Oliver Riley, Technical Director of Energy Performance and Technology at URS needed to analyze one of Oxford University’s buildings at Linacre College. In this video Oliver describes how URS, a 54,000+ firm with offices in nearly 50 counties, used Autodesk technology to capture the building geometry with photogrammetry and conduct various energy and wind analyses in Autodesk’s Project Vasari. This workflow is better known as Autodesk’s Rapid Energy Modeling (REM). It’s pretty cool!
Course material from an Autodesk University (AU) class on Autodesk’s Rapid Energy Modeling can be access using a free membership to Autodesk University’s site. Also, if your a Autodesk Revit user you can do this same workflow in it as well using Autodesk Recap for photogrammetry, Energy Analysis for Revit which is powered by Autodesk Green Building Studio, and Autodesk Flow Design.
