New technology tools from Scotland's Integrated Environmental Solutions are designed to help those in the AEC industry maximize how sustainably a building is designed. The toolset includes life-cycle cost and assessment and capital cost. There's also a BIM component, and the tools can be customized. "A major advantage of these tools is the ability to get rapid feedback on design options so you can assess and reassess right from concept through to detailed design," said IES Director Craig Wheatley.
