Using FenestraPro To Meet Architecture 2030 Challenge Targets
October 15, 2020
Architecture 2030; 2030 Palette
Architecture 2030 is the leading initiative in driving down fossil-fuel emissions to meet an almost zero net carbon emission by 2030. Urban building infrastructure accounts for over 70% of these carbon emissions, leading for the initiative to increase targets every 5 years to ensure architectural and building planning firms meet the targets.
As part of the initiative, the Architecture 2030 challenge encourages architects to use software tools that enables them to identify energy-efficient measures and assess the impact they have on building performance. As the façade accounts for almost 50% of a building’s energy usage, it is imperative that architects consider solutions to reduce energy use using shading and performance enhancing assemblies. FenestraPro is the leading façade design platform in architecture, enabling architects to analyse building performance metrics such as solar heat gain, daylighting and heat loss of both solid and glazed elements of the building envelope.
FenestraPro offers standardized reports at all stages of the design and custom charts to examine element heat loss and solar gain in occupied spaces. With the goal of optimizing solar heat gain and using renewable energy to heat and cool the building when necessary, architects use FenestraPro in collaboration with Architecture 2030 and 2030Palette to understand the impact of design decisions and performance data reported.
Over 80% of the top architectural and planning firms in the United States,including HDR, AECOM, HOK, and HKS, have accepted the Architecture 2030 Challenge and use FenestraPro to calculate energy reductions within facades.
