Energy Performance & Optimization


Whole Building Energy Modeling

Energy performance & optimization modeling allows owners and facility managers to “test drive” their major investments in building construction before gaps in the exterior envelope design and construction leave their buildings interior at the mercy of the elements. At Zero/Six, we generate virtual models that expose the oversights of its envelope design and materials, building orientation, HVAC systems, equipment loads and lighting systems that impact energy performance, occupancy comfort and construction costs, resulting in a return on investment (ROI) and peace of mind unobtainable prior to the advent of the technological ally of Zero/Six energy performance & optimization modeling. Our services encompass the full spectrum of whole building modeling to maximize energy conservation so that facility management can make more informed decisions and generate savings over the life cycle of the building.

Our extensive experience with energy performance & optimization, utilizing advanced simulation tools, such as eQUEST, Trace 700 and EnergyPlus have supported energy analysis of more than 30,000,0000-square-feet for both retrofit and new construction projects.

To generate further energy savings by enhancing whole building energy performance & optimization, learn more about our Building Envelope Thermal & Moisture Analysis and Life-Cycle Cost Analysis services.
