Home > Sustainable Design With Autodesk Revit And Sans204
The Sustainable design with Revit and SANS204 workshop will explore ways of integrating sustainable design methods into your current workflow. Using conceptual design tools in Revit and Vasari to create massing studies, do multiple design options, site layouts, setup coordinates and location and calculate conceptual energy analysis within Revit.
The workshop will also include using Green Building Studio a web-based energy analysis application that help architects and designers perform whole building analysis, optimize energy efficiency and work toward carbon neutrality earlier in the design process.
