Building Performance Simulation

Building Performance Simulation

Predicting building performance to inform smart building decisions.

Kirksey uses advanced software to predict building performance and help you make smart building decisions. We use energy and daylight models to study daylighting, shading, lighting technologies, building envelope systems, and HVAC systems. This allows us to optimize a building’s performance within your budget and return on investment schedule – before it’s too late to make critical decisions.

Building Energy Simulation
Energy modeling of new construction for code and green building standard compliance, as well as modeling to calibrate against existing building performance.

Daylight Simulation
Simulation to determine daylight levels and glare.

Shading and Solar Control Studies
Simulation to understand insolation on building surfaces and to design effective shading devices.

Ventilation and Wind Assessments (CFD)
Analysis to understand ventilation effectiveness in interior and exterior spaces.
