SEFAIRA SYSTEMS

Real-time HVAC design for engineers.

Your clients want more feedback in early design. Sefaira Systems allows you
to deliver rigorous analysis of many HVAC options in record time.

RAPID

From an architectural model to key
HVAC outputs in under 10 minutes

ROBUST

Built on EnergyPlus — the industry
standard for building simulation

FLEXIBLE

Easily compare massing options,
envelope properties, and HVAC design
choices

HOW SEFAIRA IS DIFFERENT

A New Approach to Performance Analysis

How Other Tools Work

Validation analysis.

Validation analysis.

Traditional analysis tools are designed to validate a design that is essentially complete. If a design is not meeting goals, it’s often too late to make major change.
Tells you where you are.

Tells you where you are.

Many analysis tools provide a snapshot of performance, but don’t help you explore options or plot the way forward.
Slow, linear analysis.

Slow, linear analysis.

Designed to do one analysis at a time, and limited to the computational power of your computer. Comparisons are often difficult and time consuming to create.
Disconnected metrics.

Disconnected metrics.

Most tools do one thing: energy, carbon, thermal comfort or renewables; or they have discrete modules with independent inputs and outputs.
Disconnected from design.

Disconnected from design.

Other tools require that you stop design, provide additional inputs, and perform analysis in a separate environment.
Requires extensive inputs.

Requires extensive inputs.

Most tools require dozens (or even hundreds) of inputs before you see results — inputs that aren’t available in the early stages of design.
For a single user.

For a single user.

Traditional desktop software makes it difficult to collaborate on analysis, particularly with dispersed teams.
Built for specialists.

Built for performance experts.

Traditional tools are complex and arcane, requiring special expertise to get valid results.

How Sefaira Works

Design Feedback.

Design Feedback.

Sefaira is designed to provide relevant feedback from the earliest stages of design, while a design is still evolving.
Helps you get where you want to be.

Helps you get where you want to be.

Frequent, iterative analysis helps you set your design on track early in the process.
Fast, parallel analysis.

Fast, parallel analysis.

Sefaira is built for comparison and parametric analysis. Cloud computing enables multiple parallel runs letting you explore options quickly and focus in on the best solutions.
All-in-one, integrated analysis.

All-in-one, integrated analysis.

Sefaira performs analysis of energy, carbon, thermal comfort, and renewables with a single click.
Integrated with your design tool.

Integrated with your design tool.

Sefaira provides Real-Time Energy and Daylighting Analysis within Trimble SketchUp and Autodesk Revit, and allows direct uploads to the web for detailed analysis.
Flexible, scalable inputs.

Flexible, scalable inputs.

Sefaira lets you get started with only 3 inputs: a model, a location, and a space use. Add more detail to your design as it becomes available.
Collaborative.

Collaborative.

Sefaira is a cloud-based application, accessible from anywhere. You can easily share projects with other users, making collaboration simple.
Built for everyone.

Built for everyone.

Sefaira is built for designers. Its clear, intuitive interface makes it usable for the non-expert.
