Adrianna Schneider, LEED A.P., Application Engineer, Building Solutions
Class Title: Got Green?: Using Autodesk Products to Reduce Energy Consumption
This class will explain how to use Autodesk products to efficiently and effectively create more sustainable building designs. Use Project Vasari to create different conceptual mass shapes and perform very early energy analysis to determine the most efficient profile. Incorporate the masses into the Revit platforms to create simple energy models and utilize the central location to manipulate the information for further analysis. Use Green Building Studio to determine and reduce energy costs and consumption based on rotation, materials and system definitions. Use Ecotect to visualize shadows, the effect of sun paths, solar radiation, and daylighting analysis, in addition to determining the need for shading devices.

Adrianna earned an Architectural Engineering degree from Milwaukee School of Engineering with specialties in Environmental and Structural Design.

A dedicated technical expert with over 10 years of implementing, supporting and training Autodesk products in the AEC industry, Adrianna has career expertise in structural, mechanical, electrical & plumbing design and supports the AEC industry in Sustainable Building Integration and Analysis.
