Participants in this webinar, led by François Lévy, architect, will gain familiarity with the role of the energy analysis in the architectural design process and learn how a building's aspect ratio, orientation, and thermal envelope characteristics affect energy performance. Viewers will also investigate how using an integrated energy analysis tool in the early stages of a BIM workflow can optimize schematic design. Attendees will explore a small residential project using an energy analysis module to understand how software supports such design processes.
- Understand the appropriate role of early energy analysis in architectural design processes
- Evaluate how thermal envelope decisions affects a building’s overall energy footprint
- Investigate the relative impact of individual building components on building performance
- Learn about the application and functions of an integrated energy analysis tool
