Empowering Architects to Achieve Zero-Carbon Designs
Architects are having to adapt their design processes as they rise to the challenge of zero-carbon buildings. Thousands of firms have committed to ambitious zero carbon pledges such as the AIA Net-Zero Commitment and the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge. However, to deliver on these they need to be embedding building performance evaluation throughout every stage of their design workflows, from pre-design through into operation. Continually tracking progress and assessing the impact that design decisions will ultimately have on a building’s energy performance and whole-life carbon ouput.
IES provide tools to help architects to achieve exactly that. Making it possible to futureproof their designs and understand the impact that even the earliest decisions made will have across all aspects of comfort, energy, carbon and costs.
