CSV Architects has developed a collaborative streamlined energy modelling process utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the newest in Energy Modeling Software.  By incorporating energy modeling into the Integrated Design Process (IDP) and taking into consideration factors such as wind and solar heat gain, the design team can make informed decisions on how certain site features should be placed or how the building should be oriented to take advantage of a site’s particular microclimate.

We have successfully used EE4 and EQuest for energy modelling on projects such as Huron Early Learning Centre and the Mcintosh Perry Carp Expansion.

We are currently using Sefaira in conjunction with SketchUp to bring energy modelling into the schematic design process and inform our designs right from the outset.  Sefaira helps analyze energy and daylighting performance to help provide lower construction and operating costs to clients.
