SketchUp Studio

SketchUp Studio Subscriptions include Sefaira Perfomance-Based Design. Sefaira is early stage building analysis software for designers who care about building performance.

All the analysis you need to design better buildings.

The easiest way to design

 

SketchUp Studio is the simplest way to steer your projects ahead with confidence. Model your project with the SketchUp tools you know and love, plus all the analysis tools you need to build efficient buildings.

Whatever your project goals, we can help. Whether you’re designing a passive low energy home, wanting to meet the 2030 challenge or aiming for another performance goal, SketchUp Studio helps you drive consensus on how to improve your project and worry less about whether you’re on track.

Energy

Track valuable performance metrics such as Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and see what factors are impacting your annual energy use.
 

Daylighting

Use key daylight metrics such as Spatial Daylight Autonomy (sDA), Annual Sunlight Exposure (ASE), Direct Sunlight, Annual or Date and Time, and Daylight Factor to analyze and visualize your building’s daylight, reduce glare, and optimize natural light.
 

Thermal comfort

Understand how glazing, shading, and natural and mechanical ventilation impact the comfort of your spaces using sensitive metrics such as Operative Temperature and Predicted Mean Vote (PMV).
 

HVAC sizing

Understand how peak loads such as heating and cooling are impacting your plant sizing and find passive and active strategies for reducing them.

Analyze and iterate fast

Get your building performance results in minutes instead of weeks. Run full annual simulations powered by industry-accredited EnergyPlus® and Radiance®. Sefaira’s analysis is nimble enough to keep up with the pace of conceptual and schematic design.

Make smart design decisions

You do the design, we’ll show you how factors such as massing, layout, and façade design affect the metrics that matter to you. Whether your goal is to achieve a net zero energy design or a smaller HVAC system, Sefaira’s results will help you steer your project in the right direction.

Get consensus

Share what you’ve discovered with your team or clients, and use compelling visuals to convince them of the performance merits of your design.
