Autodesk University: Practical Energy Analysis with Revit

BHI’s presentation with Microdesk at Autodesk University Las Vegas 2019 is now available free online! You can access the video, presentation and handouts on the Autodesk University website.

Energy and daylighting analysis with Insight software provide designers with the ability to analyze the performance of their designs, leading to more-efficient buildings and sustainable practices. In this session, Microdesk explains how these tools are used and illustrate how one nonprofit firm, Build Health International, is using this technology to design energy-efficient health centers in Haiti, Peru, and West Africa. This session demonstrates how attendees can perform their own building-performance analysis using Revit software and Insight. BHI and Microdesk case studies where energy and daylighting analysis were used to design more-sustainable buildings and reduce operating costs for health-care centers in developing countries, where resources are limited and maximizing the environment is a necessity. Prior knowledge in Revit is helpful, but non-software users will benefit from the information shared in this presentation.
