For architecture and engineering offices

Metabuild is the ESG upgrade for your office.

We have developed the world’s most powerful building simulation technology.
 Metabuild is the easiest and fastest way to meet your clients’ climate goals and mitigate ESG risks.

For existing buildings and portfolios:
The intelligent digital twin. With a clear focus on ESG analyses.

In the digital twin, you store ESG-relevant building information and keep it constantly up-to-date – directly in the 3D model. In this way, you do not lose any data and maintain an overview at all times.

For existing buildings and portfolios:
Quickly and easily determine the current energy status of your customers' buildings.

The detailed look at your customers’ buildings. In this analysis, primary energy demand, final energy demand, CO₂ emissions, stranding years and comfort parameters are determined by means of simulations.

For existing buildings and portfolios:
Offer your customers the most cost-efficient refurbishment concepts – thanks to variant studies.

Metabuild is the only provider in the world that can automatically generate and holistically evaluate remediation alternatives.


The results show the most sensible refurbishment measures and their influence on energy demand, CO₂ emissions, stranding times and comfort parameters. Including cost calculation according to DIN 276 and DIN 18960.

For new building projects in phase 0–1:
Generative Design: Achieve first drafts in record time.

With Metabuild, you generate building designs based on urban planning specifications and requirements for the mix of uses. Each generated variant is evaluated in terms of space efficiency and daylighting comfort. Preferred variants can then be refined and evaluated in more detail.


Receive intelligently calculated first drafts. Perfect for further processing by your office. IFC download included.

For new building projects in phase 1–2:
Detailed variant study: time savings and quality enhancement through an intelligent process.

Based on a given design (cubature/floor plans), Metabuild automatically finds the best planning variants for the building envelope, building services and energy supply.


The simulation-based process is based on detailed analyses of energy efficiency, CO₂ emissions, construction costs, operating costs, life cycle costs and comfort parameters.


Profoundly achieve the best planning result for your customers.

Why building simulation?

Planning certainty
Only with simulations is it possible to evaluate the dynamic interactions of architecture, materials, systems, weather data, and building use.
Optimize sustainability
With simulations, you can evaluate whether your design is truly the most sustainable, but also the most cost-efficient solution and within your client's budget.
Evaluate indoor comfort
Simulations are the only way to ensure that your design meets the requirements for daylighting comfort, air quality and thermal comfort.

“The Portfolio analysis with Metabuild is the best way to quickly identify opportunities to add value to your portfolio – with amazing accuracy.”

Insights into the Metabuild platform

Simple modeling

  • Modeling buildings in the browser-based Metabuild platform
  • Full-featured BIM models with focus on simulations
  • intuitive user interface
  • easy use of map and building data from GoogleMaps and OpenStreetMap
  • Convenient input of walls, windows, doors, roofs, etc. including component descriptions

CRREM – stranding year in terms of final energy and CO₂

  • Reliable prediction of stranding events
  • Consideration of CRREM decarbonization pathways for CO₂ and final energy
  • The stranding year shift is shown for remediation variants


Metabuild is an official partner of CRREM and analyzes real estate portfolios according to current CRREM methodology.

Comprehensive energetic evaluation

  • Primary energy demand
  • Final energy demand – incl. breakdown according to heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting
  • specific transmission heat loss
  • Energy consumption
  • Income from photovoltaics and solar thermal energy
  • CO₂ emissions and gray CO₂


The key figures are determined on the basis of dynamic full-year simulations and balancing according to DIN 18599.

Evaluation of the overall portfolio

  • Combine multiple objects into one portfolio
  • Consider deviations of all buildings from EU target values for a given year.
  • Visualize improvements from your planned remediation activities at the portfolio level
  • Keeping an eye on total remediation costs for the entire portfolio

Detailed quantity take-offs and cost calculations

  • Detailed quantity takeoff from the 3D model for each generated rehabilitation variant
  • Renovation costs according to DIN 276
  • Operating costs according to DIN 18960
  • Life cycle costs according to DGNB

Keeping an eye on indoor comfort

  • Daylight comfort according to WELL Standard, LEED and DGNB
  • Air quality according to Eurofins, WELL and LEED
  • Thermal comfort according to ANSI/ASHRAE 55:2010 and EN ISO 7730
