The Building Assessment app simply allows you to pull together both a J1.5 assessment (ABCB Façade calculator) and a JV3 assessment, both at one time.
Step 1 – Navigate to the Building Assessment app or your Project, Create a Design, give it a name and you are ready to go.
Step 2 – Next step… simply import an underlay (.PNG) of the building plan you would like to assess. These guys do a great job of converting from PDF.
Step 3 – Next, let's set up the CAD interface, by calibrating it to a know dimension on your plan and setting preferred snapping, direction, and opacity settings.
Step 4 – Finally, select the Draw Zones tool and trace around your plane to nominate the areas of interest. Once you are complete, you will have collated all the areas required for the next step... nominating thermal performance values.
