Introducing project design energy reporting to the AIA 2030 DDx directly through PlanIT Impact.
Dominique Davison / December 18, 2018
As principal and owner of a small architecture firm, my team and I struggled to find the time and resources to be able to fulfill the AIA’s 2030 Commitment.
It wasn’t that we weren’t trying to. We were very supportive of the industry’s effort to raise awareness and share critical information around the impact of building performance per the 2030 Challenge. But with other looming deadlines and staff already overloaded, it was hard to justify the time needed to create an energy model for each phase and manually upload the data – sometimes taking all day per project.
That’s why we’ve developed PlanIT Impact’s latest feature, enabling energy answers and DDx reporting in five minutes or less. We’re finally able to easily fulfill our commitment.
This is great news for firms like mine (and now yours) who have signed onto the AIA 2030 Commitment. With PlanIT Impact, you can you conceive, measure and optimize how energy, water, stormwater and transportation affect your building performance. But, you also now have an easy-to-use tool for analyzing a design’s energy use that’s DDx compatible.
The March 31 deadline is fast approaching. I hope you’ll join us in our commitment to better outcomes for building performance – and to faster, easier DDx reporting.
