ASUL came to Loisos + Ubbelohde with a problem: with a focus on keeping project costs low, how can the team quickly identify priorities for most effectively improving building envelope energy performance? The ASUL system of structure and envelope provides an opportunity for architects or property owners to build customized modern homes at predictable prices.

L+U developed a method of energy analysis to provide guidance for the design team prior to finalization of the building envelope. The detailed analysis based on Energy Plus simulations provides the ASUL project team with a prioritized list of recommended envelope improvements customized for each unique design in a different climate. The analyses have informed specification of building components including glazing, insulation, thermal mass, and lighting.
