Thermal modelling and building information modelling are transforming modern building design, saving costs and energy alike. Building information modelling is key to integrated work on larger projects, helping avoid costly last-minute changes, and supporting sustainable, energy-efficient designs.
Thermal modelling is vital to understanding the environmental impact of a building, its thermal performance, and carbon cost – so much so that this is increasingly required at the planning application stage.
EMEC utilises the latest building information and thermal modelling techniques and software to analyse the building physics of each and every project. From concept through to installation we work closely with the design team to deliver the most energy efficient and cost effective building achievable.
Our thermal modelling and BIM services include: heat loss and heat gain calculations, building thermal simulations and representations, computational fluid dynamics, shading calculations, ventilation modelling, energy forecasting and energy-efficient plant selection.
