Commercial benefits include being able to assess designs quickly and easily for compliance, compare alternative energy-saving strategies and relate their effect back to the real buildings. Data input is simple, and much of the data is assigned and updated automatically. Designs can be tested at multiple stages without re-input. Results files suitable for inclusion in submissions to building-control authorities are produces, as well as realistic and animated 3D visualisations.
