The climate experts from Weatherpark analyse construction projects, town districts and entire cities according to meteorological factors such as heat and wind. We can advise you on the measures required to ensure a high quality of life for everyone in conjunction with urban development, vegetation and surfaces – despite the climate crisis.
The weather is really hotting up – in the next few years we’ll notice the climate crisis more often and to an increasing extent. You can adapt your town or city to the rise in temperatures and so ensure the quality of life there. This is why Weatherpark is investigating climatic conditions and the factors influencing them. We offer strategic consultancy and can provide you with an urban climate analysis and a planning advice map with specific recommendations for action.
Cold air induction corridors allow not just fresh air but also cooler air to enter built-up areas. This is very important if they are to cool down at night. Weatherpark examines whether a project reduces the formation of cold air (e.g. by building over green spaces) or adversely affects the flows of cold air (e.g. by obstructing them through the orientation of buildings, their size, etc.).
Staying indoors when it’s hot isn’t the solution either. With the right measures the microclimate in streets and squares can remain pleasant even when temperatures are high. Weatherpark will advise on specific measures at each location to ensure the right combination of sun, ventilation and shade.
Wind comfort: how to ensure satisfactory wind conditions around buildings
The wind is so strong around some houses you can’t even get the door open. Existing buildings can influence the local wind situation and cause high wind speeds around them. Weatherpark will draw up a wind comfort study and advise you how to prevent this, so ensuring that unoccupied space around an existing or a new building can be used to its full extent.
Further services: We perform research, hold lectures, help with selecting blinds, and a whole lot more.
We are delighted to advise on all questions involving climate and meteorology. We can help you for example when selecting sun protection for your property (venetian blinds, gathered blinds, sun blinds, vertical/drop arm awnings) so they’re right for the local wind situation. We are also constantly engaged in ongoing research projects, hold lectures and teach at universities.
