Vision-e provides specialty-consulting services in sustainable design. Our highly qualified staff offers consultancy services in the areas of energy efficiency analysis, microclimate and natural ventilation studies; day lighting analysis; solar studies; and renewable energy applications. Our team has extensive experience in the field of sustainable design and energy modeling, with widespread accumulated experience in different aspects of environmental design. We believe that our main advantage over others is our interdisciplinary in-depth experience in architectural design, building science, and mechanical engineering. Our team masters a group of Hi-tech design and simulation tools that can predict the performance of new and innovative ideas, while saving extra construction cost.
From new buildings to renovations, certification, energy consultation and commercial and institutional projects, we have services to meet your needs
Our company can guide project teams to achieve energy efficiency criteria required for building permits or green rating certifications. Depending on the client requirements of various green certifications and/or jurisdictions. We can build our models to comply with any required standards, including but not limited to: ASHRAE 90.1, National Energy Code, Ashrae 14, IPMVP, ASHRAE 189.
Our platform is EnergyPlus; the most capable simulation engine available in the industry.
We provide a full range lighting simulation services. Even if it is required for LEED certification or to reach a client specific indoor environmental quality targets we can help.
We are pleased to help architechts optimize building envelope design by performing building assembly calculations using LBNL THERM or WINDOWS and WUFI
Alaa’s skills in Building Environmental Controls Systems, especially performance modeling using cutting edge technologies such as Energy Plus; DOE 2; CFD; THERM; WUFI; RETscreen; and Radiance, allowed him to support design teams in different projects that he took part in during all stages of design, resulting in energy efficient facilities that complies with codes and regulations, qualifies for various sustainability certifications, and save money on the same time.
One of the main advantages that put Alaa on top of all competitors in the field of sustainable design and energy modeling is his in-depth interdisciplinary experience and education. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Design from University of Calgary, a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering and a Masters of Engineering. He is also a LEED Accredited Professional since 2009.
Samia has a Bachelor degree of Architectural Engineering and a Mater degree in Architecture and Ph.D. in Urban Planning and sustainable cities. Samia has worked in designing and renovating residential and commercial building for more than ten years. She has published a number of research papers in urban conservation, sustainable cities, and green buildings.
Her recent research areas are sustainable construction and net zero buildings. Her recent publication was on using energy modeling simulation to assess the performance of greenhouses. The research work was published at the international clean energy conference in 2016.
