Zone Heights

Postby mark@angliaepc » Wed Oct 03, 2018 2:38 pm

I know this is pretty basic but does Design Builder calculate the zone heights in accordance with the conventions or should I be overriding these?

The zone height will be calculated automatically as the average zone height based on the block geometry entered.
If this is not correct for the building being modelled according to the NCM Conventions then it can be over-ridden manually at zone level in the Activity Tab.

For more information see the DesignBuilder SBEM manual available at downloads area:
