The project

1 Olympic Way was formerly a 7-storey building with mixed residential and commercial use. Stadium Holdings Ltd acquired the property and sought to develop an extension and an additional 8-storeys to provide student accommodation.

Rapleys Neighbourly Matters team were instructed by the client to provide Daylight and Sunlight services (Internal and Neighbouring) and Rights to Light on the proposals for this development. We were instructed to assess and ensure the adequacy of daylight and sunlight received by the neighbouring properties and within the proposed development from a planning perspective. We also assessed the impact of the proposed development on the Rights to Light enjoyed by the neighbouring properties.

Rapleys visited the site and reviewed the proposals with the client and architect. We then compiled a comprehensive 3D model of the site and the relevant neighbouring properties, having undertaken background research into the room layouts and uses of these buildings.

We were instructed to assess and ensure the adequacy of daylight and sunlight received by the neighbouring properties and within the proposed development.

Our solution

  • Rapleys input was closely linked with the design process to ensure the development met the daylight and sunlight requirements
  • We also worked efficiently to ensure our assessment findings were submitted to the client in good time to achieve their planning submission target date
  • Our input allowed the client to make further investigations about the appropriate risk management strategies for the site
  • Planning permission for this scheme was granted by the Local Authority.
