"Sustainable architecture" is the practice of designing, constructing and maintaining buildings in a way that their environmental impact is minimized. One of the most important aspects of sustainable design is energy efficiency. The truth of sustainable design is that about 80% of the design decisions that influence a building's energy performance are made by the architect in the early design phase.
Using BIM-integrated Sustainable Design in ArchiCAD, architects can easily analyze their designs for energy efficiency at an early stage. By providing invaluable feedback on the building's energy performance, architects can make better decisions on how to adhere to codes and regulations while satisfying the interests of clients and building owners/operators.
