cove.tool platform





cove.tool is fighting climate change by helping architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and building product manufacturers use data-driven design through automation and cost optimization. We lead by example by making science and transparency central while pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

Sustainable Building Design

Incorporating sustainable design and construction practices requires hard work, determination, and forward-thinking.

Reducing carbon emissions in the building industry requires effort from all the three stakeholders involved: owners to drive demand, architects to design for the demand, and contractors to execute design in a climate-conscious manner. Buildings account for 40% of those carbon emissions and 76% of electricity use in the United States. If we reduce building energy usage, we join the fight against climate change.

Net Zero Buildings & Technology

The AEC industry has the potential to make a significant positive impact on the environment, simply by incorporating sustainability strategies into their architecture and engineering workflows. 

Data-driven workflows and analytical tools are making it easier than ever to take sustainability concerns into account in buildings, with powerful digital tools that provide in-depth analyses of a project for its entire lifecycle, and easy-to-use tools that provide quick metrics and graphical representations of information to drive client discussions and design decision-making.

How does cove.tool help?

In just 6 years, buildings designed with cove.tool have offset over 37 million tonnes of CO2

Architects, engineers, contractors, and developers start using cove.tool for early-stage energy analysis all the way to compliance level carbon studies, 2D/3D design, and HVAC design. They skillfully select the lowest-cost and highest-performance material components for new construction and renovations. Teams use our patented machine learning to effortlessly look through thousands of options.
