The free EDGE software offers a measurable way to cut back on the resource intensity of your building design.
The EDGE software can be used for free to design a resource-efficient commercial or residential building in more than 160 countries. Enter as much of your building information as you can, then choose systems and solutions and watch your savings grow. Discover the advantages of smart building design by pinpointing which options have the best results for the least cost.
The EDGE software calculates the utility savings and reduced carbon footprint of your green building against a base case. Your dashboard shows how much extra it costs to build green – and how short a time it takes to earn back the money through operational savings.
Reach the EDGE standard when your project hits 20 percent less energy, water and embodied energy in materials, and your project is ready for EDGE certification. See how you can model an energy-efficient building when you watch the demo.
