    It’s early in the design process. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something that evaluated the benefit of adding insulation, the impact of installing heftier glazing, or the increased efficiency in rotating your building 10 degrees? Architects don’t want to get into energy “modeling.” That’s not their gig. Let's leave that to the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) professionals. Early energy analysis is the way to go, and tools within Revit software are available to help guide the process. In this session, we will investigate the tools available, including Insight 360 software, and the benefits of running energy analysis early in project design. We’ll discuss the fine line between energy “modeling” and energy “analysis,” as well as workflow implementation and documentation. This session features Revit. AIA Approved
