REC delivering Daylight and Lighting Impact Assessment services throughout the UK

Posted: 1st February 2017

REC, a national environmental consultancy and part of the Concept Life Sciences group, is now delivering Daylight and Lighting Impact Assessment services throughout the UK. As the latest addition to REC’s extensive range of environmental solutions, REC’s consultants will be delivering specialist Daylight and Lighting Impact Assessments to a range of residential, industrial, retail and sports clients.

Working in accordance with guidance published by the Building Research Establishment – guidance which is referenced by local authorities when determining planning applications – REC will provide comprehensive and detailed assessments; be they for Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing Assessments or Artificial Lighting Impact Assessments. REC will use the latest software to assess the impact of both natural and artificial light, and will provide advice and assistance to clients to enable lighting standards to be met in order to allow planning consent.

REC’s Business Development Director, Rob Whittle, said: “REC has been providing environmental solutions for over 20 years and providing Daylight and Lighting Impact Assessments is a natural addition to our services. Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing Assessments are a crucial part of any planning application where there is the potential to impact on a receptor’s access to natural light. Similarly, since light pollution was introduced as a form of statutory nuisance, Lighting Impact Assessments are vital for new and existing developments to ensure that the impact of light pollution is minimal.”
