Building Energy Simulation

Building energy simulation is a technique using software to model allows different strategies 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 consumption can simulated and the results analysed, providing more accurate investment guidance at concept stage.

Test Before Build

The same principle applies to retrofits, input the energy use 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 Building Cost

The construction cost is say 2-5% of the total lifetime cost, therefore its important to study and optimise the lifetime cost before breaking ground.

Decisions are all made at the design stage, at least the important ones, 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/sqm/k are readily available (2017) without breaking the bank, that will save energy for the next 60 years.
