What Are Our Participants Saying
"It feels like I've developed a new super power in analysing the building energy performance and this was possible because of the brilliant delivery of the entire course by seasoned experts with seamless workflow, case study examples and immaculate support in each and every step of design optimization. It made me realise that as an Architect you can make so much impact by analysing passive design measures in developing energy efficiency solution for the building, if you can adopt the workflow of optimization from early design stage in your practice"
"As a participant of the program "Early Design Optimization using OpenStudio" I found it to be a compilation of systematized, well-curated course content. It covered basic concepts and steps to optimize design in the early design stage with a lot of handholding with the software- from installation to getting the basics clear and additional supporting instructional videos to dedicated topics. assignments. As an addition, the course also gave us an opportunity to connect with like-minded participants."
