Founded in 1977 to account for the environmental impacts of building design, construction, and operations, The Weidt Group offers analysis, consulting and software tools that improve decision-making from pre-design, through product selection and post-occupancy. Clients and users of our software, analyses and data stores include utility companies, manufacturers, architects and engineers, evaluators and policy makers. The Weidt Group addresses comparative analyses from the introduction of new energy conservation measures in new construction and existing buildings to the evaluation of actual performance by individual technologies, individual buildings, and whole populations of buildings.
Deep analysis over several decades is the foundation for our work in energy policy, program design, program delivery, project delivery, and software tools. Early on, we went deep to become good at understanding the complexities underlying how energy technologies and buildings actually perform. To influence outcomes, we also learned how design teams, owners, utility companies, users and operators of buildings made their decisions. Bringing them value has always meant finding new ways to go faster and summarize well. Weidt consulting—and now our software—accelerates multiple analyses, extends the functionality of existing energy simulation software, and integrates, stores, and presents data in the Cloud.
Anticipating energy performance with analytical data has steadily gained favor as a Best Practice even as the standards for comparison have evolved beyond basic energy efficiency performance into credits, certifications, and ratings. The Weidt Group has evolved as well to address these multiplicities with greater speed and accuracy. New tools for new times.
