Simulations: identify building characteristics and save costs.

High energy consumption, increasing operating costs and a lack of comfort after commissioning? No, thank you! Once the property is up and running, we want all parts of its in-building technical equipment to work perfectly and keep your investment and operating costs in line with calculations. This is why we apply building simulations in advance on your behalf. These map dynamic processes such as temperature levels and flow situations.

Whether they apply to just one critical area or to your entire building, our simulations provide an early indication of the really important operating factors of your property. In contrast to static considerations, you can calculate exactly where and how you save energy and costs, well in advance of completion of the technical planning and architectural details.

Outside-light and shade simulation

The lighting situation of a building depends on the time of year, time of day, and the light conditions of the surrounding area. Daylight simulations allow the designs of windows, sun protection systems and artificial lighting to be optimised. This not only improves the quality of life in the building, but delivers noticeable energy savings by means of the demand-based control of items like air-conditioning.

Thermal simulation

Thermal simulation captures all dynamic interactions, including seasonal factors, solar radiation, temperature and humidity. The data obtained can be used to determine the design of windows and building façades. Variable internal heat loads resulting from artificial lighting or electrical equipment, and their effects on indoor climate, are also taken into account.

Flow simulation

The ways in which flows of air travel through a building depend on many factors. Flow simulation identifies ventilation patterns inside a building on the basis of heat factors such as technical equipment or computers, as well as the people present. Planners can therefore access all the data needed to design the ventilation system.
