Used by sustainable design experts around the globe, the Virtual Environment (VE) is an in-depth suite of integrated analysis tools for the design and retrofit of buildings. The platform leverages a world-leading simulation engine to allow cross-team collaboration between architects, engineers and contractors, from concept design to operation. Embedding energy and performance analysis into the heart of the design process, and across the entire building lifecycle.
Tools for fast, accurate, sub-hourly, thermal building simulation of any size or complexity.
Quick and easy loads calculations and equipment sizing from the earliest stages of design.
Interoperate with BIM platforms for two-way information exchange and quick digital design.
Annual simulation of building performance modeling for energy, carbon, water, cost and comfort.
Lighting fixture & layout design and integrated annual daylight simulation.
Approved solutions for Florida Building Code, California Title 24, IECC, ASHRAE 90.1, AIA 2030, LEED and more.
Workflow navigator & Reports to demonstrate compliance with the NECB Standards, Provincial Step Code Metrics and LEED.
IES offers unrivalled interoperability with other CAD design and analysis tools. The smooth and robust two-way information exchange between VE and BIM platforms speeds up the design process and facilitates digital design.
