Integrating Building Energy Modeling with Microsol Resources and EDSL

Microsol Resources Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of UK-based Environmental Design Solutions Limited (EDSL) to its growing association of technology partners.

EDSL, the company behind the accredited software Tas, provides a complete solution for the dynamic simulation and thermal analysis of buildings. Tas helps design and engineering firms create building models for simulation, perform climate-based daylight modeling analysis, and calculate energy consumption, CO2, and cost information. Tas also allows users to visualize building simulation data in 2D and 3D with presentation-quality graphics.

“We are delighted to partner with EDSL to offer Tas, allowing designers, engineers, and architects to predict building energy use while designing new buildings and retrofits”, said Emilio Krausz, President of Microsol Resources. “Tas is already a leading building modeling and simulation tool in the UK, and it is our goal to elevate it to the same position in the US market. There is an absolute need for a turnkey solution for building performance software, and EDSL provides it.”

“Joining forces with Microsol Resources gives us the opportunity to share our technology and Tas with a wider audience and to successfully implement growth in a new territory,” said Dr. Alan Jones, Managing Director of EDSL. “Our goal is to deliver a building energy modeling tool that assists design and engineering firms in furthering their commitment to sustainable, environmentally-friendly design, and to meet owners’ sustainability goals for their facilities including LEED and other certifications.”

This latest partnership reinforces Microsol Resources’ dedication to matching business needs with products and support—one of the many reasons that the company has received numerous recent accolades and exceptional rankings in customer satisfaction.

To start this new partnership, Microsol Resources is hosting an online event on February 13, 2020, at 1 pm EST. The event is called “Discover How to Integrate Building Energy Modeling with Tas”. To learn more, register for this event https://microsolresources.com/events/.

Discover How to Go Green Using Bluebeam Revu

Every construction project has a specific set of documents that are vital for the overall success of the project, including drawing, contracts, specifications and other important information. To create a full set of architectural drawings, companies use an incredible amount of paper. In order to be able to communicate with the team, these drawings must be distributed to each relevant team member. If a project manager or a general contractor decides to create a RFI, new copies of the drawings have to be printed and redistribute to the team to notify any change. If the copies aren’t delivered in time or if someone involved is left out, it can lead to serious delays in construction, and significant cost overruns.

As noted by the Construction Industry Institute, construction firms spend an estimated $15 billion a year performing rework on projects due to inaccuracies in the initial drawings, failure to distribute new versions of drawings to subcontractors, and discrepancies between builders and architects.

Here is when Bluebeam comes to revolutionize the way PDF documents are used and shared. With Bluebeam Revu, any person involved in the project can easily and intuitively upload architectural drawings into a single master set, that is automatically organized, named and numbered. Bluebeam Revu allows architects, engineers and construction professionals adapt digital workflows that span the entire project lifecycle, from site surveys and field reports to design review and punch.

No matter where you are, you can edit and markup PDFs on the go, and collaborate in real time by using Revu on a Windows tablet or iPad. You can also mark documents and send out RFIs easily and effectively without having to worry about having the information lost.

Bluebeam editing tools let you edit text, apply headers and footers, assemble files, and add, delete or rotate pages while PDF markup tools let you redline 2D and 3D PDFs with customizable markups tools such as text, notes, highlighter, lines, clouds, callouts, stamps and more. The measurement tools let you take measurements, count from PDFs, and perform area cutouts electronically, this not only saves you time, but saves money on the overall project.  You can also add formulas to the built-in worksheet using the Formula Editor to calculate costs in Revu.

If you’re ready to purchase your Bluebeam Revu licenses, please make sure to visit our Online Store.

To learn more about how Bluebeam is allowing architects, engineers and construction professionals to adapt digital workflows that span the entire project life-cycle, from site surveys and field reports to design review and punch, you can view our webinar on Discover How to Go Green Using Bluebeam Revu.
