if not exectured well it is very dangerous in architect's hands.
A simple tool that gives you building carbon emissions and energy balance is a great idea but if not exectured well it is very dangerous in architect's hands.in ecodesigner there is something that calculates the space VOLUME

(under model review in ecodesigner), this eco tool uses the AC ZONES tool:::: if the space being calculated
has an open ceiling with a sloping roof, the AC ZONE tool will not include this 'inclined" space/volume below the roof......so the 'building volume' could be incorrect.
(more than possible that i dont know how to use the zone tool in AC but this is one thing in ECO to look at)
