What does Inform Design mean?

Informing Design is the process in which the engineer/modeller assesses the performance of different design alternatives, in order to quantify their benefits and raise awareness as to potential performance failures. It plays a clearly supportive role during the design process and has a maximum effect when included from an early stage.

Informing building and envelope design from a building physics perspective may include topics such as energy use and occupant comfort assessments of proposed facade components, performance evaluation of shading and glazing elements, etc.
