How is the provision of daylighting design measured?
To provide flexibility for architects and designers, while also making the standard useable and understandable, EN 17037 sets a minimum level of performance that must be achieved for each of the four areas of daylighting design.
As well as the minimum recommendation, it also gives two further performance levels: medium and high. Users of the standard are free to select the performance level that best relates to the building design and proposed building use. A simplified and detailed method is available with which to assess each design area.
