6.1 Performance Manager

2 minutesread

This window displays the current element properties in the model and compares them to a Building Code that you create as a reference. It also calculates the Maximum Allowable Glazing based on that Code and other summaries such as Maximum Building Performance, Current Façade Performance and Maximum Façade Performance.

With Conceptual Mass models, there are no building elements in the model (walls, floors, roofs or glazing) and only notional glazing areas.  The values displayed then are an indication of what would be required to comply with the reference benchmarks chosen (In Detailed models, the existing properties of elements in the model are shown).  Moving the sliders displays the value that would need to be reached to comply.

Note: These values are not written to either the Mass model or Detailed model. They are used by the application in its calculations.

In Detailed models, there are also no sliders available.  Values for elements in Detailed models may be adjusted by using Type Properties in Revit to modify the assembly and materials.  This is covered in Section 7.1 below.
