How it works...

Import of the building model from Revit 2016 - 2018

The function allows you to import a building model from Revit 2016 - 2019Revit has the ability to export a building model to the gbXML format. In order for the gbXML file to be properly adapted to the Audytor HL, you should use Audytor gbXML - the Revit plugin. Depending on the amount of data entered in Revit, the model may be almost full after the transfer. In the Audytor HL, only the data on the functions of rooms and the grouping of rooms can be supplemented. The imported building model can be verified using a three-dimensional preview.

About the program

The calculation methodologies given in current standards and regulations are in many cases very complicated, often containing a lot of insignificant details, and are also full of errors. The many years of experience of our company and the software development team (the core of the company is made up of employees and graduates of the Institute of Heating and Ventilation at the Warsaw University of Technology) enabled the development of a program that on the one hand allows for thermal calculations in accordance with applicable regulations, on the other frees designers from the need for in-depth study often unclear regulations.

 

Our many years of experience have allowed us to eliminate many errors occurring in the regulations and to introduce additional extensions of calculation methods that increase the flexibility of the program.

The solutions used in the program (data inheritance system) make that despite complicated computational methods and a huge amount of information necessary to enter in order to perform calculations, the time necessary to prepare a project is not too long.

 

We have also equipped our program with an extensive error diagnosis system and interpretation of the results obtained.

All this combined with the intuitive and transparent data entry process means that the program is able to guide the designer through the calculations process.

To meet our clients' expectations and market needs, the Audytor HL program is constantly updated by us and adapted to current changes in regulations.

Module supporting the initial filling in of the Central register of energy performance of buildings form

The module supports the completion of the Central register of energy performance of buildings form, avoiding the manual rewriting of large amounts of data. Thanks to it, it is possible to significantly reduce the time necessary to register the certificate.

 

The program works with the version of the Central Registry from May 2019.

In the event of changes to the Central Register, the authors will try to adapt the program accordingly, if it is technically possible. However, if changes to the Central Registry prevent automatic data transfer, this function will not work.

Determining building energy performance certificates according to the methodology in Journal Of Laws of 2014. Item 888 - calculation method

From version 6.5 Pro, the HL programs designate the Energy Performance Certificate in accordance with the Regulation of the Minister of Infrastructure and Development of 3 June 2014 on the methodology for calculating the energy performance of a building and a residential premises or part of a building constituting an independent technical and operational whole as well as the method of drawing up and specifying energy performance certificates. The "calculation method" has been implemented in the program.

The 6.5 Pro program is equipped with an intelligent switching system between the methodology for calculating the ŚChE from 2008 and the methodology from 2014. In the majority of cases, switching can be done with one click.

The designated certificate can be printed and saved in many electronic formats, e.g. DOC, XLS, BMP, or an edit-protected PDF file.

The Audytor HL is one of the programs most often chosen by certifiers.

Possibility to add your own linear thermal bridges to the database

The program is equipped with a thermal bridges catalog according to PN-EN ISO 14683. This catalogue can be supplemented by user with additional thermal bridges.

Bonding and scaling drawings

HL programs (from version 6.0), and CH (from 4.0) are equipped with the function of Graphic creation of a building model. This function gives you the opportunity to draw a building model. To simplify the action of drawing, you can load a drawing base into the program. The file being loaded can come from an external program for creating technical drawings (eg DWG), or from a scanned drawing (eg JPG). The scanned drawing can be divided into several files. Drawings scanned into several files usually do not keep the scale precisely enough. They can also be rotated relative to each other by a small number of degrees.

Drawing bonding allows you to quickly scale multiple scanned drawings (in different sizes and rotated) and bond them with one another.

The ability to define which groups of rooms are not to be taken into account when calculating the cost sharing factors

The calculation procedure has added the option of skipping selected groups of rooms when determining the coefficients for cost sharing.

The ability to define the default LENI value for lighting

The program is equipped with the option to impose the LENI value for the same lighting for all rooms in the building, if it was calculated by the lighting designer.

Backup system of data files

The program has a mechanism that automatically creates a set of project backups (up to 8 files).

Data files are backed up every time data is saved, with the new files overwriting the older files so that at least one copy of the file from each stage of the project work is always kept.

This function will allow you to recover the project file even if its last versions are overwritten or damaged.

Cooperation with programs from the SET family

After calculating the heat load, the results can be downloaded from CH family programs, eg Audytor CH. CH programs are used to graphically support the design of installations and to regulate existing central heating and chilled water installations. On the basis of the drawing of the installation and the devices selected by the user, the program selects radiators, pipe diameters, fittings and pre-settings of valves, pumps, gives total pressure loss in the installation etc.

Energy Performance Certificate according to the methodology from 2008

The program equipped with this module supporting the determination of an Energy Performance Certificate in accordance with the Regulation of the Minister of Infrastructure of 6 November 2008 on the methodology for calculating the energy performance of a building and a residential unit or part of a building constituting an independent technical and operational whole, as well as the method of preparing and specifying energy performance certificates .

It is possible to make certificates for all designs contained in the regulation, including designs for buildings equipped with cooling installations. The Audytor HL is one of the programs most often chosen by certifiers.

The designated certificate can be printed and saved in many electronic formats, e.g. DOC, XLS, BMP, or an edit-protected PDF file.

Correctness check of the model

After 3D computer models of buildings have been created, designers can perform correctness check of entered building partitions.

Easy input of your design data into the computer

User's friendly 3D design editor assists designers in effective and fast data input.

Easy computer modelling of storeys of buildings

Thanks to the functionality of entering building base drawings, users can draw walls, windows, doors and floors with no requirement of precise manual dimensioning of all these components. Import of building base drawings is possible from DWG files, bitmaps or directly from scanning devices

Correctness check of the model

After 3D computer models of buildings have been created, designers can perform correctness check of entered building partitions.

Time saving

The concepts of data inheritance and default data will save users time and effort when entering individual building components.

Option for fast modification of parameters

Application of variables enables performing variant calculations.

Preliminary selection of radiators

Already at the stage of designing buildings, designers can assess the required dimensions of radiators in heating systems.

Assistance in preparation of technical documentation

Designers can prepare technical documentation for projects, basing on extensive overviews of materials, building partitions and selected radiators.
