For 1 AIA LU credit, take this test after watching our webinar.
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
