IES and Breathing Buildings collaborate to provide new VE performance component

By Suzanne Wallace on Thursday 9 March 2017

We’ve been working with Breathing Buildings for several months now, and today we’re excited to announced the result of that collaboration – a brand new performance component within the VE for Breathing Buildings’ NVHR low energy hybrid ventilation system.

The new component uses IES Navigator technology to streamline and automate the integration of the component with the IES 3D building model. The Navigator includes guidance for Part L2 (UK) and provides automated CIBSE TM52 reportage. The Navigators step-by-step feature means that it’s easy to use, even if you are a first time user.

Other features include, in-model checks and model warnings to help users ensure the system is set up correctly. And In-model colour coding is also a useful feature to show that the model is correctly set up in preparation for simulation.

Our VE for Engineers suite features a library of predefined 3D component representations of manufacturers systems that can be dragged easily from a catalogue of products onto a building model constructed within the VE. We’re excited to add the Breathing Buildings NVHR low energy hybrid ventilation system to this library, allowing our customers to easily assess performance and energy savings, as well as ease the process for passing UK regulations.
