The holistic energetic pre-dimensioning facilitates the later exhibition of the obligatory proofs. This saves you coordination effort, changes to plans and the need to obtain planning permission more quickly.

"It saves all those involved headaches and displeasure if energy requirements and compliance with the EnEV are taken into account from the outset."
- Raffael Rackwitz, Energy Consultant from Berlin

CAALA offers you fast feedback in the decisive early planning phases as to whether your design will comply with guidelines such as EnEV or KFW Effizienzhaus 40. This avoids any later surprises when creating the necessary proofs.

"Energetically and aesthetically questionable compromises to comply with the EnEV are now a thing of the past thanks to CAALA."

Prof. Thomas Auer

Chair of Building Technology and Building Climate Control TU Munich & Managing Director of Transsolar Energietechnik

The building sector plays a central role in meeting the climate targets that have been set. For a holistic understanding of the actors, it is extremely important to have tools that enable statements to be made about the environmental impact based on the entire life cycle of the building at an early stage - beyond the energy requirement during operation.

Paul Mittermeier

Managing Director Bau-Institut für Ressourcen effizientes und Nachhaltiges Bauen GmbH

Optimising the entire life cycle of a building has never been easier or more efficient. With CAALA, architects can plan their building designs much more sustainably than before and estimate their environmental impacts and life cycle costs in real time.

Giulia Peretti

Team leader at WSGreenTechnologies GmbH

"CAALA enables a statement to be made on the environmental effects of the materials in an earlier planning phase. The interface with SketchUp enables rapid area acquisition, so that the issue of grey energy is also taken into account in the early planning phases."

Prof. Dr. Guillaume Habert

Chair of Sustainable Building ETH Zurich

CAALA is the future of LCA. By using simple, parametric 3D models, the method makes the leap from science to practice.
