Even if our company’s name is Weatherpark, we can’t generally influence the weather – only the wind in the city! Wind can be routed between buildings, and we apply this expertly to optimise wind comfort around houses. Even the finest building can’t be used to the full extent if there’s constantly a piping wind on pathways, (roof) terraces, beer gardens and other open spaces such as playgrounds, etc.
Wind comfort is thus an important aspect when planning a new building. Weatherpark will calculate and simulate the current and future wind situation for you. Should the planned building result in strong winds occurring too frequently, we can develop measures together with our customer in the course of an interactive process. This may range from a minor change in the orientation of the building through little adjustments in the aerodynamic design to wind-optimised landscaping using trees and hedges. It is also possible to improve the wind situation with existing constructions.
Wind comfort is one of the factors affecting well-being not just around tower blocks, but also at lower-level buildings and in public squares. Gusting can be caused by wind corridors, which make it unpleasant when waiting for a bus or tram or sitting on a park bench or in a beer garden. The choice of the right location, glass screens or greening can all help here.
