Energy Performance

Innovative Design utilizes the most advanced analytical tools available for whole-building energy analysis.
Because Innovative Design is an architectural firm, our focus is to seek out programs that truly help us in our design process, not just provide the mechanical equipment size at the end of CDs.
 eQUEST and TRNSYS are the main programs we currently utilize for our whole-building simulations and thermal performance analysis. We recently developed a Daysim/eQUEST Workshop for engineers and architects in which we detailed the process by which the results from Daysim can be utilized within eQUEST to better simulate the actual performance of daylighting strategies.
