    See how Autodesk sustainability design tools were used for the Architecture 2030 initiative with Perkins+Will, Johnson Controls, and MasterGraphics.aec. The Perkins+Will case study centers around Director of Research John Haymaker’s "Design Space Construction / Sprout Space" project. Discover how Perkins+Will and MasterGraphics.aec used Dynamo Studio, Fractal, FormIt, Revit software, and Insight to meet design, energy (2030), and view quality requirements. Learn how Johnson Controls’s Clay Nesler (VP of global energy and sustainability) and MasterGraphics.aec used FormIt, Revit, and Insight on the JCI Shanghai HQ project, where they compared the accuracy of their existing process using other competing tools to the Insight workflow. In Mr. Nesler’s words, “this is uncanny”—to see not only how close the results were, but also how few hours were used to generate the schematic design, design development, and construction documents models for the comparison, and that a large ROI was discovered.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how 2 companies are utilizing the Autodesk sustainability tools
    • See how Dynamo, FormIt, Revit, and Insight can be best capitalized on for the Architecture 2030 initiative
    • Understand how the Insight sustainability workflow can be used by everyone in the firm, not just a select few, when compared to the competing products
    • Learn how “accuracy” is the new method to determine energy use intensity (EUI) to better design and build sustainable buildings
