See below how Ceilings by Gyproc can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Integrative Process
To support high-performance, cost-effective project outcomes through an early analysis of the interrelationships among systems.
Beginning in pre-design and continuing throughout the design phases, the project needs to identify and use opportunities to achieve synergies across disciplines and building systems for Energy and Water-Related Systems.
For the “Energy-Related Systems” part, a preliminary “simple box” energy modelling analysis has to be performed before the completion of schematic design that explores how to reduce energy loads in the building and accomplish related sustainability goals by questioning default assumptions. At least two potential strategies associated with site conditions, massing and orientation, basic envelope attributes, lighting levels, thermal comfort ranges, plus and process load needs, programmatic and operational parameters need to be assessed.

To ensure high-performance and cost-effective project outcomes, early collaboration with the entire project team is necessary. SageGlass® has a dedicated team that can join your project from the outset to work together and create synergies from respective knowledge and creativity. They can support you throughout the project, from incorporating SageGlass into an early "simple box" energy model for LEED’s Integrative Process credit up to a complex energy and daylighting analysis that accounts for envelope features and lighting.
Also, in the knowledge that Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a major breakthrough to improve construction and maintenance processes, SageGlass has developed BIM objects. These offer significant detail and precision at a graphic design level as well as for contents. This will help architectural, engineering, and construction service providers in model development, to assess energy consumption and lighting, insulation values and thermal comfort ranges, as well as anticipated operations and maintenance. It is further evidence of our commitment to green building.
