Energy modelling is the use of computer-based simulations to assess energy consumption, daylighting effects and other characteristics of a building design. It allows for the analysis of various design considerations prior to the construction phase of a project. We help clients establish design strategies that will have the greatest effect on the building’s energy use and occupant comfort.
The most common models estimate energy use, energy expense, and carbon dioxide emissions. and take into account the effectiveness of natural ventilation strategies and daylight penetration, and can serve as confirmation that implemented systems are operating as expected once construction is complete.
Energy modelling has also become a valuable tool for occupier to test proposed carbon reduction proposals for existing workplaces or buildings. It allows us to assess any refurbishment or retrofit scenario proposed to establish ROI in terms of the effectiveness of the technology to save energy more importantly to realise savings in the form of ROI against initial capex costs.
