IES LEED Calculation Software Videos

Channel Icon

Overview of VE-Ware, shows you how to access it, pull reports and how to use in everyday scenarios. You might also want to check out our videos on the SketchUp and Revit plug-in's coming soon...







See all of the IES videos. I've been playing with the IES software for the past week and it's pretty amazing. After getting some one on one guidance from one of their techs today, I'm really impressed with what they can do. Today I was playing with FluxDL and the VE Toolkit for LEED. The VE Toolkit makes it really easy to get early design LEED credit validation. It's not that expensive either. Contact me if you'd like information, pricing or to see a live demo.

VE-Toolkit for LEED

Automated indicative LEED rating system credit assessment that covers daylighting, comfort, water and renewables across LEED NC V2.2/V3, LEED SchoolsV1/V3 and LEED Core and Shell V2/V3.

Daylighting
Covers LEED Credit EQ8.1. Simple 25fc (300 lux) threshold (75%spaces) or Advanced 25fc inc. light penetration (75% spaces) options available. Ability to define what spaces are included in the analysis. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, previous run comparison, visual floor-by-floor movie and tabular results to enable easy identification of marginal fail rooms.

Comfort
Covers LEED Credit EQ7.1. ASHRAE 55 – 2004 compliant assessment method – occupied area must meet predicted mean vote (PMV) +0.5 to -0.5. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, previous run comparison, fly round movie and room by room table to enable easy identification of rooms that fail.

Water
Covers LEED Credits WE2, 3.1, 3.2 (V2.2) and WE Pre 1, 2, 3 (2009). EPA – 1992 data; water use reduction calculation and innovative waste water technology (option 1). Editable appliance data. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, water stress significance, and reduction achieved with breakdown.

Renewables
Covers LEED Credits EA2 & 6. Carbon reduction based on simulation data and user selected low/zero-carbon technology. Output includes indicative pass/fail results, CO2 breakdown by end-use and proposed contribution of technology to emissions reduction. Although not part of EA2 credit, low carbon technologies are included, as in some scenarios they may be more effective at reducing CO2 emissions.
