In today’s environment, sustainability is an imperative for all building projects. ARCHICAD’s commitment to energy conservation means you’ll get accurate feedback about your building design’s energy consumption every step of the way.
The built-in Energy Evaluation functionality of ARCHICAD allows architects to perform reliable dynamic energy evaluation with standard-compliant technology without any additional training. The results are easy to read and understand and help make informed design decisions.
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.
Available to those working with the MEP modeler add-on to discover potential issues now, avoiding construction problems later.
Using the separately-purchased MEP Modeler add-on, collision detection now works with all MEP-type elements and all imported IFC MEP model elements regardless of which MEP application exported the IFC model. Collision detection produces results considerably faster using multicore CPU basis to avoid slowdowns of your computer.
Thanks to its OPEN BIM workflow, ARCHICAD works seamlessly with other solutions like Tekla BIMsight and Solibri Model Checker. With a single mouse click, architects can analyze the building information model and reveal potential flaws and weaknesses in the design, highlight the clashing components, and check to ensure that the model complies with BIM requirements and best practices.
