Sustainable Design

The built-in energy evaluation functionality of ArchiCAD uses StruSoft’s VIPcore calculation engines. ArchiCAD 17 enables architects to perform improved energy evaluation based on standard-compliant technology, supporting multiple thermal blocks. As a result, designers can perform dynamic and accurate energy calculations, starting at the early design stages. The calculation input data and the evaluation results can be shared in various formats including PDF, XLS and IFC.
