Sustainability Spotlight: Building Performance Analysis at Entuitive 

Updated: May 1

What Is Building Performance Analysis?  


Building performance analysis, which encompasses energy modelling and building simulation, evaluates a building's energy use considering factors such as climate, construction materials, envelope performance, and the building's mechanical and electrical systems.


Integrating these variables with the architectural design enables us to generate a comprehensive prediction of a building's operational energy consumption and carbon footprint, applicable to both new constructions and existing structures.

Empowering Our Clients 

Leveraging building performance analysis at Entuitive empowers our clients to:

  • Realize their architectural visions while achieving energy efficiency and sustainability objectives.

  • Adhere to local building codes, including the BC Step Code, Toronto Green Standard, and Calgary’s Sustainable Buildings Policy.

  • Prepare for third-party certifications, including LEED, Built Green, CAGBC Zero Carbon Building Standard, among others.

  • Maintain budget fidelity through value engineering, identifying the most cost-effective sustainability strategies for their projects.
