This paper presents an overview of the use of building simulation in a private consultancy in New Zealand. The current state of the industry is outlined before the specific practice is introduced. The software and some office protocols are described. Several case studies are then examined to demonstrate how simulation has fit in with the design process. Issues currently facing the industry, and their likely effect in the future, are then discussed.
