Over 1,200 architects have now pledged their support for the UK Architects Declare Climate and Biodiversity Emergency and more than 1,000 firms have committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2030 with the AIA 2030 Commitment. In addition, Architects and their governing bodies, now recognise that if we are serious in delivering a step change in sustainability, we cannot continue to allow the use of predicted outcomes as the absolute measure of project success.
RIBA’s 2030 Challenge addresses this issue, however, to achieve the performance targets it sets across operational energy use, water use and embodied carbon a step change in traditional practices is required.
To achieve RIBA’s sustainable outcomes, a design approach that embeds building performance evaluation is recommended. By providing feedback at every stage of the building lifecycle, right through to post-occupancy, this approach can help resolve the well-known performance gap between design intent and in-use performance to deliver real and lasting reductions in carbon emissions.
It's time to seize this opportunity, maintain core control over critical design decisions, and help our buildings become part of a zero carbon future. It's time to be part of the solution.
VE Gaia is the ideal tool for architects and designers during early feasibility stages. Helping to meet sustainable design goals and deliver healthy, zero-carbon buildings. Users can carry out early feasibility studies across:
Undertake sustainable master planning and urban design from the earliest project stages, even when data is sparse or non-existent. Go beyond just zoning and massing and integrate analysis across a wide range of sustainable metrics. iCD, a plug-in to SketchUp, is scalable from a simple campus, to a wider community or city, new or pre-existing and can be used to investigate:
With keynote speakers from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this on-demand webinar discusses the RIBA 2030 challenge, its Sustainable Outcomes Guide and the role Building Performance Evaluation has in meeting them. As well as the implications and opportunities for architects and urban designers, and highlights from recently developed tools from IES specifically designed to meet these challenges.
This web demo will showcase the capability of IES’ iCD technology and will demonstrate the different sustainable outcomes that can be analysed, and project applications.

To meet stringent performance target of 35% reduction on Part L 2013 Carbon Emissions, HLM used IES as part of an Integrated BIM enabled process.
CBT Architects used IES Software used in unique collaborative and integrated design process, saving Fitchburg State University $1.5 million.
IES delivered an interactive 3D visualisation and masterplanning model for NTU’s flagship ‘Living Lab’ programme, in addition to calibrated modelling, building performance simulation and analysis of energy reduction technologies across the campus.
IES partnered with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure to explore the use of its innovative digital twin technology to help create a net-zero or positive energy block (PEB) for a new development proposed by the UAE government.
