Michaud Cooley Erickson

Eric holds a Bachelors and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Since joining Michaud Cooley Erickson (MCE) in 2014, he has modeled countless designs, as well as, managed multiple software tools to provide information in HVAC system comparison, daylighting analysis, and conceptual fluid dynamics. He regularly coordinates with project managers to provide relevant modeling information which informs design decisions. Eric’s involvement in a project allows us to supply the team with data such as, return on investment (ROI) and life cycle cost analysis; he strives to provide information that assists in making early, informed and confident decisions.



This course outlines when and how modeling brings value to different project design phases. In discussing the different attributes of energy modeling, day lighting, and computational fluid dynamics, we will show the impact it can have in making design decisions. Whether that be a return on investment analysis or a life cycle cost analysis, modeling is a necessary tool for balancing energy efficiency, project cost, and client needs.


  1.      Provide an overview of energy modeling, day lighting, and computational fluid dynamics.
  2.      Outline when and how modeling brings value during difference project design phases.
  3.      Demonstrate the types of results that can be generated through the modeling process.
  4.      Show how to use modeling for design decision making, i.e. return on investment,
    energy efficiency, life cycle cost analysis, etc.
