Web-based Eco-Niwas Samhita design aider tool is a unique, user-friendly, design-Based tool developed to ease the implementation of Residential Building code at design level. This tool has the potential to help the user to devise the different combinations of material assemblies and select the optimized sustainable solutions to meet the compliance for Visual light transmittance (VLT), Openable window to floor area ratio (WFRop), Thermal transmittance of roof (Uroof) and Residential envelope transmittance value (RETV) for affordable housing at preliminary/pre-construction design phase. The tool has been pilot tested and validated for various real-time projects in-line with the Eco-Niwas Samhita 2018 benchmarks. The tool puts to use the database of materials tested at CoE for its thermal properties and enables appropriate selection of building materials to the designer.
