Overview

Ensuring your designs meet performance targets at the early design stages has never been easier with DesignBuilder Architectural software. Whether you import your models from 3-D BIM or draw directly in our modeller, DesignBuilder provides accurate energy, comfort, cost and daylighting performance data to help inform and guide your design decisions.

Flexibility

Quickly model concept designs and easily develop your model as the design evolves. You choose the level of accuracy and complexity relevant to the design stage, so the days of ditching a simplified early-stage model and having to use different software as the design evolves are gone.

Design confidence

EnergyPlus and Radiance, the most powerful, credible and globally well-respected simulation engines, sit behind an interface that is designed for ease of use. This unique combination minimises error, improves modelling accuracy and provides confidence in results.

Productivity

Our 3-D modeller is fast and easy to both learn and use. Import models from BIM tools such as Revit, or quickly create your geometry within DesignBuilder. Innovative and fast data input and QA-checking methods help to eliminate errors so you can quickly test the performance of design options.

Integrated decision-making

Full integration between energy, daylighting and comfort analysis tools provides a holistic view of performance so you can make fast design decisions with confidence from a single model. Quickly see the impacts of design decisions such as shading and glazing areas on daylight performance and cooling loads.

Daylighting

Optimise daylight availability using the trusted Radiance and Daysim engines. As well as traditional daylight factor calculations you can also use the latest dynamic methods to check for a high-quality balanced daylighting solution without glare by considering both Spacial Daylight Autonomy and Annual Sunlight Exposure.

Visualisation

High-quality graphic outputs help you quantify performance, clarify your ideas, and then communicate that to give your client confidence in the results. Tell your story using DesignBuilder parametric design optimisation diagrams, rendered visualisations, data plotting on the model, solar shading diagrams, section cut-throughs and many more.

The Architectural simulation packages allow you to analyse solar shading, maximise the use of renewable technologies and test facade options all in one place, adjusting as you go according to client requirements.

High quality technical and rendered outputs help communicate findings to clients in a way they can easily understand. Key performance indicators such as energy consumption, CO2 emissions, thermal comfort, daylight availability and cost can all be provided throughout the design process in both naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings.

DesignBuilder’s uniquely configurable user interface supports effective interdisciplinary workflows allowing early stage architectural models to be picked up later in the design process by engineers and expert energy modelling teams for more detailed design and certification work.
