Simone Pagani Expert panel member
Simone graduated from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design studying Spatial Design, and continued on to achieve a distinction for an MSc at London Metropolitan University in Architecture, Energy and Sustainability under the guidance of the late Prof. Mike Wilson. Working for a year in an architecture studio, he subsequently joined GIA in 2007 and established the Daylight Design Department, with the aim of helping architects and developers optimise the use of daylight and sunlight during the design stages of a project.
GIA’s Daylight team specialise in new and bespoke analyses which have, over the years, become standard in the industry - including solar glare, light pollution, and solar convergence assessments. Simone assisted Network Rail in putting together their guidance on train glare and participated in establishing the methodology, assessments, and guidance for solar convergence in the UK, headed byDr. Paul Littlefair. Simone has been instrumental in providing guidance for Local Authorities since the release of the updated BRE Guidance in June 2022 (BR: 209). He has worked on some of London’s most remarkable developments, including 20 Fenchurch Street, Battersea Power Station, Wood Wharf and 22 Bishopsgate.

GIA has recently developed a new digital application that delivers quantitative analysis and scheme optimisation in a 60 minute workshop. Harnessing the power of the VU.CITY platform,  the app has major implications for site feasibility studies, contextual appraisals and portfolio review. It includes the ability to conduct live, visual analysis of daylight, sunlight and overshadowing fully in accordance with the latest BRE guidance, identifying risks, highlighting potential for injunctions and quantifying compensation budgets using an accurate compensation calculator.
