5.0 Managers

2 minutesread

Managers are where you can access certain features related to one area of analysis.

The following are used in the Conceptual Mass application:

    1. Building Manager– Define detailed information about the building such as the Building Use, Location and the yearly, weekly, and hourly usage.  Calculate Shading effects if required. Get Solar Data for your project.

    2. Performance Manager – Set Building Code values as target references.  Set Thermal Properties of elements for Conceptual models (Roof, Floor, Façade Performance Level, Glazing, and Wall). Set glazing percentage for a Mass Model.  View compliance status, Building Performance and Façade Performance.

    3. Façade Manager– Set glazing specifications and Glass to Wall ratios in Conceptual Mass models at a building, Façade, and/or Surface level. Define settings for shading canopies, fritting and surrounds if not modeled.  Choose Facades/Surfaces for analysis (Results will display for those selections only).

For Conceptual Masses – Building Manager, Performance Manager and Facade Manager

For Detailed models, there is also a Building Manager and Performance/Compliance area as well as a Facade Navigator for making selections on the project.

Facade Navigator on the left for making selections. Building Manager shown the right for defining project settings and getting results.
For Detailed models – define an Energy Code and check compliance

Note: The Energy Units in Revit may sometimes be changed if model units have been changed from imperial or metric. There is also a setting in FenestraPro to convert the results to either metric or imperial units.

If there are differences in the units seen in Revit as compared to the units used in FenestraPro, these can be adjusted in Revit by going to the ‘Manage‘ tab – ‘Project Units’.  Choose ‘Energy Units’ instead of ‘Common Units’ and set this to the appropriate value (imperial or metric) if required so that the units are consistent in Revit and FenestraPro.
