Climate ecologic assessments

We provide you with comprehensive support for all requirements in planning practice to consider a healthy settlement climate.

 

Settlement-climatic aspects can be directly influenced by the human being and are therefore fixed components of spatial planning. We provide you with comprehensive support for:

 

  • Analyzes and forecasts in the framework of the environmental assessment for the preparatory and binding land use planning (land use plan, development plan)
  • Development of measures for the reduction of local (occurring within the planned area) and regional (occurring in the adjoining residential areas) human bioclimatic impairments
  • Investigations on the climate-optimized definition of binding regulations in the development plan
  • Recommendations for climatically favorable installation variants of plans and development plans and / or project-related development plans
  • Valuations of individual measures in the field of action Bioklima (city green, albedo elevation, unsealing, façade and roof greening)


As a basis for this, we determine the most important climatological parameters as well as the resulting processes and functional relationships in their comprehensive, three-dimensional form:

 

  • Air temperature
  • Ground-near flow
  • Cold air volume flow
  • Cold air production rate
  • Equalization structure / Effect structure
  • Conduits for cold air flows
  • Cold air inactivating areas
  • Human bioclimate indices (UTCI, PMV, PET)
  • Human bioclimatic favored and unfavorable spaces


The analysis of the current state as compared to the prognostic calculations of the project-related changes result in the planning-relevant climatic assessments. Our services range from the simple report to the comprehensive comparison of detailed analysis and forecast calculations based on highly developed numerical models. Individual development and action scenarios can graphicly be compared and assessed with regard to their effects. We develop specific planning recommendations with you which are suitable to avoid or minimize potential impairments.
