BuildWind is an engineering company based in Brussels, Belgium. We are experts in the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and heat transfer simulation to building and urban design. The BuildWind project started in 2016. For about 2 years, a small, dynamic team of skilled and experienced engineers focused on developing, adapting and validating numerical models and simulation tools for environmental and architectural computational fluid dynamics. In January 2018, BuildWind has been incorporated as a Belgian limited liability company (SPRL).
Computational Fluid Dynamics provides the most detailed and accurate approach to simulate the aerodynamics and heat transfer for building and urban design. CFD can test new ideas as well as existing buildings, help detect problems and improve performance to increase comfort, reduce energy consumption, emissions and running costs.
Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) design include wind loads calculation, pedestrian wind comfort and safety studies, site planning, outdoor air quality assessment, simulation of Heat Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), indoor air quality assessment, fire and smoke simulation for safety studies.
What sets us apart
Born to innovate
Simulation technology and building design requirements are constantly evolving. At BuildWind, we devote most of our resources to the development, implementation and validation of innovative ideas and technologies. Our background in academic research also gives us access to many experts and we can often provide a link between industrial and academic partners.
BuildWind’s activity is focused on fluid dynamics and heat transfer simulation for architectural and environmental applications only. So we can make sure our tools are optimized and our engineers are trained for this very specific field.
We constantly monitor the development of our projects and we take great care in having an excellent communication with our partners, so that we can guarantee we deliver projects on time, on budget and providing the high-value that we promised.
BuildWind is a dynamic and efficient company. This translates into low indirect costs, which allow us to offer excellent value for money to our clients.
