Conserving Resources with Energy Modeling Optimization Architecture
Energy consumption is an important consideration in every building project, for owners, occupants and the environment. During our more than 25 years of experience providing a full suite of sustainable design and consulting services, Epsten Group has partnered with clients in a wide variety of industries to address their energy consumption challenges and create solutions that maximize energy-efficiency, including energy modeling.
Using the latest technologies, Epsten Group’s energy models/energy audits help clients accurately quantify the energy characteristics of a building and what that will mean for energy usage over a building’s lifetime. When we combine energy modeling with our other sustainable design and consulting services, we can help you identify the most effective methods of optimizing energy and environmental performance throughout the life of a building. This can result in dramatic cost savings as well as significant environmental benefits.

Our energy modeling team is an essential part of our firm, which is a global leader in LEED certification reviews, and has participated in both the creation of new models and in performing third-party reviews for thousands of building energy simulations worldwide. Our knowledge helps project teams follow a clear path for projects seeking to achieve LEED or other sustainable building certifications. With several energy modelers on staff and the ability to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) to quickly create complex model geometry, we can efficiently provide our clients with whole building energy simulations for both new and existing projects.
Epsten Group’s energy modeling team offers a wide array of experience in engineering. The group includes LEED Accredited Professionals, Certified Energy Managers and licensed Professional Engineers, which allows us to deliver an effective cross-functional approach to energy modeling.
Our sustainable design and energy-efficient building design services help transform the greater Atlanta area, individual building projects, whole communities and the entire planet.
