The IMPACT Process
IMPACT works with a wide range of building types from the earliest stage of design onwards. Initially, the user selects a building template with predefined material information. As the design progresses the predefined material information is refined and expanded by selecting elemental constructions (e.g. complete roofs, external walls, windows) from a library of alternatives. During the detailed design stages the user increases accuracy further by replacing library constructions with building-specific component and material information.
