Through building energy simulation, we assess energy measures and assist design teams in improving overall energy efficiency and reducing building operating costs. Since our inception, we have successfully completed numerous projects in the multi-residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sectors.

Our building energy simulation and design services include:

There are many benefits to performing energy modeling on your building.

  • Provides you with the most cost effective design to meet your environmental goals
  • Quantifies the operating savings over the life of the building
  • Facilitates qualifying for many utility and government incentives and for LEED certification
  • Allows you to do the design right the first time instead of paying more to correct it later.

Energy modeling should be done early in the schematic design phase to ensure that efficiency goals are met with minimal complications or costs. A preliminary model is used at this stage to estimate savings. Caneta staff can provide feedback and recommend efficiency strategies to the design team for implementation into the design. We can also advise the team on any changes that occur during the design process. Once the design is completed, a final model is developed and a report appropriate for the application (code compliance, LEED, etc.) is prepared.

Several Caneta staff are on CaGBC’s Experienced Modellers list.
