Revit & the IES
There is now a direct link between the 3D modeling platform Revit and the IES
The Sustainability Toolkit
This is the first of the
Currently the Sustainability Toolkit consists of the following three tools & the following informaiton is provided by each report:
ASHRAE Loads calculation:
> System Heating Loads
> Room Heating Plant Loads
> System Cooling Loads
> Room Cooling Plant Loads
> Room Sensible Cooling and Air Flow Rates with engineering checks.
ApacheSim: Dynamic Thermal Simulation:
> Building Systems Energy Consumption for each month
> Monthly CO2 emissions for the building.
> Peak Hourly Room Loads plus cooling checks.
> Room Environmental Conditions including Comfort Measurements for occupied period
> Room Environmental Conditions including Comfort Measurements for all periods.
FlucsDL: Daylighting Assessment:
> Percentage of area above 25 fc.
> Average illuminance in each room.
> Average weighted percentage of area above 25 fc.
A series of Revit animations have been created to help demonstrate the integration of Revit MEP 2008 & the IES
