Through a detailed step-by-step workflow, the VE-Navigator makes LEED energy modeling easy and streamlines the LEED analysis and submission process, says the company. It improves modeling efficiency and enables users to model ASHRAE 90.1 and 62.1 baseline systems more accurately by automating key sizing and system processes.
ApacheHVAC enables users to simulate and review a building’s HVAC system as part of an integrated design process. It integrates with IES’ thermal analysis tool to provide a building-integrated approach where the HVAC system and building are assessed as a whole. This allows heat transfer and thermal mass in the building to be accounted for alongside system performance.
