<p class="MsoNormal">DesignBuilder will be presenting a case study on 6<sup>th</sup> February to show how the power of multi-objective optimisation and parametric modelling were used as part of a simulation-driven design process. The benefits of optimisation
 have been understood and utilised within academia for decades, but the tools previously available to do that kind of work were relatively difficult and time-consuming to use so weren’t viable for industry practitioners. The introduction of optimisation tools
 into commercial software has changed that and we are delighted to see optimisation steadily making its way into progressive mainstream simulation practise.

<p class="MsoNormal">This free webinar will showcase a design optimisation project that was shortlisted for an award in the recent CIBSE Building Simulation Group’s annual competition. Arturo Ordˇ˝ez of Sol-Arq will explain how he used DesignBuilder's optimisation
 tools to minimise the energy consumption and construction cost whilst maximising the use of healthy materials in an eco-friendly house project in Spain. A simulation-driven design process was used, starting with optimization at the very beginning of the project,
 followed by more specific detailed and parametric analysis to inform the architectural design. All this helped Sol-Arq to reduce construction cost by 31% and CO2 emissions by 41%.<o:p></o:p></p>
