Entreprises

  • ALTO Ingenierie - Project Engineer - Building Simulation Expert

    2008 - maintenant Responsible for the growth of the CFD business (Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis) within the Building Simulation and Modelling Group:
    > developing and maintaining an in-house assessment tool for pedestrian wind comfort
    > carrying out detailed analysis for HVAC systems design by modelling internal air flows

    Incorporating sustainability approaches into building design according to the standards of French environmental assessment method (HQE®):
    > optimisation of the building envelope in order to reduce the loads according to the local climate (wind conditions, solar gain, natural daylight autonomy, glare analysis, natural ventilation potential)
    > implementation of appropriate energetic concepts validated by means of dynamic thermal and energy use modelling
    > evaluation of renewable energy sources available on-site (geothermal heat, solar energy, wind power)

    Liaise with architects and clients during the building design process to define the overall energy strategy, to improve the thermal performance as well as quality comfort, and then select suitable passive or active technical systems

    Writing business proposals for project work, delivering technical presentations and contractual reports.
