is a leader in the development and support of software for Building
Services designers. We aim to provide building services professionals
with the computer tools necessary to design and check building services
(air-conditioning, fire services, electrical etc.) for both new
and existing buildings.
One of the
main uses of these programs is to answer the "What If"
questions that good designers and operational staff ask. By using
a computer model to simulate a current building and/or its service
systems and then trying various alternatives in the model, detailed
and more accurate predictions can be made on the performance and
life cycle costs.
