Life cycle assessment and operational energy demand calculation of buildings in just one second.
CAALA calculates the operational energy demand of buildings in real-time during the early design stage. At the same time, a complete environmental and economic life-cycle assessment is performed. The results are visualised in a comprehensible and intuitive way.
FIND THE OPTIMAL SOLUTION FOR YOUR BUILDING DESIGN IN NO TIME.
YOU DESIGN. WE CALCULATE.
Having to wait for operational energy demand and life-cycle assessment results is no longer required. After years of research at the Bauhaus University Weimar, an innovative, parametric design-integrated approach for determining the ecological footprint of buildings in real-time has been developed: Parametric Life-Cycle Assessment (PLCA®). CAALA is the only software worldwide to employ this approach in order to reduce the user input to a minimum and rapidly produce significant results.
THE ONE-OF-A-KIND PLCA® SOFTWARE CAALA ALLOWS FOR A HOLISTIC DESIGN APPROACH.
Let your creativity guide you! Don’t worry about series of calculations and formulas. CAALA helps you to identify how to fulfill energy regulations and stay within budgets. Ourcloud-based service designed as a plug-in is seamlessly connected with your CAD-software. CAALA accompanies you throughout the entire design process, thus allowing you to gain continuously feedback along the way. CAALA does not require in-depth previous knowledge of life-cycle assessment.
INTEGRATE CAALA DIRECTLY IN YOUR CAD-SOFTWARE.
OPTIMAL BUILDING DESIGN
Analyse the impact of your design decisions with respect to the building’s life cycle performance. Create different building design variants and compare their economic and environmental performance. Instead of manually optimizing the building design, you can also run our optimization algorithm, which identifies the best combination of materials, insulation thickness and building technology.
