…where huge impacts can be made on the energy performance of the building, specifically the Thermal/Heat Loss, Solar Heat Gain and Daylighting considerations, which can so often work against each other. By using FenestraPro at early stages, the designer can understand how best to optimize the façade solution and understand the implications of their design decisions.
“We constantly seek to integrate innovative and cutting-edge tools… As an Add-in for Revit, FenestraPro Premium offers flexibility and quickness to test different forms, and provides detailed information about thermal, solar and daylight performance that helps us make informed decisions about building orientation, solar shading, and amount, distribution and type of glazing. Getting guidance on these decisions early in the design process offers the ability to have a greater positive impact on the design, and avoid cost implications of design changes later on.”
“There are so many options and ways that any design can go, and so many explorations that are happening on any project during the design phase. Being able to distil these options down to a set of criteria that allow you to meet the aesthetic demands and needs, while also optimising them for energy consumption is impossible without tools that pair those things together. There are not many, if any, tools that do that, besides FenestraPro.”
“FenestraPro Premium is a feature rich solution to a problem that has yet to be fully addressed and would be a great addition to any Energy analysis workflow. It’s like a full-on a separate program that is capable of doing a tonne of stuff and is one of the most “fully baked” add-ins I’ve seen.”
“The integration of environmental strategies in the early stage of facade design process has always been a challenge. Compliance energy modelling can be time-consuming and not flexible to adapt to design changes. FenestraPro is versatile, fast, can provide a continuous feedback loop, thus optimising the environmental response design process. ”
“FenestraPro Premium is a hugely valuable tool that enabled us to make decisions early, quickly, and in a far more quantifiable way. By giving us insight in to issues around the façade treatment, FenestraPro informed our design process very dynamically, and the ability to automatically optimise decisions like glazing percentage or shading depth is extremely useful.”
