Evidence is required that non air-conditioned perimeter spaces will not experience excessive gains from the combined effects of solar gains from sunlight, heat emitted from fixed lighting, occupants and equipment. Assessment is made based on

Calculated heat gains for all perimeter spaces will be provided. For any problem areas identified, recommendations will be made on how the gains can be reduced to acceptable levels. Likely recommendations will be of the type:

We will discuss with you the suitability of the different options so that the most appropriate and cost effective changes can be implemented
