#5 Automatic compliance and energy rating system
This project transformed the current manual process of energy compliance checks for new residential homes by integrating existing rapid digital building software with Australia’s building regulation and performance assessment requirements.
This project developed a comprehensive workflow to take Utecture’s existing home design and costing engine and propose subsequent compliance and NatHERS energy rating assessment procedures utilising CSIRO’s Accurate engine.
The developed road map has paved the way for designers, builders, and clients to understand the energy performance and compliance of a home whilst also having an estimate of the capital and ongoing costs in near real time during design
