Hosted in conjunction with CAD Software Direct's Eco-Home competition!
Climate change and sustainable design are at the forefront of today's conversation. When doing sustainable and energy-efficient design, integrated design tools can help you be more efficient and make quicker decisions during design phases. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to assess the energy performance of a building very early on in an integrated design process — this gives architects the power to make informed design decisions, as well as the ability to back those decisions up.
- Discover the benefits of integrating energy performance evaluation into architectural design workflows.
- Explore how a building's form and shape affect its energy performance.
- Learn how various shading percentages and different types of shading can guide your design decision based on expected building performance.
- Evaluate energy performance changes based on building elements, boundary conditions, and U-values.
