Sefaira integrates 2030 Challenge benchmarks into its real time energy analysis platform
November 2013 | 2030 Challenge
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Sefaira, the leader in software for high performance building design, to raise awareness of the 2030 Challenge and help architects achieve the Challenge targets.
As of this month, 2030 Challenge benchmarks are integrated directly into Sefaira’s newest product, Sefaira for SketchUp, helping architects to put their designs on track and achieve these goals.
Sefaira automatically calculates 2030 Challenge benchmarks from only two inputs (building use and location), then tracks a design’s projected energy consumption against this benchmark in real time.
This intuitive analysis and tracking makes it easy for 2030 Challenge adopters to measure their progress toward 2030 Challenge goals on every project. By integrating 2030 Challenge benchmarks directly into its real time energy analysis software, Sefaira aims to expand the reach of these targets and make it easier for architects to achieve them.
Architecture 2030 CEO and Founder Ed Mazria said, “One of the requirements we identified as key to meeting the 2030 Challenge were design tools to help architects and engineers make informed decisions on energy use during the critical early phases of design. Sefaira is a product that promises to give professionals the energy analysis information they need, and it is an exciting example of the progress we’ve made towards the transformation of the built environment.”
