Rosemary McLafferty, LightSIM Ltd

Daylight/Energy Consultancy

LightSIM offers specialist consultancy for Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Developers to ensure buildings are designed as best as they can be for everyone concerned. We have over 20 years experience within the industry.

We specialise in daylight and sunlight analysis, ensuring that proposed developments do not have a detrimental impact on existing residents. We assess sunlight to ensure amenity spaces achieve an adequate level of sunshine throughout the year... we all need a little vitamin D no matter where we live! These reports assist with Planning Applications and enable the Planners to assess the proposals with health and well-being of residents in mind.

We analyse overheating within buildings to ensure occupants have acceptable levels of thermal comfort, particularly as many buildings have highly glazed facades.

We also assess energy efficiency of buildings and lodge Energy Performance Certificates which show the rating for the building.

We pride ourselves in providing our clients with an excellent and professional service whilst simplifying the sometimes difficult concept of daylighting / overheating calculations.
