Visually explore a range of design options
to assess their impacts on building performance.
Building PathFinder leverages whole building energy modelling in an intuitive interface to educate designers, developers, planners and others on the implications of building design on energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and other metrics. Building PathFinder includes the exploration of a multi-unit residential building, a medium single-family dwelling and a row house. The focus is on metrics relating to the City of Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Building Plan and the BC Energy Step Code.
