Thermal modelling can be used to evaluate designs and deliver energy efficiency and environmental comfort.
- Assess the potential for over-heating at design stage.
- Assess natural ventilation strategies, solar shading and high thermal mass structures.
- Assess proposals for Building Bulletin 101 (BB101): Ventilation of school buildings compliance.
Evaluate the performance benefits between utilising bris-soleil or solar control glazing.
- New Part O Building Regulation for overheating is now in place for all dwellings.
Gladwood use IES Virtual Environment software utilises the sophisticated ‘Apache Simulation’ thermal modelling engine to model a building’s behaviour.
