Dear Building Raters,

As part of my PhD research I am conducting a research about Architects
Friendly Building Energy Simulation Tools (BESTs), so that we can improve
the future development of simulation tools. Therefore the survey is
dedicated to gather information from beginner simulation tools users.

Therefore, I am asking you please to take the survey and to
spread this survey to your BLDG-Rate list who meet the criteria below:

1-Architects or 2-Designers or 3-Graduate students or 4-Beginner Users who
use simulation tools to create sustainable architecture in the USA

The survey has 22 questions and the duration is 10-15 minutes. The
compared tools are:

ECOTECT, HEED, Energy 10, Design Builder, eQUEST, DOE-2, Green Design
Studio, IES VE, Energy Plus and Energy Plus-Sketchup Plugin.

You can access the survey via:


and if if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,


PS: you can also send me a mailing list and I will send the invitations.

Shady Attia,
