Thermal Modelling & Software

 

Understanding how design decisions influence energy consumption, carbon emissions and thermal comfort utilising industry recogonised software.

 

To fully understand the thermal performance of a building and its environmental impact, it’s essential that a detailed dynamic computer generated thermal model is undertaken. MEPS advises Clients, Architects, and Design Teams with regard to how design decisions influence energy consumption, carbon emissions, thermal comfort, daylight, overheating studies and other building performance metrics.

 

Steady-State and Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM)

 

Our team of engineers can accurately simulate the thermal performance of a building taking due account of design, climate, and use utilising current and future CIBSE weather files. Building façades can be optimised and plant accurately sized to create efficient and comfortable buildings to live and work in.

 

Planning applications often require clients to demonstrate how the proposed building addresses their sustainability and low carbon agenda and meets Building Regulations, and this can be achieved through building thermal modelling.

 

Revit & BIM

 

Building Information Management allows us to offer our clients services with reduced waste and increased efficiency by unlocking the benefit of our software and technical investment.

Working together using a single model delivers greater collaboration between shareholders and enhanced trust through the sharing of data.

From inception to operation and construction, our teams employ BIM to provide our clients with predictability, scenario testing and sustainable construction while providing on site safety, construction management and asset management as an integrated process.

 

Dynamic Thermal and Simulation Modelling using TAS & or IES allows us to investigate:

 

  • Building geometry, including layouts
  • Building fabric performance
  • Façade design
  • Thermal comfort
  • Summer Overheating and solar shading
  • Natural ventilation, airflow and temperature
  • HVAC services installations – sizing and operation strategies
  • Artificial and daylight lighting design
  • Passive design strategies
  • Renewable energy systems
  • Energy consumption and carbon emissions
  • Occupancy profiles and building use
  • Building Regulation and Energy Compliance (Part L, EPC, BREEAM etc)
