Positive Energy’s Environmental Design services allow the architectural team to iteratively test assumptions, compare options, and make informed decisions when the design is still fluid. Our deliverables have been developed to inform and optimize a project’s architectural strategies starting at the beginning of conceptual design phase. Our suite of objective analyses powerfully impact massing, orientation and fenestration decisions, and thus the long term outcomes of the project. Optimizing design performance before exploring mechanical system options will result in better outcomes for health, comfort, cost, and efficiency.
Environmental design services include: Early concept energy performance, Envelope analysis, Daylight and glare analysis and design, Window and shading performance and optimization, Passive thermal comfort analysis, Embodied carbon, and Architectural scheme comparison.
