Many different criteria must be balanced in order to provide high quality, comfortable buildings that also comply with building regulations, minimise upfront costs to the client, optimise on-going energy costs and reduce environmental impact.

DesignBuilder enables you to

  • Generate a wide range of outputs and reports to help you compare the performance of design alternatives.
  • Optimise the building at any design stage based on the client’s objectives.
  • Model even complex buildings with the minimum of time and effort.
  • Import existing BIM and CAD design data to give you a head start with data entry.
  • Generate impressive rendered images and movies.
  • Simplify EnergyPlus thermal simulation.

I love the way this whole thing hangs together and again just want to compliment you and your team on a cracking job. From a total design point of view, I absolutely love this program. I find it very well thought out and I enjoy using it.

DesignBuilder Software Packages

A completely modular solution, DesignBuilder comprises a core 3-D modeller and 11 modules which work together to provide in-depth analysis for any building.  Every module fully integrates with its counterparts, so you can pick individual modules or choose one of our packages.

Our software packages contain the most common module combinations for each class of user as shown below. Modules can also be purchased separately and a site network license with any combination of modules is also available. Click on the module name or the job role for more information.

Licensing Option

DesignBuilder also offers licensing options for users to choose the type of license that best suits their requirements during use. In order to save costs and improve efficiency when working.

Perpetual License
A perpetual licence allows you to continue using for as long as you wish, however if you wish to upgrade when it is released you will need to purchase an upgrade.

Annual License
An annual licence has a lower upfront cost but must be renewed each year to continue using the software. This allows you to stay up to date with the latest release of DesignBuilder with no upgrade charges.

Type Description Time
Single User License A Single User licence allows you to run one copy of DesignBuilder at any one time. The software can be installed on any number of computers and moved from one to another. This is the simplest and most common licensing option, suitable for individuals or small teams.  
Site Network License A site network licence is the most convenient way to share one or more licence across a number of networked machines. The site licence server is installed on your network server and provides module licenses on demand to DesignBuilder users on your network. This is a more cost effective option for larger numbers of seats but does require a little additional effort to set up and administer. With a site licence, individual DesignBuilder modules are ordered in quantities sufficient to support your concurrent user requirements. To purchase site licences please contact DesignBuilder sales or your international reseller.  
Evaluation License You may obtain a free 30 day single user evaluation licence to trial DesignBuilder. This will allow you to access all the modules. You may also apply to us for an evaluation extension or to trial modules you did not use during your original evaluation period.  
Education and Student License We provide discounts for educational users and affordable student licences on application and proof of status. Academic institutions that purchase a site network licence for teaching use on the department network can be provided with a number of free single user student licences for use on students own computers. Educational and student licences cannot be used for commercial work or consultancy – a full licence is required for this.
