- 20+ Years Experience
- With more than 4.000 simulations in over 145 countries, ENVI-MET distinguishes from other models through its innovative and holistic approach, offering an integrated simulation of the environmental system that turns your green thinking into crisp numerical values.
ENVI-MET is a multidisciplinary simulation consultancy with a core services portfolio including architecture, building physics and microclimate; landscape architecture and garden design; it also includes urban planning and climate change adaption and human comfort and health.
Passionate and driven by the desire to understand and simulate our environment as a holistic organism, the founders of ENVI-MET have the vision
to prove the beneficial effects of architectural designs, Green and Blue technologies and landscape architecture for the outdoor climate through objective scientific methods. Working worldwide for academic, civic, residential and commercial property clients our clients’ needs for sustainability and aspirations to build green designs are the foundation of our approach and the services we provide.
Over the years, we have solved many distinctive and challenging commercial and academic projects for our customers. Here you can find a selection of the projects we were and are currently involved worldwide.
Besides our general business, we support Pro bono projects, as we know that Nonprofit and official organizations seek support in multiple areas and benefit from expert knowledge. By delivering innovative solutions around the scope of ENVI-MET´s simulation capacities we support local initiatives and organizations in their effort to create a sustainable and comfortable environment especially off the track of high-budget ventures.
