Abstract
This paper presents the results of the investigation into the possibilities for the implementation of a Building Performance Simulation design toolbox during the early stages of façade design, based on the sustainability-open framework. The background and development of the EnergyFacade toolbox will be discussed which has been built on the principles of parametric and associative design as a strategy for operational energy assessment and optimisation.
