When first using Speckel, Projects always start as free, and you default to a Community level. Billing only occurs if you have upgraded to a Practice or Enterprise level once you have multiple Projects on the go!
To create a Project, you must connect them to a Team. This is important so we can identify which Team is responsible for billing (if applicable). Billing only occurs if you have upgraded to a Practice or Enterprise level, so no upfront or hidden costs!
Creating a Project for the first time means committing to the project’s name, number of storeys, floor to floor height, wind exposure, noise exposure, climate zone, and building class. If you make a mistake, don’t worry – we’re here to help. The steps below will help you create a project, in case you get a little lost!
Step 1 – Starting a Project is super simple and will take only 60 seconds. Get access to Projects either on the main workspace of your Dashboard or on the navigation panel on the left.
Step 2 – Adding Project details enables Speckel to source its NCC assumptions, so you don’t have to. Add your Title, Subtitle and select your Team, and click Next. If you haven’t created a Team yet, create one now.
Step 3 – Selecting your Climate and Building is next, where the Climate Zone and Building Class of your project are identified.
Step 4 – Finally, a simple check that you are happy with your inputs. If not, simply go backwards by clicking on the icons above each section. When your ready, click Create, and you can start using our Studio applications.
