Energy Modeling

LHB provides energy modeling services, from initial passive design strategies to final systems engineering, to assist our clients in economically meeting their energy and water use goals.

LHB offers clients the ability to set energy use targets in the early stages of a project and model energy use through all phases of project development, beginning with experimentation of massing and orientation in early schematic design where the greatest impact can be found, to refining performance through design development, such as adjusting elements like window type and building systems including HVAC and lighting. Modeling energy use early and often helps our clients’ projects meet aggressive energy use goals with more passive, low-cost strategies. Energy modeling enables us to move from designing with best practices and our gut feelings to designing in an iterative process based on reliable feedback.
