IES Faculty Event: Closing the Performance Gap
Invitation to our free seminars across the UK
09th July 2014
We’re bringing the next in our series of FREE Faculty events to key cities across the UK. In this session our experts will look at how our sophisticated Virtual Environment technology can help your building projects deliver on design expectations and close the gap between predicted and real performance.
We’ll share valuable case study experience and offer insight into future VE developments. We’ll look at how building simulation might evolve to have a more direct role in building operation; looking at the key role of the operational model in reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, as part of a Soft Landings approach.
We’ll also consider key elements of the future of building simulation: the cloud; BIM, simulation based control; Smart Cities; voluntary environmental rating systems; building compliance and continuous optimisation of building performance.
- Understand how to get the best out of the VE to help close the performance gap
- Find out more about future VE developments that could help to eradicate the gap between design and as‐built performance
- Discover real world project findings
- Learn more about calibrated models and their role in reducing energy consumption
- Gain insight into the future of building simulation from an IES perspective and what opportunities this offers both in the short and long term
