Performance Simulation – "EEM" Analysis
"Energy-Efficiency Measure" evaluation helps compare the impact of various design strategies for lowering utility costs and energy consumption. By charting EEMs one at a time, it is easy to see which measures have the most impact on cost and energy efficiency and select the best combination.
Performance Simulation– Whole-Building LCC Analysis
Building Life-Cycle Cost "BLCC" estimating compares various up-front cost options based on various EEMs to determine the best value and optimal payback period for the whole project. We provide consulting to design professionals or can help you directly with your project.
Performance Simulation– Whole-Building LCA Analysis
Building Life-Cycle Assessment "LCA" compares the ecological impact of various building construction systems, including greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and eutrophication. We provide consulting to design professionals or can help you directly with your project.
Belle Rivers Life-Cycle Assessment
To help Belle Rivers Workforce Housing achieve NGBS Certification, Sustainable Architecture PLLC performed a whole-building LCA. Reductions in harmful ecological impact included: fossil fuel consumption 19%, global warming 12%, acidification 42%, eutrophication 37%, ozone depletion 12%.Belle Rivers LCA Report
