces around the site and thus, it will be compliant with BRE requirements.
