Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the use of building performance simulation (BPS) among the building design professionals in Egypt. To assess the situation and highlight the status and difficulties encounter in the usage and the needs for BPS tools, three workshops were held, in July and August 2010 in Cairo. The paper first presents a brief overview of the status of the use of BPS in practice then describes the methods used, including, surveys, interviews, tools testing, brainstorming sessions and discussions. Finally, the study presents recommendations for the process of developing and using performance simulation tools for building design support.
