Computer Aided Design
Autocad computer aided draughting and Cymap CADlink computer aided design software are employed on our networked PC system. We also use EDSL Tas which enables us to carry out detailed thermal analysis, daylight calculations, etc. with data reading directly from Autocad drawings. We also use the Amtech suite of electrical design software for the complex cable and circuit protection calcualtions associated with LV and HV electrical design.
Our main investment in CAD software gives us greater analysis capability using TAS dynamic thermal simulation programmes. At the early stages of the project we can now fully investigate options such as stack driven natural ventilation, passive night cooling, etc. This is a key step in our aim to provide clients with accurate information on design options at the early decision making stages of a project.
Compliance with Part L2 Building Regulations can be demonstrated using the TAS dynamic modelling which is an approved alternative to the iSBEM calculations. We are however, accredited to carry out iSBEM calculations in the conventional manner if a TAS model is not produced.
