The goal of this discussion is to demystify building performance modeling. Computer-simulations give you a more complete picture of how various context and design factors can affect the performance of your space. Modeling information can help you analyze the impacts of your design decisions and determine how to most effectively meet project goals.
Energy modeling is also valuable tool used for code compliance and LEED points. Not to mention the fancy graphics that models produce to show your clientele your commitment to performance-based design.
This discussion will present various opportunities that can arise from building performance simulations with analysis at the early design, whole building, and building component levels. We will examine the following types of analysis:
• Massing and orientation
• Whole building energy usage forecast
• Fenestration design
• Façade development
• Zone level energy performance
• Baseline and design case models
• System selection and optimization
