It consists in developing a schematic model that diagnoses energetic performance and building comfort, by analyzing energy optimization opportunities on the building’s envelope, mainly in its facade (prior to being completely defined).
AVERAGE ANNUAL COMFORT
Building comfort is the result of the different strategies utilized on the project. Different combinations obtain diverse results aiming for the best strategic combination.
Conceptual stage is the one with the biggest impact opportunity and the lowest cost. This methodology allows design teams to make informed decisions to detect opportunities before establishing a specific volumetric enveloping design.
Regional and urban climate is analyzed precisely trough specialized software, in order to pick the right volumetric and enveloping strategy for the project.
Solar path understanding is fundamental for diverse climatic strategies such as solar chimneys, radiation blockers, atrios and more.
Shadowing analysis offers design team a vision on how entournage impacts the project or in case of greater heights, how the project impacts its surrounding environment.
