Authorised Reseller of Integrated Environmental Solutions in India
IES is a leading global innovator of integrated 3D sustainable analysis technology for the measurable creation and management of efficient, healthy and affordable built-environments.
Their technology and consulting services uncover hidden cost, energy and carbon savings that support smarter energy-efficient choices across new building investments, building operation and refurbishment of existing buildings. We deliver unique tools and technology to assist regulatory and rating agencies, building owners, facilities managers, sustainability and energy managers, architects and engineers in their objectives.
IES invest over ¼ of our turnover in R&D to ensure our analytical tools and industry knowledge stays the most pioneering and innovative.
IES Virtual Environment
The IES Virtual Environment (IESVE) is a powerful, in-depth suite of building performance analysis software tools. It allows the design and operation of comfortable buildings that consume significantly less energy. Whether working on a new build or renovation project, the VE allows designers to test different options, identify best passive solutions, compare low-carbon & renewable technologies, and draw conclusions on energy use, CO2 emissions, occupant comfort, and much more.
There are various tools in the suite; each designed to provide sustainable analysis at levels suitable for different design team members and design stages. All utilise an integrated central data model, which has direct links to SketchUp, Revit® or Trelligence™, and gbXML, Vectorworks Architect, Trimble Plancal IFC & dxf imports.
VE for Engineers
The VE for Engineers is a comprehensive and detailed toolset for building performance simulation. The Virtual Environment has a central data model which allows all types of analysis to be undertaken in an integrated manner, so results can be easily shared amongst applications to further inform and refine simulations, therefore the software has a truly whole building perspective. VE-Pro offers a flexible choice of modules across the following categories:
– Energy, Carbon, Thermal, Solar, Daylight, Light, CFD, Bulk airflow, HVAC, Climate, Egress, Ingress, Value, Cost, and Low Carbon/Renewable strategies.

The VE-Navigators are region specific tools which address Global Rating System and Regulation requirements. They provide a robust and detailed step-by-step structured workflow alongside in-built QA functionality. VE-Navigators for LEED, LEED 2009 (2012 rev), ASHRAE 90.1 (LEED Energy), LEED-India, BREEAM, Green Star, Green Mark, New Zealand Compliance and UK Compliance 2010, UK Compliance 2013, OTTV Hong Kong, OTTV Malaysia are currently available.
VE for Architects
VE for Architects is IES’s architectural analysis tool which is used by architects, designers, urban planners, masterplanners, and even engineers who want to complete quick and early stage studies, such as for design competitions. Its step-by-step workflow system simplifies simulation and allows users to progress from earlier generalized comparisons into detailed early-stage calculations across the following categories:
– Climate, Bioclimate, Natural resource availability, Building & material characteristics, Solar Shading, Water reduction, Daylighting, Energy, Carbon, Heating/cooling loads, and Potential efficient & renewable technologies.
