Developing energy analytical models in simulation hasn’t remained optional for The AEC Associates Revit Modeling Services anymore, it has become necessary for the designers to ensure that the proposed building sets high standards in terms of performance and energy efficiency. Revit Modeling services can greatly help designers evaluate the future performance of the building by developing these energy analytical models during the initial phase of design conceptualization. These models give an opportunity to the architect to alter the design and composition of the structure to achieve the desired outcomes and results.
Intricacies of an energy analytical model
Revit Modeling services must deeply understand the process for simulating an energy analytical model to produce efficient ones. A few basic steps are discussed below to develop such a model.
- Using building elements
It’s necessary to use building elements and other related design and structural information for developing an accurate and precise energy model for the proposed building.
- Add other related info
It’s essential to add other related info, like climate and surroundings and materials etc, to make the energy analytical models complete and comprehensive.
- Information about important building parts
It’s essential to add info about important building parts, like walls, roof, floors etc, to ensure that an energy analytical model is complete and efficient.
- Functioning of Revit modeling software
One cannot hope to produce an efficient energy analytical model without getting well acquainted with the provisions of the Revit modeling software; training your staff well in the working of the software is important. For instance, you must know that selecting ‘Use building element mode’ is needed to set the important building elements as the basis of your design. Similarly, you need to understand the different features of the software to accomplish other required tasks and develop an effective, accurate energy model.
