What our customers say...
"As a VE user in Vancouver I can say with complete confidence that there is no other tool in use here which offers the same level of detailed inputs and reporting. The level of control offered by the VE over all of the input data and extraction of results pushes it to a level above any other tools being used here at present and raises the standard."
Chris Flood, Cobalt Engineering LLP
“The Virtual Environment allowed us to see the impact our ideas would have on the energy consumption of these buildings. And the superior graphics, visualization and presentation capabilities made it easy to communicate the benefits to our client.”
Brian Tysoe, MCW Consultants
"Halcrow recognise the need for the use of software such as the IES <VE>, as it provides the designer with both the opportunity and tools to perform detailed analyses of the building’s energy and environmental performance before a single brick has been laid."
Jim Benson, Halcrow Group
"We want to tackle fundamental building services aspects at the front end of the process. The IES <VE> allows us to achieve this."
