Sustainability for the Built Environment.

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, enhanced by analytical insights, are making it easier than ever to take sustainability concerns into account in building projects. With advanced simulation tools and expert sustainability consulting, we offer comprehensive analyses across a project's entire lifecycle. Our services translate complex data into actionable metrics and visual insights, facilitating client discussions and guiding design decision-making.
