GIA were excited to provide daylight and sunlight as well as wind microclimate services on this project, using computational fluid dynamics or “CFD”. CFD is a digitally simulated wind tunnel test that replicates a physical wind tunnel. CFD assessments can provide significant programme and budget advantages over traditional assessment methods.
