BIM-integrated Sustainable Design

ARCHICAD’s improved Energy Evaluation engine supports multiple thermal blocks. This allows users to evaluate their designs with standard compliant technology and makes ARCHICAD the “greenest” BIM solution available on the market today.

Building Energy Evaluation

The built-in energy evaluation functionality of ARCHICAD uses StruSoft’s VIPcore calculation engines. As of version 17 ARCHICAD enables architects to perform improved energy evaluation based on standard-compliant technology, supporting multiple thermal blocks. As a result, designers can perform dynamic and accurate energy calculations, starting at the early design stages. The calculation input data and the evaluation results can be shared in various formats including PDF, XLS and IFC.
