Case for Building Simulation
IEN was invited to give a talk about building computer simulation and how simulation can benefit the building design process by informed decision-making. The presentation makes a compelling case for using building simulation, both to optimise the building performance (energy, daylight, rainwater harvesting etc) and also to minimise over-design (for example, over-sizing of the cooling system). As such, building simulation helps to decrease both the CAPEX and OPEX of building projects.
