High performance building design
Today, your buildings can be measured throughout the design process to determine
environmental impacts and energy performance to reduce life cycle cost.
Autodesk Green Building Studio
Autodesk Green Building Studio energy-analysis software enables architects and designers to perform whole-building analysis, optimize energy consumption, and work toward carbon-neutral building designs earlier in the design process. Cloud-based energy-efficiency software helps teams achieve sustainable building designs faster and more accurately with powerful energy- and carbon-analysis tools.
Autodesk Revit is a comprehensive BIM software solution that supports documentation of information that can support CaGBC’s LEED certification and others, such as the International Living Institute’s Living Building Challenge. Revit’s database nature is conducive to extracting information and quickly iterating through various design options.
Lighting Analysis for Revit
Lighting Analysis for Autodesk Revit is a fast cloud service that uses A360 Rendering to expose electric and solar lighting results directly on the Revit model. The results are validated against Radiance, a commonly used simulation tool, and displayed in-canvas more quickly. The service also offers automated daylighting analysis for LEED as a plugin inside of Revit.
Revit Credit Manager for LEED
Offered as an Autodesk Labs product, RCM for LEED attempts to automate calculations required for certain LEED submittals through a plugin for Revit 2014 and 2015.
