Test Before Build

Energy simulation modelling allows different ideas and combinations to be tested in the computer before the first brick has been laid. Considering double glazing? free cooling? heat pumps? the annual energy impact can simulated and the results analysed, providing more accurate investment guidance at concept stage.

The same idea applies to retrofits, input the test parameters, lets say improving the building chiller COP, run the energy simulation with the new data, and compare the results, then make your investment decisions, based on hard data.

Whole Life Time Cost Of Building

The construction cost is say 2-5% of the lifetime cost, it means its important to study and optimise the whole life of the building before breaking ground.

Decisions are all made at the design stage, at least the important ones are, but these can be amended while the building is still on drawing board, before any concrete is poured or orders placed. Glazed units and windows, having a low U value (high performance) as low as 1.5 - 1.6 W/sqmk are easily available (2017) without breaking the bank.
