"Diamond Schmitt Architects and RWDI were presented with the Green Building Pioneer Award from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) of Greater Toronto for their innovative database, ecoMetrics.
“ecoMetrics was developed in response to the belief that improving energy literacy and setting an energy reduction target is a powerful incentive to achieve better green building results,” said Mike Szabo, principal at Diamond Schmitt Architects, in a press release.
The live interactive database analyzes building energy simulation models for a growing portfolio of over 70 Diamond Schmitt projects across a variety of building types. A dataset of over 10,000 points is captured in user-friendly graphics in a series of customized templates for energy use, carbon emissions, code and benchmarking systems."
