Energy & cost optimization: Multi-objective optimisation tools for advanced cost-benefit analysis. Uncertainty Analysis reports confidence levels in simulation outputs based on uncertainties in specific inputs. Sensitivity Analysis reports on the design variables having the greatest/least impact on your key simulation results. Often carried out as a preliminary step, sensitivity analysis can be used to help identify any less important design variables so they can be removed from an optimisation analysis.
Green BIM: Green Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the application of BIM to provide data for energy performance evaluation and sustainability assessment. Green BIM also includes the application of Building Energy Modeling and deals with energy optimization to improve the energy efficiency of a building along with sustainable design and construction practices during its lifecycle.
Building Commissioning is the professional practice that ensures buildings are delivered according to the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR). Buildings that are properly commissioned typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy efficient, and have lower operation and maintenance cost.
Post-occupancy evaluation: (POE) of buildings is vitally needed to ensure that building performance of government and public buildings and facilities is sustained. POE of buildings is of utmost importance in building performance evaluation, as it comprises the technique that is used to evaluate whether a building meets the user’s requirements
