We offer services for the building construction to optimise its energy performance, thermal comfort, lighting comfort and efficiency during the design stage. Based on the architect’s design, we run a building performance simulation then provide the estimated energy, daylighting, lighting, thermal comfort, computational fluid dynamic (to scan and analyse the air flow within the building) and onsite renewable energy generation performance. Further to this service, the developer and architect can proceed to the building design optimisation consultation services (please see GREEN BUILDING DESIGN & GBI FACILITATOR Section) to improve the building’s performance.
We use Sketchup, OpenStudio and DesignBuilder simulation software powered by the EnergyPlus simulation engine to generate the building performance. The EnergyPlus simulation engine (from the US Department of Energy) has been used extensively for building modelling in previous scientific research. It provides an intuitive interface and high-resolution data output on energy consumption, carbon emissions, occupant comfort and daylight availability with proven high accuracy.
