DesignBuilder combines the speed of building modeling and ease of use of state-of-the-art dynamic simulation features. DesignBuilder is the first user-friendly comprehensive interface for the EnergyPlus computational core that provides dynamic simulation calculations.

DEKPROJEKT provides sales, training and consultancy for Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. For more information please visit

Most common uses:

  • complex dynamic building simulations,
  • building certification (eg LEED, BREEAM, Green Star),
  • thermal comfort assessment,
  • comprehensive optimization (allows for a combination of economic, energy, environmental and thermal comfort)
  • calculation of daylight,
  • environmental assessment,
  • CFD analysis of indoor and outdoor space.
Key properties:
  • possible to calculate accurate data describing the behavior of the building and the indoor environment,
  • allows you to get visualizations and videos at any stage of the project,
  • streamlining the process of designing and evaluating variants (important data for decision making is available when you need it),
  • allows you to perform simulations on both small and large projects (from separate rooms through family houses to large administrative centers),
  • allows for the design of environmentally friendly buildings,
  • can be used to evaluate some criteria for building certification purposes according to BREEAM, LEED.
