Empowering Performance-based Design with the Sefaira Add-in for Revit

Integrates with Revit & SketchUp

Integrate with your favourite design tools using your existing models.

Compare design options

Quickly compare multiple design options and iterations to find the best designs, explore tradeoffs between options, and see whether you’re heading in the right direction. Use comparisons to set the project on the right track early, refine the design as it progresses, and test the effects of design changes (including value engineering) in the later stages.

Find the best design strategies

Sefaira’s industry leading Strategies and Bundles framework helps you identify the design strategies that will have the biggest impact on performance, so you can focus on the Strategies that matter most, and find the combinations (“Bundles”) that deliver breakthrough performance.

Parametric Analysis

Sefaira’s Response Curves can be used to optimize orientation, glazing ratios, shading devices, thermal mass, R-values, and everything in between within seconds.

Collaborate with your team

With all your sustainability data in one place, collaboration within your practice and external
consultants has never been easier. Add as many relevant team members to your chosen project as
you want.

"With Sefaira, we can run iterative analysis and test many different options early in the design process. We can see how changing specific variables changes predicted building loads — a level of detail that isn’t possible to achieve with rules of thumb." - Matt Petermann, Regional Digital Practice Manager, Perkins & Will
