Integrated Environmental Solutions, or IES, has partnered with Google SketchUp. The integration between IES and SketchUp enables performance analysis of design iterations across a range of areas, such as energy, carbon, water, climate impact, solar and daylight—even at very early design stages. This will help achieve low-energy sustainable building designs and assess the economics of low/zero carbon technology and renewable energy use.
- A discount on SketchUp Pro licenses is being offered to all IES VE users, including users of the free IES VE-Ware energy and carbon calculation tool.
- The partnership demonstrates IES and SketchUp’s commitment to the existing plug-in link between the two software platforms.
- Low-cost, high-quality solution
- Range of analysis options and suitability for different user types
