Columbia, Maryland (May 14, 2008)—In keeping with its commitment to the development of new technology, Nemetschek North America (NNA) is proud to introduce ThermoRender at the AIA National convention in Boston from May 15-May 17.
ThermoRender—developed by A&A Co., LTD., NNA’s distributor in Japan—is a VectorWorks-based application that is a unique simulation and analysis tool for the thermal environment. In recent years, it has become necessary to consider the thermal environment when developing urban areas, and the measures for mitigating heat-island effect and global warming have been actively introduced into architecture and urban development. ThermoRender plays a key role in this development, as it can visualize surface temperatures, calculate Heat Island Potential (HIP), Mean Radiant Temperature (MRT), energy consumption, CO2 emission, and much more. A&A and ThermoRender have received great recognition as the recipients of the 2007 Good Design Award and the 2007 Architectural Institute of Japan prize.
"Following the trend within the AEC industry in recent years, we’re proud to introduce a technology that is capable of displaying the efficiency of a building and its environment," says Stewart Rom, vice-president of Nemetschek North America sales & marketing.
A 45-minute presentation on ThermoRender will be given at NNA’s booth (#22115) on Thursday, May 15, from 11:30-12:15 p.m. and 2:15-3 p.m.; on Friday, May 16, from 2:15-3 p.m.; and on Saturday, May 17, from 10:30-11:15 a.m. and 12:30-1 p.m.
