EcoDesigner Star part of the Archicad Platform performs quick energy
analysis, for architects at the detailed design & documentation stages
generating reliable reports and analysis for standard compliant energy
simulation according to international energy standards (ASHRAE 140).
Why is this important? Buildings are the top consumers of energy overall and
the top contributors to climate change – so it is imperative for architects to see
the role they play in the global effort to reduce energy use and comply with
global and local energy regulations. History has shown that design decisions
made at the beginning phases of a project determine about 80% of the energy
characteristics. Use of this software can simplify that first step, calculating
energy use at the very birth of the building, even before ground is broken or
any foundation is poured.
Our in house designer is trained on Archicad BIM to implement these energy models
and assist with the preliminary stages of your design, Just send us a PDF orDWG file
and we can construct this model for you.
Goslin & Co advise with UK Building Regulations including supporting information for Sustainability statements, Code assessments and Appendices for Planning Compliance. We also provide a design service visualising your project with planning and building regulation drawings and with the Eco-designer add-on for Archicad this includes 3 dimensional visualisation.
