DesignBuilder: rapid early-stage analysis through to detailed performance modelling



This webinar will show how DesignBuilder can be used to create quick early-stage models, and then how that same model can be developed through the project for use in detailed design and for performance rating schemes such as LEED and BREEAM. We will also provide an advance preview of new features coming this summer.

DesignBuilder is best known for providing an efficient easy-to-use interface to EnergyPlus, enabling you to quickly create building geometry or import it from other BIM tools and access powerful EnergyPlus features like detailed HVAC and the airflow network for natural ventilation modeling. Whilst that is true, this webinar will also show that there is much more to DesignBuilder than many people realise. A core model that can also be used for accurate load calculations, daylighting, CFD, optimisation and advanced cost-benefit analysis...all available directly within one fully-integrated interface that is easy to learn and use.

This webinar will show a simulation tool that empowers the modeler to choose the right level of accuracy at the right time in the evolution of your project.


This webinar will be presented by Andy Tindale and Dave Cocking.
