This is pretty cool!
We do a ton of single family homes in our office. I think this may be useful to some of our teams

Dear all,

Are you an architect or analyst who works with HVAC systems? Do you want to see real improvements in the integrated design process? What tools and HVAC-related information would your team benefit from receiving earlier?

The MIT Sustainable Design Lab has been working on new workflows to integrate spatial and performance implications of different HVAC systems earlier in the design process. We've developed a new webform system selector<https://www.cognitoforms.com/sustainabledesignlab/choosingyourhvacsystem> which we encourage you to test as well as a prototype design tool and exercise<https://netzerobuildings.mit.edu/hvac-design>. Comments are very well received.

As we try to improve the integrated design process, we would love to hear more about how you and your firm design and coordinate HVAC systems. To better understand current practices and needs, we developed a brief, fully anonymized, online survey that we cordially invite you to participate in. Please select the appropriate survey for your role:

- Sustainability Analyst<https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bCpPYEcVY7yyrpc>
- Architectural Designer<https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cPdhVOWmfO97Ymq>

If relevant, please also forward this email to other members of your team.

Thank you for your time,

Ali Irani
