Sustainability

01

Digital Twin

A digital twin of your project provides insights into the impact of design choices, setting values and the ROI of sustainable improvements.

02

Building Information Monitoring

A coordinated BIM protocol is a precondition for a sustainable approach and has many advantages throughout the entire lifecycle of the building site.

03

Integrated Study Approach

As one stop study partner Arcade enquires an integrated approach across different disciplines throughout all phases.

04

Sustainablility guidelines

Certificates as official proof for sustainable projects.

DIGITAL TWIN Building physics and simulations

How do you design a building without sacrificing on energy, daylight and thermal comfort?

Arcade has many years of experience in dynamic building modeling. These simulation models are used as a tool for improving energy use and for increasing the health and wellbeing of building occupants.

  1. Building techniques: We think along with you to optimize your building techniques by evaluating different concepts based on total energy use and TCO.
  2. Thermal comfort: What is the impact of direct sunlight on your building’s summer comfort? Can thermal comfort be guaranteed by passive measures?
  3. Indoor air quality: Do you want to improve well-being and working efficiency of your employeers by implementing a demand-driven and optimised ventilisation?
  4. Daylighting: How could we improve your visual comfort by finding balance between energy and daylight?

SUSTAINABILITY GUIDELINES

Sustainability guidelines such as BREEAM and WELL are a good practice for developing sustainable projects.

Arcade has certified BREEAM Assessors and WELL APs (Accredited Professional) who will define and secure sustainable practices in different domains of your project. On top of that, our experts are experienced to perform the necessary reports to confirm compliance.

If requested, your project can be certified with one of the following labels: BREEAM, WELL and GRO. GRO is the official sustainability indicator from the Flemish government.
