With our continued efforts in enhancing sustainability in all of our projects, we have been looking into early-design daylight and energy analysis. By upgrading our energy modeling IES VE plug-ins, we have added increased functionality and efficiency, when estimating the performance of a building. The beauty of IES is you get absolute energy use numbers for the whole building and breakdown by heating, cooling, lights and equipment. IES also calculates the amount of carbon dioxide emitted due to the building operation. Another great feature with IES is the toolkit that gives you interesting and graphically pleasing information along with basic building guidelines.
Whether working on a new build or renovation projects, building performance simulation software allows to test different design options, identify best passive solutions, compare low-carbon technologies, and draw conclusions on energy use, CO2 emissions, occupant comfort, light levels, airflow, QSAS, LEED, EPC ratings, and much more. It’s another value-added benefit to our clients.
