DesignBuilder is a globally preferred building performance analysis software which is used to simulate and analyze the energy performance of the building.

DesignBuilder uses EnergyPlus, the state of the art simulation engine from the US Department of Energy as its background calcula­tion engine for whole energy modelling including HVAC, daylighting, airflow, cost, energy and carbon emissions. The software is useful for architects, engineers and design specialists for obtaining building green ratings (such as GRIHA, LEED).

The objective of the DesignBuilder certification course is to make the student comfortable with the software, equip her/him to interpret the results and appreciate its capabilities.
