Demonstrations will take place at AIA, booth #2951, June 26-28

June 24th 2014 –- IES will be demonstrating its new building compliance tool for California's Title 24 at this year's AIA, Chicago. The first commercial software to be approved, the tool is ready for the launch of the regulations on July 1st.

*Integrated data model shares input data across all VE modules including the VE-Navigator for ASHRAE 90.1 (LEED Energy), Dalylighting and Solar analysis modules.

*Edit multiple rooms for rapid data assignment.

*Data input visualisation – easily interrogate input data.
