The Green Building Studio web-based service analysis process collects data from three sources:
- Your Revit® software model. All the building geometry comes from your model, including the number of rooms, the connections between rooms, and their relationship to the exterior, exposure, and aspect to the sun; and the shape and total area of built surfaces or openings. If you are using Revit MEP you can also specify space types, interior loads, constructions, and equipment.
- Your responses to a few basic questions. In order to explain the building’s use or context, you specify a building type and enter the project geographical location. You can also select a weather station for the project.
- Regionalized databases. Based on the above information, Green Building Studio extracts additional information about local weather conditions, construction, and materials. The service automatically adds any information you have not provided in order to adapt to your requirements as your design evolves.
