Integrated Environmental Solutions Limited announced that it has developed a free plug-in to Autodesk’s Revit Architecture which provides a direct link to its
This new development enables architects to investigate the building’s performance at early stages in the design process without any specialist simulation knowledge or the need to re-input geometry data, and without leaving the Revit environment. It allows the Revit Architecture BIM model to be easily and quickly imported into IES’s unique system of integrated building performance analysis tools.
By clicking the IES toolbar in Revit Architecture, the BIM model is transferred into the IES
Within Revit Architecture, the main
Analysis of a building’s performance at the early concept stages of the design process allows architects to make informed decisions about orientation, layout, form and construction. Furthermore, generating such high quality building performance information at the early stage of the design process makes it easier to design sustainable, low energy buildings.
