Building Physics

Through the use of advanced modelling and simulation techniques, our experts push for an efficient, optimised and precisely engineered design proposal.

AESG utilises dynamic simulation methods to test and optimise the effectiveness of design solutions in meeting project criteria. With the use of advanced simulation techniques, solutions can be optimised and precision engineered to maximise the value of design proposals. Modelling and simulation can be conducted at early stages in the design process to assess passive design measures and to enhance comfort parameters. Parametric modelling can also be utilised for design rationalisation, considering architectural and materiality aspects as well as building systems, providing a quantifiable cost saving for the design measure over the operational life-time of the project.

Through the utilisation of a range of software, including Rhino, Revit and IES, AESG are able to help inform the design from concept through design development to completion. Dynamic simulation can assess both external and internal performance, from an occupant comfort and energy efficiency perspective.

AESG’s in-house specialists work closely with project teams to optimise designs, consistently demonstrating substantial capital and operational cost savings to Clients through this process. By offering a full suite of modelling and simulation services in-house, excellent communication within project teams is ensured, allowing for instantaneous response to model outputs and integration within the design at the optimum moment.
