Deliver sustainable, high-performance buildings

OpenBuildings Designer Building Design & Energy Analysis Software

Design sustainable, high-performance buildings with ease using OpenBuildings Designer, the multidiscipline Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Collaborate with architects and engineers from different disciplines to streamline the design, modeling, analysis, management, and construction of buildings of any size, form, and complexity. With a federated data approach, you and your team can work on any size models simultaneously, regardless of location.

Advance Your Design with BIM

Take advantage of BIM advancements to deliver buildings faster and with greater confidence. OpenBuildings Designer integrates information for multiple disciplines, companies, and project phases, allowing you to improve your project delivery and manage your design information throughout the project lifecycle. With BIM analysis, you get a better understanding of the data-rich digital representation of your building to improve the odds of delivering a building on time and on budget.

Collaborate More Efficiently

Collaborate with your team more efficiently with a shared library of design components, tools, workflows, and production standards. Integrate information from multiple formats and share models and drawings across geographically dispersed teams without sacrificing discipline or responsibility. Built-in visualization tools make it easier to evaluate materials and communicate designs, bringing your ideas to life.

Evaluate Design Alternatives

Model any type of building or infrastructure, including commercial, industrial, transportation, education, and government buildings, as well as structures like bridges and tunnels. Built-in clash detection makes coordinating building systems more efficient. Use computational design to evaluate more design options and improve overall quality. Embed design intent with expressions and constraint-driven geometry to minimize repetitive modeling work, and use integrated energy services to predict the performance impact of changes.

Design and Simulate Transit Stations

Design and simulate any type of transit station, from high-speed and commuter to metro and light rail, as well as pedestrian travel paths. The functional space definitions and design components catalog are specifically geared towards railway station design. Generative Components templates for complex geometry, like tunnels and platforms, make it easy to create simulation scenarios and analyze foot traffic.
