Environmental and Climatic Modelling


In order to test and optimise the effectiveness of design solutions in meeting project criteria, AESG utilises dynamic simulation software. Use of these advanced modelling techniques at the very onset of the design process helps to enhance comfort parameters and assess both passive and active design measures. Utilising parametric modelling for design rationalisation, considering external comfort conditions within public realm spaces and building massing and orientation, provides quantifiable enhancements to the ultimate development performance.

Through the utilisation of a range of software, including Rhino (grasshopper; ladybug; honeybee etc.); IES-VE etc., AESG are able to help inform design decisions from the outset. Dynamic simulations can assess both external and internal performance, from an occupant comfort and energy efficiency perspective.

At AESG our experts in the UK work closely with project teams to optimise designs, deliver beyond client expectations by consistently demonstrating the operational cost savings and improved occupant comfort levels to clients through this process. AESG’s consistent approach to design team integration and use of dynamic software solutions allows for rapid response to model outputs and integration within the design at the optimum moment.
