The OPTIMISE project focused on the development of an Optimisation Tool that gives better guidance on the impact of design decisions and enables the delivery of low impact and zero carbon buildings. The tool optimises complex design factors such as glazed area, choice of construction materials, building orientation and compliance based on objectives such as energy consumption, carbon emissions and cost, and constraints such as achieving specific daylight factor values.
IES led the OPTIMISE project to take advantage of IES' existing 3D dynamic simulation modelling software (IESVE). The software was integrated with optimisation algorithms, devised by project partners, Loughborough University, to respond to dynamic changes in the design process.
