Specialist Energy Modelling
Building energy modelling is a powerful tool to optimize a buildings form, envelope and systems to inform operation.
It supports an integrated design process to enable the best possible outcomes for project stakeholders. Quantifying building performance helps to maximise the return of investment from improved efficiency, integrated systems and renewable energy components.
WME’s expertise in energy modelling is used throughout the design process to provide scientific evidence to make data-driven design decisions. We address strategies in a hierarchical order to reflect their effectiveness by reducing energy use at the source, propose efficient and renewable energy systems to offset carbon emissions. Iterative dynamic simulations are performed within the context of a site to enhance thermal conditions and maximise comfort.
We perform compliance modelling to ensure projects meet relevant energy codes and local authority requirements. Daylight studies are also performed at initial design stages to reduce reliance on artificial lighting and maximize visual comfort.
