Daylighting Analysis

We apply a process to our modeling, working from early design through final drawings to inform, support, and document designed performance. The earlier in the design process the modeling can begin, the more information is available to the design team. This can lead to better energy goals, reduced heating & cooling loads, and the best HVAC system selections.

This process continues through the design life-cycle of the project helping design teams understand the performance of their building in both real world and relative to baseline energy modeling performance. There are many factors that impact an energy model, and thus having an integrated design team leads to better outcomes & superior performance.


  • Climate Analysis & Energy Benchmarking
  • Conceptual simple box modeling and massing studies
  • Load reduction and HVAC System selection
  • Design Refinement and Optimization analysis
  • As-Designed Performance Modeling
  • Post-occupancy and calibrated modeling
  • Daylight & Shading Simulation
  • Life Cycle Cost Analysis
  • Tax Incentives / Rebate Analysis
  • LEED® Energy Modeling
  • Energy Code Performance Path modeling


We could tell you all day how we always find new ways to innovate, but we’d rather let our projects speak for themselves. Browse our project gallery to discover what we’ve been working on.
