Abstract: The effect of glare has become an issue of concern in the recent years due to the trend of adopting sleek façade design using reflective material for buildings to look aesthetically pleasing. In response to this concern, Building and Construction Authority (BCA) introduced the performance requirements on daylight reflectance in 2016 to impose restriction on the reflectance value to a limit of 20% for glass material. However, no study has been conducted in Singapore to prove the practicality of imposing this limitation for daylight reflectance of glass. Thus, this thesis provides a countercheck for the requirement set out by BCA through a case study of Hotel Boss building, whereby complaints of glare has been received. Furthermore, the assessment of the 5 glare indices – Unified Glare Rating (UGR), CIE Glare Index (CGI), Daylight Glare Index (DGI), Daylight Glare Probability (DGP), and Discomfort Glare Rating (DGR) would also be examined in this thesis. The comparison results indicate that DGP method is the most accurate and suitable index in simulating daylight glare. Moreover, parametric simulation will be executed to analyse the parameters affecting the glare index of Hotel Boss building and causes visual discomfort to the surrounding building. The correlation of these parameters and DGP were analysed in the analysis section of the thesis and it can be concluded that the parameters of distance, orientation, time of the day, sun position, and reflectance will influence the DGP and illuminance value to a certain extent. Lastly, the current research did not consider the parameters related to building design such as building height, building shape, window-to-wall ratio, and shading device, which accounts for the limitations of this study.
