We believe that great buildings are not only aesthetically pleasing but also perform really well - with low energy consumption, good use of natural daylight and superb occupant comfort. But the early stages of design, when most of the big decisions are made (e.g. building form and orientation, facade, layout etc.), moves very fast and is over very quickly. So even though all but the simplest projects would benefit from building performance analysis to inform design decisions, it's hard to do that analysis early in the process.
In this presentation, we'll show you how to understand your building's performance quickly and easily, so you can ensure that your building not only looks great but performs well too. We show you how using Sefaira (a part of SketchUp since 2016) helps you keep your design on track for performance goals and also to demonstrate the performance benefits of your design ideas. In this presentation, we'll show you how doing performance analysis early helps you ensure that your building not only looks great but performs great too.
