DesignBuilder Half-day Workshop

Book a CPD session

Stroma and DesignBuilder are pleased to announce a low-cost half-day CPD workshop that will show you how to make your SBEM modelling more efficient and enjoyable.


Understand how to simplify the process of building simulation

QA Checking

Streamlined QA checking

Build Models

Build models to compare energy, carbon & lighting performance

Design Builder

DesignBuilder is a state-of-the-art SBEM and DSM tool which simplifies the process of building simulation, allowing assessors to rapidly build models and compare energy, carbon, lighting and comfort performance. DesignBuilder users report that they can slash their average modelling time by at least half compared to free software tools like iSBEM. The bigger and more complex the building, the greater the time-saving. QA-checking of the energy model is also much easier, reducing the risk of mistakes leading to audit failure.

Although the payback time on a DesignBuilder software licence is generally very short due to the modelling efficiency savings, it is appreciated that the cost of commercial software can be a hurdle to NDEAs facing increasingly tight margins. To overcome that barrier, DesignBuilder has a flexible pay-as-you-go system so you don’t have to commit to a full licence until the time is right for you. Higher volume users can take advantage of DesignBuilder’s competitively priced full licences and assessor packages.

Who should attend?

This Workshop is for Assessors with little or no prior experience of DesignBuilder. We will introduce you to the most important aspects of modelling in DesignBuilder so you experience for yourself how much time you could save on each model.

Assessors should bring their own laptop if they want to follow the trainer, or if preferred could simply watch and listen to get a sense of the potential benefits.

“I was impressed with the intuitiveness and calm manner in which the class was conducted. Thanks to you, the class was very interesting, and I was able to take away and retain quite a lot.”

Mark Millitello, Energy Officer, Wakefield Council
