Rights to Light Surveys

Here at Modelling Architecture, we can assist you with a rights of light survey for your rights to light project no matter the size. We work closely with some of the biggest companies in the UK that produce the rights to light calculations based on our 3D CAD models. 

We produce accurate 3D CAD models of the site around the proposed development, giving the rights to light calculations team the best possible information to produce their reports.

Expert Rights to Light Surveyors

We understand just how important it is to get the Rights of light calculation right, therefore, we take extra care with each project to ensure you receive the highest quality results. We can assist with all aspects of the Rights to light planning process, to ensure your project adheres to the latest legislation.

The Rights of Light Survey Process

Firstly, 3D laser scanning is used across the site to capture the building’s dimensions. Secondly, we create a highly detailed 3D CAD model of the data captured onsite. Specific window positions on elevations that are agreed upon with the client in advance are then added to the model. These elevations are the areas that will be affected by any proposed work.

We can also provide 2D elevations showing the windows and structural openings in order for the Rights to light or daylight and sunlight calculation to be completed.

Why Choose Us For Your Rights of light surveys?

We can get you the results you need in a timely fashion, so you can get started on your development or construction project as soon as possible. As well as 2D and 3D elevations, we can also provide panoramic photography of the site in our rights to light consultations. This gives you even more visual information from the site inspection.

If you’re unsure of whether this is the right service for you, we’re more than happy to help. Contact our team in London today for guidance.
