Building Physics – IES Modelling

Articles , , , , , 0 Comments

Building regulations include Part L
which set the Target Emissions Rate, a stringent benchmark for carbon dioxide
emissions and energy performance based on similar-sized buildings. The TER is then measured against the building’s actual performance, the Building Emissions Rate, which is not permitted to exceed the TER if it does, the building won’t meet
building regulations which can prove costly. IES modeling is a powerful tool
for predicting the BER. It allows different design options to be assessed
before construction has even started. It can include broad factors, like the
building’s orientation and add detailed elements of the design including control
systems, ventilation, insulation, heating, lighting – a host of factors. At Method
we routinely work with architects using IES early so that it can inform the
design pressures in the very beginning. We’re well versed in building physics and
the use of IES modeling which means that Method can show cost effective ways of
meeting these demanding regulations. Look out for other Have You Got a Minute videos in our series on building physics.
