Discover a digital climate-analysis tool that mitigates risks and enhances the resilience of your building designs
Our platform offers direct access to wind comfort and safety analysis, thermal comfort, and shadowing analysis. This means you can quickly understand the climate impacts of your proposed building designs from the very start, without incurring budget and timeline overruns.
An easy to use, web-based environmental analysis tool
Orbital Stack’s Thermal Comfort analysis combines wind and solar simulations with climate data to show how outdoor spaces meet usage profiles and indicate patrons’ thermal comfort.
Orbital Stack simulates Wind Comfort conditions and illustrates wind direction and strength for every outdoor space in your design, providing typical wind comfort conditions and scales to guide appropriate use of each space.
Airflow Analysis examines wind speeds and reveals potential issues with usability, comfort, and safety. Climate-scaled wind flow plots and streamlines map winds on a virtual model, providing insights into local directionality and guiding mitigation choices.
Analyze shadows by predicting their general placement according to the season and time of day. Plots are created for each season and time range to show the solar potential as a % for the given period.
