Reflectivity & Glare Analysis Report

Unlock the full potential of your development with precision and compliance

Navigating the complexities of urban development requires more than just innovative design; it demands a commitment to environmental harmony and regulatory compliance.

Deneb Design’s Reflectivity and Glare Analysis is an essential preliminary report that’s not only cost-effective but can streamline your regulatory planning process.

Ideal for projects that have large areas of glazing, solar farms, large scale solar arrays, complex glazed facades (geometry) and typically a planning requirement for projects that adjoin infrastructure such as major arterial roads, rail lines and busy intersections.
