FenestraPro provides software that enables building designers to design more energy efficient non-domestic building façades. As the façade is the primary moderator between the internal and external environment, it plays a critical role in the design of energy efficient buildings. The FenestraPro range of applications provides users with key design parameters early in the design process relating to the environmental performance of the façade. It balances heat loss, heat gain and natural daylighting, and optimises the passive aspects of building design. For further information see www.fenestrapro.com.
