Advantages of simulations

Simulations are a tool for the overall optimization of buildings, areas or infrastructure structures. The building is viewed holistically across all trades. All system components interact with each other and the entire life cycle is taken into account. This allows questions to be answered early on in the planning phase and uncertainties to be eliminated. This creates a wide range of added value for the environment, the client, the construction project, the investor and the user of the building.

Our success stories

Overall, success stories related to simulation provide concrete examples of how these technologies can help to plan and design better and more efficient buildings or sites, and motivate decision-makers to use these tools in their own projects.

Efficient use of process waste heat: optimization of the new lake water plant in Ipsach for a sustainable drinking water supply
The new lake water plant in Ipsach will produce drinking water for 70,000 people in the Biel/Nidau region in the canton of Bern. EPRO ENGINEERING carried out a comprehensive simulation study in IDA ICE (useful energy) from EQUA and Polysun (system simulation) from Velasolaris to ensure that the waste heat from the process can be optimally utilized.
Sustainable education center: Innovative technologies and planning strategies for energy-efficient school buildings in Luxembourg
The ambitious goal for the new technical high school for health professions in Luxembourg was for the building to pay back the energy used for its construction and demolition during its lifetime. Therefore, not only an energy-efficient building envelope was required, but also an energy-optimized system for ventilating and heating the administration and training rooms.
Innovative technology for Olma Hall 1: Efficient air conditioning and fire protection concept for St. Gallen's leading exhibition and event hall
With the new Olma Hall 1, the largest column-free hall in Eastern Switzerland, St. Gallen and the entire region will become the number one exhibition, event and congress center. AFC AG supported the development of the integral overall building climate concept and the project-related fire protection and smoke extraction concept by means of simulations and conceptual know-how.
Simulation study on the optimization of summer thermal insulation and energy requirements in SBB buildings
The SPF Institute for Solar Technology was commissioned by the HVAC engineering firm Tri Air AG on behalf of SBB AG Immobilien Bewirtschaftung to conduct a simulation study to examine the need for active cooling and the total energy requirement with different variants.
