Environmental Simulations

We use environmental simulation tools when planning our towns to maximise wind flow and optimise the placement of solar panels. This helps to keep the environment cool and comfortable, and allows us to tap on solar energy.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (Wind Simulation)

Through computational fluid dynamics, we are able to arrange our blocks to capitalise on prevalent wind flows, and channel wind into the precinct and residential spaces.

Sun-Shadow and Solar Irradiance Simulation

Residential units and facades are designed using solar irradiance simulations. This tool helps us minimise heat gain into the units, and identify naturally shady areas to build precinct facilities such as playgrounds.

Sun-Shadow and Solar Irradiance Simulation
Guided by shadow analysis, facilities in the precincts are arranged and adjusted to capitalise on light and shade
Solar radiation on windows
Solar irradiance studies guide the fa├žade design of residential blocks to reduce solar radiation on windows, to keep the flats cooler
Solar irradiance studies
Solar irradiance studies at the precinct level helps to verify whether spaces are conducive for the intended use in terms of thermal comfort
