Designing Energy Efficient Homes Using Building Information Modeling

Today, we seek buildings that are not only beautiful and functional, but also energy efficient. A sustainable, energy efficient home conserves resources, lightens your impact on the earth and saves you money.

Energy efficiency involves many aspects of your home—from building envelope to lighting systems—and can be overwhelming when you are designing a home. At Shelter Studio, we use the most recent tools to explore various design and structural characteristics—before it is built.

Using Revit®, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) program, we can digitally model the different elements of a building such as shape, structure, materials and heating and cooling systems in real time. This allows us to quickly understand how specific changes in design or construction models will impact your energy usage and your bottom line, helping you make informed decisions about your project.
