Cities around the world are implementing zero-carbon targets, some as early as 2040. Clients are demanding buildings be zero-carbon more than ever, and energy targets are being implemented to attain this. These strict targets can only be achieved if building simulation is performed throughout the entire building life cycle. Detailed ApacheHVAC modelling and analysis allows a highly accurate virtual representation of buildings and their systems. High quality modelling improves design decisions, operational efficiency, HVAC system capacity and control. This detailed approach needs to be modelled on a sub hourly basis, and model meter outputs need to directly map to the metering configurations in real-buildings, such that there can be a direct comparison of modelled and metered data.
IES Consulting are perfectly placed to take your model the next level in HVAC performance. We can represent your design and then report on plant sizing and load matching to refine performance. We can provide schematic and 3D visual representations of the HVAC's performance which provides clear communication on the opportunities and risks associated with your building. Through this approach you can be confident in unlocking the true energy consumption of the HVAC systems integrated with your building.
Have more control over your HVAC design and more accurate results using HVAC modelling.
More control and feedback from your building toward better results
The HVAC model should be considered from Concept through to the Use RIBA stages. Make crucial design decisions, identify and assess trade-offs, meet zero-carbon targets and close the performance gap.
If you are looking to develop your skills or your project incorporates challenging design feautures then enlist the help of IES Consulting. As the expert users in applying the Virtual Environment we are best placed to share our knowledge and expertise for the benefit of your project. We offer tailored project mentoring to guide you step by step towards achieving your needs, ensuring confidence in the accuracy and delivery of the project.
With the effects of climate change expected to increase the external air temperature, buildings will see a shift toward an increased cooling need. If we are going to reduce our carbon emissions whilst minimising running costs then the onus will be on designers to correctly ensure their plant design is optimised.
