Transient Overshadowing

In a dense urban environment where shadows overlap constantly, it can be almost impossible to discern the impact of a proposed development from that of the surrounding buildings.

Whether highlighting differences between the existing and proposed scenarios or testing several designs, an ability to plot shadow paths throughout the year is invaluable.

Our bespoke assessment tool colours the shadows cast by individual buildings, making the impact unmistakably readable.

This assessment is used to illustrate the location of shadows at different times of the day and year to show where developments may affect a number of gardens or open spaces in the surrounding area.
