Learn to Use DesignBuilder from Early-Stage through to LEED Modeling at 2017 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference


DesignBuilder / ASHRAE

Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel & Conference Center, 3405 Lenox Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30326

September 25 - 26, 2017

This training will teach you how to use DesignBuilder to improve productivity, enabling you to model and analyse building performance using EnergyPlus and Radiance much more quickly and efficiently. The workshop will cover the key elements of modeling from early through to detailed project stages and LEED certification. No prior learning or knowledge of DesignBuilder is required for Day 1, which will teach you how to quickly and easily create a model for early-stage analysis then test different early- stage options, develop the model as the design evolves, run heating and cooling load calculations, analyse different solar shading options and run a variety of simulations to quantify energy and comfort performance.

Day 2 will introduce detailed HVAC modelling and show you how to quickly and easily generate ASHRAE 90.1 baseline models, update them as required, generate LEED v3 and v4 daylighting
credits and the outputs required for LEED submissions, and will also introduce our new online LEED reporting tools.

Day 2 requires attendance on Day 1 or prior experience using DesignBuilder.

Both workshops will use our latest software, due to be released this Fall, which includes significant new ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G automation, DAYSIM for LEED v4 daylighting credits, and a new online LEED reporting and submission tool. Free 30-day licences will be provided, so why not come along and learn how to use these new tools and experience for yourself why so many of our customers say they would recommend DesignBuilder training to a friend or colleague.

Workshop Trainers: David Cocking and James V Dirkes
