“Less visible features can enhance the performance of a building and impact how we experience a space. Understanding these components and their interactions help design teams prioritize features that impact performance holistically.”

Amarpreet leads the DLR Group’s Building Performance Design Team. She uses her knowledge of climate-responsive design, daylighting, HVAC systems, and various energy efficient techniques to aid the architectural and engineering teams’ delivery of high-performing solutions for buildings and their users. Particularly, these techniques are used in conjunction with energy, thermal, and daylighting modeling. Amarpreet is responsible for energy modeling best practices, communication with clients for operational cost savings of design solutions, and working with team members to provide technical guidance. Additional areas of expertise include design assistance modeling, modeling for LEED, and thermal modeling for natural ventilation.

“I believe that performance design is crucial to the design process, and when employed early on, it can help establish clear, realistic goals and a pathway to achieving these set objectives.”

Driven by a passion to provide valuable contributions to clients’ sustainability goals through building simulation services, Amarpreet has been performing energy modeling for over 15 years. Her interest in sustainable design began while she was obtaining her Architecture degree in India, leading her to achieve a Master’s in Energy and Climate. Amarpreet is a Certified Energy Manager, an ASHRAE certified Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP), a High Performance Building Design Professional (HBDP), and is LEED and WELL accredited.
