Nemetschek Romania launched a software package dedicated to “Calculating the energy efficiency of buildings”. The software, which is fully translated into Romanian and complying with the current legislation, uses all the architectural data from the unique model of the building, avoiding the potential errors due to defining the building through a great number of numerical data, that are difficult to manage. The package supplies all the features necessary to obtaining an energy efficiency certificate, including instructive tutorials.
Obtaining an architectural model is very simple. After 10 to 12 hours of preparation, a user with no experience in assisted planning can, in approximately 3 hours, make a model of a P+4 apartment building, with two entrances, in compliance with the requirements of the Energy Efficiency of the Buildings Program.
The software automatically determines the physical characteristics of the architectural elements, allowing the Certificate for Energy Efficiency of the Building to be printed with just one mouse click.
The certificate is obtained according to MC001/2007 and elaborated by applying the law 327/2005, which includes energy consumption for heating, hot water and lighting.
Also, the software offers a quantity list of added materials (e.g. new insulation layer) for rehabilitation options.
Nemetschek offers live demonstrations to those interested in test running the software program.
