title The use of simulation to evaluate design options on conceptual mass study phase

summary This paper presents the results of an exploratory study developed with the Autodesk Project Vasari and AutoCAD Civil 3D. Project Vasari was used to evaluate the environmental performance of a low-income housing project. It shows us that the actual site orientation of the project presents poor environmental performance, which could be improved by rotating building in 90 degrees. The AutoCAD Civil 3D was used to evaluate how that rotation should impact on earthmoving. The results showed that the simulations developed, even though having low level of accuracy, provide sufficiently clear information to support decision making on conceptual mass project stage.
