Thermal Modelling / Overheating / BB101 Assessments

Thermal modelling can be used to evaluate designs and deliver energy efficiency and environmental comfort.

  • Assess the potential for over-heating at design stage.
  • Assess natural ventilation strategies, solar shading and high thermal mass structures.
  • Assess proposals for Building Bulletin 101 (BB101): Ventilation of school buildings compliance.
  • Evaluate the performance benefits between utilising bris-soleil or solar control glazing.

  • New Part O Building Regulation for overheating is now in place for all dwellings.

Gladwood use IES Virtual Environment software utilises the sophisticated ‘Apache Simulation’ thermal modelling engine to model a building’s behaviour.
