Are you concerned about nature?

If you are an architect, you should be!

Architects know that sustainability is the most important trend in architecture and construction today. Discover how GRAPHISOFT’s award-winning EcoDesigner can help your design decisions by providing precise forecasts about the annual total and specific energy consumption, monthly energy balance, and carbon footprint of your project.

EcoDesigner, the world’s first, fully-integrated dynamic building energy modeling application, allows architects to compare the sustainability of various design options and change the project in the early design phase, when it is still easy to do so. Dynamic energy analysis, combined with intuitiveness and ease-of-use makes EcoDesigner for ArchiCAD the Number One building energy information modeling tool on the world’s BIM market.

Two case studies will demonstrate how architects can learn to perform quick energy analyses at any stage of their design. The first case study looks at an existing, low-energy building to verify the accuracy of the calculation performed by EcoDesigner. The second one demonstrates how BIM-integrated energy simulation is used to predict the efficiency of sustainability retrofit on a number of large buildings, simultaneously.
