Building design advisor

Share this Post:
Software environment that supports the integration of multiple building models and databases used by analysis and visualization tools, through a single, object-based representation of building components and systems. BDA (Building Design Advisor) acts as a data manager and process controller, allowing building designers to benefit from the capabilities of multiple analysis and visualization tools throughout the building design process. BDA is implemented as a Windows-based application. The current version includes links to a simplified Daylighting Computation Module (DCM), a simplified Electric lighting Computation Module (ECM), and the DOE-2.1E Building Energy Simulation software.
