Shadow Study

A shadow study can be used to identify the locations on a property which receive the most, or the least, amount of sun at various times of the year. We can look at the effect of neighbouring buildings and the surrounding topography. This can help during the design phase of a of a new development by showing the most desirable areas on a site.

The shadow study can aslo be used to show the effects of a proposed development on the existing neighbourhood. As housing developments intensify, Local Councils are increasngly requiring assessments on the shading caused by new developments on neighbouring properties.

3rd Dimension can assist by preparing a set of plans at various dates and times, as required. Examples of these plans are shown below.
