Getting the orientation and shadow casting right is essential. Raynes Architecture can build a simple computer model to check the efficiency of the Solar Photovoltaic units. Large buildings and estates, such as social housing, universities, colleges, hospitals, retail developments, schools and other developments can all benefit from a simple analysis to ensure the optimum return on investment.
Lisa was invited to work with Jacobs Eco and Lightfoot energy. In the video below, Raynes Architecture modeled Rolls Crescent School, Hulme, Manchester on the shortest day in winter to ensure no shadows are cast on the units. Sketches of proposed panels sited on buildings as well as the computer model print outs supported the planning application and enabled end users to visualize the proposals.
