We are always keen to embrace the latest trends and innovations in building modelling and so we ensure that thermal modelling is incorporated into our designs. This means that our clients get the benefit of predicting the likely building performance in a virtual environment and explore ideas before any construction works take place.
Thermal modelling is a computerised simulation of a building that uses complex algorithms to accurately predict how a building will behave under certain conditions. These simulations can be performed on both existing buildings and those which are still at the desk top design stage. Typical building characteristics that can be assessed include:
- Heating and Cooling Loads
- Summertime Overheating
- Annual energy usage and CO2 emissions
- Brise Soleil and solar shading requirements
- Building orientation
Using this software means that we ae able to predict a building’s performance in a virtual environment and explore new ideas prior to any construction work. We can provide photorealistic images to help our clients get a feel for the finished result.
