DLR Group and Building Energy Inc. Announce Partnership

DLR Group announced today it will use innovative cloud based software from Building Energy Inc., to enhance the firm's ability to provide data driven design solutions to clients. DLR Group design teams will collaborate with Building Energy experts to develop empirical measures for the design and successful implementation of carbon neutral buildings. The partnership allows DLR Group to provide clients a unique cradle-to-cradle service to monitor and improve building performance from the inception of a building to the end of its useful life.

The Building Energy technology platform will enable DLR Group integrated design teams around the world to collect and analyze both design and building performance data in real time. This will enable DLR Group to make data based design decisions to deliver high performance buildings in order to meet the carbon neutrality goal of the Architecture 2030 Challenge.

“Incorporating the Building Energy platform to enable true data driven design puts us at the forefront of innovation in this space,” said DLR Group Global Sustainability Leader Premnath Sundharam, AIA, LEED AP BD+C. “The design industry needs advanced tools like Building Energy’s robust data management and visualization technology to achieve the goals of Architecture 2030. This technology is not a nice to have; in our view this is a must-have for data-driven sustainable design.”

"DLR Group and Building Energy have a commitment to carbon neutral buildings that goes beyond mere words," said Magnus Cheifetz, Building Energy CEO. “This partnership will result in new practice and technology to bring carbon neutral buildings into being."
