Overheating & Thermal Comfort Modelling

Helping our clients develop buildings that are comfortable all year round

With global temperatures rising as a result of climate change, it is becoming increasingly vital to mitigate overheating risk in both domestic and non-domestic buildings.

Considering overheating risk at early design stages is essential to ensure the building design is thermally comfortable for its occupants in current and future climate scenarios.
