Considering all passive performance parameters of the building, FenestraPro solutions allow for seamless management of thermal performance, solar heat gain and daylight, taking into account aesthethic and façade design
FenestraPro solutions bring extensive savings and design process optimization by eliminating late stage redesign, façade components management and powerful analytics and reporting, accessible for all members of the design team
FenestraPro solutions allow for compliance regulations integration in the model and the workflow process as well as active management of energy compliance parameters in both overall building and façade elements
Target gives guidance on the façade performance based on the conceptual massing, before applying these design decisions directly to the mass model.
Whether the design brief is for a fully glazed building or a solid industrial unit, FenestraPro Target will quickly inform the designer how to realize their aesthetic design and apply it directly to the Conceptual Model with Revit.
Linc for FenestraPro is the latest BIM innovation from the FenestraPro team, which allows for detailed management of the façade glazing.
Linc provides designers with live access to manufacturers data and information on the cloud, which they can incorporate directly into their Revit models.
Designers can rely on more than 300 and counting glazing types.
FenestraPro is the ultimate tool when disigning with environemental performance considerations in Autodesk Revit.
FenestraPro allows architects to design energy-efficient building facades and understand the implications of their design decisions on the passive considerations and energy performance of the building envelope.
FenestraPro considers the performance characteristics of the façade…
…where the biggest impact can be made on the passive considerations of energy performance of the building, specifically the Thermal Performance & Heat Loss, Solar Heat Gain and Natural Daylighting considerations, which can so often work against each other.
By using FenestraPro from early stages and through the whole design process, the designer can understand how to best optimize the façade, understand the implications of their design decisions and guide on the optimal performance to meet the design intent.
Understand overall and elemental thermal performance to meet prescriptive codes and guidance on glass to wall ratio.
Solar Heat Gain
Control the amount and type of glass to maximize heat gain & minimize overheating to reduce heating & cooling loads.
Maximize natural daylight considering daylight factors and understanding the impact of the amount and type of glass.
“FenestraPro has been transformational for us, empowering our architects to quickly design and deliver beautiful, functional buildings that also achieve the energy performance requirements that have become part of our ethos at Page. These kind of benefits ultimately make a difference to us in impacting the way that people work and live.”
“There are so many options and ways that any design can go, and so many explorations that are happening on any project during the design phase. Being able to distil these options down to a set of criteria that allow you to meet the aesthetic demands and needs, while also optimising them for energy consumption is impossible without tools that pair those things together. There are not many, if any, tools that do that, besides FenestraPro.”
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture
“We constantly seek to integrate innovative and cutting-edge tools… As an Add-in for Revit, FenestraPro Premium offers flexibility and quickness to test different forms, and provides detailed information about thermal, solar and daylight performance that helps us make informed decisions about building orientation, solar shading, and amount, distribution and type of glazing. Getting guidance on these decisions early in the design process offers the ability to have a greater positive impact on the design, and avoid cost implications of design changes later on.”
“FenestraPro Premium is a hugely valuable tool that enabled us to make decisions early, quickly, and in a far more quantifiable way. By giving us insight into issues around the façade treatment, FenestraPro informed our design process very dynamically. And the ability to automatically optimise decisions like glazing percentage or shading depth is extremely useful.”
