HARUG Members, we missed you! But boy do we have a treat for you this coming meeting.

Please join us in welcoming a close friend and colleague of mine, Joseph Fong, RA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, Associate at Walter P. Moore's Diagnostic Group. Joe is a much sought after speaker traveling all over the continent giving talks about performance modeling for building envelope design.

The title is a bit generic however, here's the detailed agenda packed full of great topics, information and graphics.

Title - Building Performance Modeling Tools

Description - To understand how different modeling tools enhance the value of building performance (i.e. energy usage, daylighting, thermal comfort, and condensation, etc.) for the building envelope design and construction.

Course Objectives –

Discuss the basics of building science for modeling tools

Understand how Energy Codes influence the performance based design

Identify which performance modeling tools are available for building envelope applications

Recognize the appropriate performance modeling tools in different design stages

See you all there!

The Houston Area Revit User Group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at different locations providing for a fresh new environment for idea sharing. We hope to see you at an upcoming meeting soon!

    Kathy, thanks for your comment. It's exactly what I wanted to present to our BIM users. If anyone has any questions about the building performance analysis, please feel free to contact me.

    Regarding the slideshow, I am afraid I am not allowed to share publicly for there were some project related images which belong to my company...

    Anyway, great to meet you all!

    Great start for me to think more into analysis, not just modeling.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
