Building performance modelling for sustainable building design
Through the use of engineering software, we have the ability to model the movement of light, air and energy in and around buildings before the construction process has begun.
Led by intuition and underpinned by computational analysis, the resulting efficiencies - buildings that make the most of their environment - are outstanding.
Light, heat and energy transfer – the factors that make a building breathe - are influenced by occupancy, the weather, building orientation, form, and fabric. Modelling these elements demonstrates how they affect each other enabling us, as the engineering team, to reach an optimum solution where they work together and contribute into energy saving.
Building performance modelling gets us closer to the desired goal of designing a building that is autonomous: one that exploits its natural environment to reduce its energy consumption. This process is a fundamental part of our design philosophy.
Early analysis like this simplifies the design and avoids poor engineering and the need for retrofits to reach the conditions originally sought.
