IES component simulates Breathing Buildings’ hybrid ventilation system

Published:  05 April, 2017

IES and Breathing Buildings have developed a performance component for Breathing Buildings’ system of natural ventilation with heat recycling. It is available in the IES Virtual Environment (IESVE) software suite and uses IES Navigator technology to streamline and automate the integration of the component with the 3D building model. The NVHR Navigator includes guidance for Part L2 and provides automated CIBSE TM25 reportage.

The IESVE for Engineers suite enables performance and energy savings to be assessed in an open and transparent process so that users can be confident in the performance of their chosen systems.

Features of NVHR Navigator include in-model checks and model warnings to help users ensure the system is set up correctly. In-model colour coding shows that the model is correctly set up in preparation for simulation. Using the Navigator’s step-by-step feature on Breathing Buildings’ NVHR enables ease of use for first-time users.

John Gunn of Breathing Buildings explains, ‘Our NVHR system is an easily installed, high-performing natural solution to the problems involved in ventilating school buildings and offices. It creates significant energy and capital-expenditure savings through clever design, harnessing the heat-gain characteristics of these types of buildings. The new drag-and-drop capabilities in IESVE make passing regulations easier than it’s ever been.’
