GRAPHISOFT Launches EcoDesigner STAR Public Beta

BUDAPEST, Hungary, Feb. 6, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — �GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, has announced the launch of EcoDesigner STAR Public Beta, the first software that places standard-compliant energy analysis in the heart of the architects' familiar BIM work environment. EcoDesigner STAR enables architects to design the most energy-efficient buildings, without having to rely on input from engineers or specialist consultants.


Built on ArchiCAD 16's native Energy Evaluation infrastructure, EcoDesigner STAR enables architects to use ArchiCAD's building information model (BIM) directly as a building energy model (BEM). This ensures streamlined collaboration between designers and energy consultants. Furthermore, EcoDesigner STAR offers standard-compliant energy analyses on the BEM and produces a detailed building performance report, all within the familiar ArchiCAD design environment.

"Architects are taking more and more responsibility for the energy performance of their designs," said Laszlo Vertesi, Vice President of Development at GRAPHISOFT.  "EcoDesigner STAR offers energy evaluation based on standard compliant technology, right out of the box, throughout the entire design process," he added.
