Title Review Review By

DesignBuilder is an incredibly user friendly software which we have been using for LEED certification and energy certificates as long as many other applications related to building performance. I strongly recommend it for advanced and new energy modelers who care about building performance.
A must use software.


I've been using DesignBuilder in a couple of roles for about 8 years. It is currently the central tool for my core work. I have also used IES and HAP a fair amount.

As a front-end to EnergyPlus and Radiance, DesignBuilder has a lot of power but is reasonably accessible for those finding their way for the first time.

As mentioned by others here, the support is really good and the software has come a long way in terms of capabilities and also reliability.

Future developments look promising and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with the package as it continues to grow.
