DesignBuilder provides advanced tools to model and quantify building performance in an easy-to-use interface. This enables your whole team to use the same software to quickly develop comfortable and energy-efficient building designs from concept through completion and into building operation.
DesignBuilder provides a fully-integrated set of high-productivity tools to assist with sustainable building design and performance analysis. Many types of energy and comfort analysis can be undertaken seamlessly from one base model, enabling you to meet more of your client needs and extract the maximum value from the time you invest in your modeling activity. Leading architects, engineers and energy modelers across the world use DesignBuilder to quantify the impact of their design strategies on building environmental performance. Or simply to demonstrate compliance with building regulatory codes and certification schemes such as LEED, Energy Star and BREEAM.
Link with BIM solutions to evaluate different alternative design scenarios for HVAC systems and controls, facades, lighting, renewable technologies all in one place, adjusting as you go according to client requirements.
High quality technical and rendered outputs help communicate findings to clients in a way they can easily understand. Key performance indicators such as energy consumption, peak heating and cooling loads, carbon emissions, thermal comfort, daylight availability and cost can be provided throughout the design process in both naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings.
If you are in the business of designing high-performance energy-efficient comfortable buildings, quantifying and evaluating energy conservation measures, or complying with codes and certification schemes then DesignBuilder can help you do it more quickly.
