About the software

Many different criteria must be balanced in order to provide high quality, comfortable buildings that also comply with building regulations, minimise upfront costs to the client, optimise on-going energy costs and reduce environmental impact.

DesignBuilder, a completely modular software solution, includes a core 3D modeller and 11 modules that combine to provide detailed analysis for any building. Every module fully integrates with its counterparts, so you can pick individual modules or choose one of our packages.

Below are the most popular module combinations in our software packages for each user class. The modules can be purchased separately, or you can buy a site network licence with any combination. For more information click on the module’s name or the job function.
