IDL & Autodesk Ecotect

Autodesk has recently added Ecotect to their product line which is a valuable sustainable analysis tool. Employed early in the design phase, Ecotect can inform the efficiency and performative decisions of the building design. The Integrated Design Lab can help with design decisions that affect the buildings energy consumption and its impact on the environment. Using Ecotect as a tool for whole building analysis, we can present graphical demonstrations of the the complex relationships within the building design.

Video Simulation

We can demonstrate a wide array of building performance criteria using video simulations.
