Tool Tutorials: Dedicated Demos
Watch a demo of a tool or software available for reducing operational and embodied carbon impacts.
Bimmer- 3D Context Modeling Tool
With just an address in all major urban centres, Bimmer can create a 3D model of building structures in file formats that can be uploaded directly to leading design programs. The value of bimmer is that it can save architects and designers time and money when developing context models and the tool pulls from many data sources to gather the most accurate information.
Bimmer can capture from a single building up to a large city areas in just a few seconds, and can be used for a wide variety of design, engineering and planning applications.
SolarScore – BIPV modeling tool
SolarScore is a cloud-based software that looks beyond just rooftops by analyzing entire building envelopes and provides the business case for monetizing all surfaces with Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) technologies. The use of BIPV technologies allows the asset owner/developer to reduce the GHG emissions, and produce clean energy directly from the building’s skin, and utilize the vertical space that is otherwise unused.
SolarScore is used by engineers, architects and planners to inform project design from concept/initiation phase.
