Graphisoft EcoDesigner - 'Green' Becomes Organic Part of the Architectural Design Workflow



BUDAPEST, Hungary, April 28 -- Graphisoft, the global leader in Virtual Building(TM) solutions, today announced Graphisoft EcoDesigner(TM), a building energy evaluation tool for ArchiCAD 12.

Graphisoft EcoDesigner is an integrated, easy-to-use energy evaluation tool for architects. EcoDesigner enables architects to control the energy consumption of their buildings, and sets new standards in sustainable design, making ArchiCAD the leading software solution for contemporary architectural demands. With EcoDesigner, architects will have easy access to much needed energy information concerning their project in the early design phase, as opposed to relying on outside professionals to analyze the buildings when the design is well advanced and decisions are irreversible.

"The majority of design decisions influencing a building's energy performance are made by the architect in the early design phase," said Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, Vice President of Graphisoft Product Management. "At later design phases, engineers can only make adjustments by applying special building materials and mechanical systems. Graphisoft EcoDesigner provides architects with a unique easy-to-use tool in their native design environment to make energy-conscious decisions even during the early phase of the design."

The Graphisoft EcoDesigner will start shipping by the end of May. If you are interested in a product demonstration, please visit the Graphisoft Booth #1551 at the 2009 AIA Convention.
