Energy/Lighting/Performance Analysis

Lighting Analysts, Inc.

ElumTools

Calculate and visualize lighting results inside Revit with ElumTools™. ElumTools leverages Revit content such as geometry, material properties and light sources to calculate point-by-point illuminance on any surface or workplane. An interactive visualization provides details of each illuminated scene. You will love the incredibly easy workflow!

Sefaira

Sefaira Architecture & Sefaira Systems

Sefaira is a cloud-based sustainability analysis tool built for the early stages of design. Sefaira provides rapid feedback on whole-building energy and water use, carbon emissions, utility costs, renewable energy potential and HVAC sizing. Users can parametrically explore designs, simultaneously analyze multiple concepts, and directly analyze SketchUp and Revit models.

IES Ltd.

Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES)

IES's <Virtual Environment> performance analysis software enables green building design. Test design alternatives, identify best passive solar principles, compare high-performance technologies and draw conclusions on energy use, CO2 emissions, occupant comfort and LEED compliance. Our direct link to Autodesk Revit integrates these capabilities into BIM. Use yourself or employ IES Consulting.
