Daylight Modeling Services
Integrating New Technologies for High-Performance
What is daylight analysis?
It is a computer simulation that allows design feedback and information sent to the design team in real-time on daylighting and thermal information. The GUI(3D parametric software) is linked to a validated analysis engine like radiance to create the simulation results. Daylight analysis allows information and ideas to flow as a design evolves and changes quickly.
Types of analysis
- Daylight Factors
- Daylight Autonomy
- Annual Sun Exposure
- Circadian Function
- Illuminance Calculation
What is involved?
Send us your model or drawings for modeling.
What you need to know:
- Location of the project.
- What are your surfaces and fenestrations to be used in the model?
- What are your questions regarding your building?
- Are there any special conditions such as surrounding buildings or other features about the project that are notable.
Duo-Gard provides 3rd party daylight modeling services through Environmental Light Sciences.
Environmental Light Sciences is a culmination of Tim Metcalfe’s life work of bringing sustainable, well-lit spaces to life. Focused on the human experience and how daylight creates a more productive environment, ELS looks at the whole group and the individual to meet there circadian needs as well as lighting requirements. Tim Metcalfe has a degree from the State University of NY in Engineering and has taken part in Executive Education at Harvard University, MIT, Parsons and many more. He was a presenter at the 2009 Radiance Conference and the 2012 National AIA on Daylight Modeling. In addition, Tim Metcalfe is a studio professor at the New School of Design.
