IES to Showcase Disruptive Design Technology at Greenbuild 2011

Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES), a provider of integrated performance analysis software and consulting services for sustainable building design, will showcase its disruptive design technology at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Through various customer presentations at the booth, plus a pre-show training event and participation in the GreenTech@Greenbuild event and the USGBC’s LEED Automation presentation, IES will demonstrate how architects, engineers and many other building stakeholders can use modeling from the early stage of design to reduce building energy consumption and create sustainable, high performance buildings.

“The key to achieving a successful sustainable design is to understand how building simulation can change the conventional approach to building design by architects, engineers and even the building owner,” said Dr. Don McLean, founder and CEO of IES. “A “business as usual” approach is no longer justifiable and building analysis tools such as energy modeling can be a powerful tool to effect change. At Greenbuild, we look forward to demonstrating the importance of analysis in establishing more energy-efficient built environments.”

Pre-show training event

The next stop on the IES Training Road Show is Toronto! October 3 and 4, IES experts will be on-hand to teach simulation techniques and methods to enable more sustainable design practices. With two days of training, participants will receive first-hand knowledge on how to use IES’ precise, intelligent sustainability solutions to design more energy-efficient buildings and easily achieve LEED credits.

Customer Presentations

Joining executives from Halcrow, Doo Consulting, Perkowitz + Ruth Architects, Building Momentum Group and Ambient Energy, IES will share first-hand insight on integrated design in the following presentations located at its booth (#2325N):

Wednesday, October 5

o 1:15 p.m. – “Analyzing Double Skin Façades for Different Global Climate Regions” (Halcrow)

o 2:15 p.m. – “Early Conceptual Analysis of the Brickstainable Winning Design” (Doo Consulting, Perkowitz + Ruth Architects)

Thursday, October 6

o 1.00 p.m. – “LEED Energy & HVAC Modeling of Roosevelt University Vertical Campus” (Building Momentum Group)

o 1.45 p.m. – “Optimizing an Atrium – Daylight and Mixed Mode Ventilation on Colorado State University Engineering II Building” (Ambient Energy)


IES will participate in the GreenTech@Greenbuild event on Thursday, October 6 from 8:30 a.m. to noon in Salon B of the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. This new event is designed to increase awareness and adoption of emerging disruptive technologies that provide exceptional solutions for the building industry. IES was selected for the significant advances it contributes to green building with its early stage performance modeling technology.

LEED Automation Presentation

As a LEED Automation partner, IES will be featured in a presentation displayed throughout Greenbuild in the LEED Lounge. LEED Automation is a program developed by the USGBC to streamline and create increased capacity for the LEED building certification process by collaborating with leading technology companies that offer supporting functionality. LEED Automation is intended to enable automated access to data and capabilities of USGBC systems, including LEED Online, the certification platform for LEED.

The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo takes place October 4 to 7 in Toronto, Canada. For live updates from the show, follow @IESVE on Twitter.
