New Sefaira: Better Collaboration & Passive Design

May 17, 2017

The newest version of Sefaira Architecture delivers greater opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration, enhanced functionality for passive design and increased control and granularity in analysis.


This upgrade features three great benefits for designers who want to create high-performing buildings:

Greater Team Collaboration
Architects, specialists, and engineers can now collaborate seamlessly on the same project, ensuring performance goals are defined early, reducing the risk of missing performance targets, and strengthening the relationship between architect and engineer. This is made possible by Sefaira’s application of the U.S. Department of Energy’s respected EnergyPlus™ analysis engine in both Sefaira Architecture and Sefaira Systems.

Deeper Passive Design
Improved natural ventilation and thermal comfort, as well as a new free area assessment feature let you test key passive design strategies early in the design process. Quickly compare the performance impacts of fixed versus operable glazing, exterior shading or various window-to-wall ratios to maximize your building’s performance potential.

More Granular Analysis
This new release also unlocks room-level and zone-level analysis for all designers. This means you have even more detailed control over your analysis and greater confidence in your conclusions, all within a tool that supports the fast, iterative decision-making of early-stage design.
