3 minutesread

For Conceptual Mass models:

    1. Building Manager– Select detailed information about the building such as the Building Use, Location and the yearly, weekly, and hourly usage.  Calculate Shading effects if required.

    2. Performance – Define/Create an Energy Code as target references. Set Thermal Properties of elements for conceptual models (Roof, Floor, Façade Performance Level, Glazing, and Wall). Set glazing percentage for a Mass Model.  View compliance status, Building Performance and Façade Performance.

    3. Façades – Set glazing specifications in Conceptual Mass models at a building, Façade, and/or Surface level. Choose Facades/Surfaces for analysis (Results will display for those selections only).

Managers include the Performance Manager, Building Manager and  Facade Manager

For Detailed models, the Performance Manager consists of the Energy Codes are and Compliance checking of thermal performance of Revit elements.

Th Building Manager for Detailed models, is the last stage of on-boarding your model where project settings may be defined, shading effects turned on/off and results calculated. Here you may define occupancy hours/dates as well as location and terrain types.

There is no Facade Manager as such for Detailed models but you may make selections using the Facade Navigator, view details of the glazing elements and change the glass types in the model using the Glass Database.

Note: The Energy Units in Revit may sometimes be different if model unit settings have been changed in the application from imperial or metric.  If there are differences in the units seen in Revit as compared to the units used in the application, these can be adjusted in Revit by going to the ‘Manage‘ tab – ‘Project Units’. Choose ‘Energy Units’ instead of ‘Common Units’ and set this to the appropriate value (imperial or metric) if required so that the units are consistent in Revit and Guardian Glass for BIM.
