CLIMATE ANALYSIS

Climate analysis is the starting point of all design projects. Climate analysis will include the following studies to determine the design strategies at conceptual design stage.

Solar analysis is extremely helpful at the early stages of design development, where day lighting and solar gains are important factor in defining the footprint and basic envelope. The Sun path analysis design of exterior shading, Shading analysis and wind analysis would provide help an architect at the initial stage of the design to create high energy performing buildings.

Benefits of Climate analysis:

The project will reap following benefits by going through climate analysis:

  • Enhance daylight
  • Determine sun shading
  • Determine the envelope elevations
  • Determine the master plan with landscape layout
  • Ensure natural ventilation through wind analysis

At site level : At site level, sun path analysis helps in identification of proper orientation for a building and its relation with surrounding buildings. Strategies of mutual shading pockets, planning of fully shaded open areas, shading effect of surrounding building can be derived.

At building level : The analysis helps to determine the building self shadowing, extent of overshadowing on adjoining building on sun path diagram and percent area of walkways and pathways in shade for the critical times of the day due to existing and proposed landscape and building location on the site. The analysis helps in determining the distance between buildings in the design stage.

Shading analysis

The analysis helps in knowing in more accurate, the provision of glazing areas and shading devices accordingly. It helps in determining the shape and location of sunshade as well as its length. The analysis helps in find out the percentage shading on surface of the wall at any orientations at all orientations throughout the day.

Solar Insolation analysis

The analysis helps in knowing in more accurate, the provision of glazing areas and shading devices accordingly. It helps in determining the shape and location of sunshade as well as its length. The analysis helps in find out the percentage shading on surface of the wall at any orientations at all orientations throughout the day.
