• Import 3D BIM model from Revit® Architecture and MEP into IES's software for sustainable performance analysis
  • Make energy modelling and environmental responsiveness a core component of the design process
  • Integrate design and performance models to deliver empowering performance analysis and facilitate interdisciplinary decision-making
  • Easily fit analysis into the design workflow
  • Quickly react to design changes- ensuring that cost, energy performance and design intent is kept in mind throughout the process
  • Enable whole team collaboration across the design stage and minimise energy consumption

Technical Details

IES’s specially developed Revit plug-in Toolbar allows Revit® Architecture and MEP users to import their 3D BIM model into IES’s software and undertake sustainable performance analysis. It works with version 2008 onwards and sits as an integrated Toolbar.

Drop down menus take you through the ‘Setting Model Properties’ process step-by-step. All you need is basic information on building type, construction materials, and heating and cooling system types, at either the whole building or room level depending on what stage you are at in the design process.

Access the different IES performance analysis products by clicking the relevant button. Each product offers different levels of functionality; whether you are an architect or an engineer, want top-level information or want to explore in more detail, there is a solution for you.

Investigate through analysis where substantial reductions in energy use can be realised and calculate performance against rating systems and regulation compliance.

That way the design team can take action right from the initial stages of the design process, quickly and easily, to investigate through analysis:

  • Where substantial reductions in energy use can be realised.
  • Performance against rating system and regulation compliance.
  • The impact of different strategies on occupant comfort.
  • The potential trade-offs between daylighting and cooling energy loads and consumption.
  • How the design process can be streamlined and informed.

How to access the Revit Plug-in

The Revit plug-in is included in all IESVE software installations. If you already have Revit installed on your machine the Toolbar will automatically appear when you next open the application. VE-Ware and VE-Toolkits are designed exclusively for use with this plug-in to undertake early iterative assessments. VE Gaia and VE-Pro, allow you to edit model properties in detail, and undertake more advance analyses.
