Certification and compliance

The market-leading software for Level 3, 4 and 5 building certification, with the added advantage that the model can then be quickly and easily used for wider compliance such as MEES, TM52/59 overheating, BREEAM etc.

Productivity and confidence

Quickly create your geometry freehand or from plans, or import models from BIM tools such as Revit. Fast data input and QA-checking methods help to eliminate errors, so you have maximum audit success and confidence in your work.

Fast and easy to learn and to use

Just one day’s low-cost training is all existing Energy Assessors need to start using DesignBuilder, and one further day for DSM if you certify Level 5 buildings.

Optimise certificate ratings

The only software that allows you to easily create an SBEM and DSM variant of one model so you can quickly see which method gives the best results…a massive advantage for MEES assessments etc.

Value-added services

A full suite of software functionality from SBEM and DSM to overheating, daylighting and HVAC simulation and even CFD. The range of added-value services you can offer to clients by developing the base certification model is almost unlimited.

Supporting your personal journey

EPCs and certification are often the first step in a building performance analysis career. DesignBuilder provides all the functionality and support you’ll need to grow your modelling skills over time, enabling you to add value to your clients or employer.
“In my previous role as a technical consultant for the UK’s largest accreditation scheme, I had the privilege of using and regularly QA-checking models from all of the approved non-domestic EPC software tools. It is no coincidence that having left that role I have now chosen to use DesignBuilder for my own EPC, Part L and MEES work. I have always found DesignBuilder to be intuitive and easy to use, allowing the rapid and concise input any building from simple two zone shops to the large, complex and fiddly multi storey monsters. I am far more productive than if I had stuck with iSBEM, there is no doubt that DesignBuilder is cost effective and it only takes a few EPCs to pay for itself. DesignBuilder’s SBEM and DSM training was blissfully straightforward and very good value, once I started using the software I very quickly picked up the finer points with assistance from the excellent free online video tutorials. If you aren’t fully satisfied with your existing software, I would have no hesitation in recommending DesignBuilder."

Leverage your SBEM models to provide a more in-depth analysis using DSM, or take it a stage further to quantify energy, comfort and daylight performance outside the constraints of the NCM. Model the impact of various energy saving measures (such as wall/roof/floor insulation, replacement glazing, shading systems etc) and provide comfort reports such as TM52 and TM59 to meet the latest overheating codes and standards.
