Im a postgraduate student at the UCD and I am working in conjunction with the School of Architecture in conducting research into the idea of developing Building Performance Simulation Software for the analysis and evaluation of the energy performance of Historic Buildings.
Building Performance Simulation Software (BPSS) is currently used to assess energy performance of buildings at design stage, but the present tools do not embrace the most important aspects of historic/traditional buildings. This solution is aiming to allow historic/traditonal buildings to adhere to energy conservation demands while maintaining their artistic, historic and cultural value. I would greatly appreciate if you would click on the the link below and complete this short survey. All posts are welcome regarding your opinion on the topic.
Thanks a million.
