ConSol provided a technical review and comparative analysis of the energy efficient building practices utilized by D.R. Horton’s La Hiki community and a code compliant (baseline) home. ConSol modeled various energy simulations and created a custom impact study report for D.R. Horton, which summarized the difference in energy consumption and energy and utility cost savings.
We help builders and manufacturers prepare for the financial and operational impacts of energy code changes, as well as provide strategic guidance during the code development cycle to ensure that the new rules are cost effective, practical, and implementable for the industry. We also work with relevant regulatory bodies to ensure builders’ needs receive formal recognition in energy design calculations for building compliance and performance.
We leverage advanced modeling capabilities to conduct technical analyses that quantify the energy, carbon, and cost impacts of new technologies, policies, and building practices. In particular, our energy simulation modeling has been pivotal in helping manufacturers understand code and technical opportunities for existing products and products under development.
