Addresses the urgent need for enhanced sustainable practices, reduced embodied carbon and CO2 emissions in the AECO and manufacturing industries

Nashua, NH, February 20, 2024 – Symetri, part of Addnode Group, and a leading global provider of design and engineering technology solutions and consultancy services, announces the launch of a specialized solution to enhance sustainability and energy efficiency for the architecture, engineering, construction, owner (AECO) and manufacturing industries. In line with the company’s long-standing dedication to sustainability, Naviate Zero is an innovative Autodesk Revit add-on set that empowers designers and engineers to calculate emissions, make informed, eco-conscious decisions directly within the Revit platform and use the data in full lifecycle assessments.

The building industry currently contributes to 39% of annual CO2 emissions, with embodied carbon accounting for 11% of global annual emissions. Addressing these environmental challenges, Naviate Zero seeks to mitigate the impact by focusing on the early stages of a building's life cycle. By emphasizing the importance of design and material selection and providing sustainability-focused design assistance and energy simulation capabilities, Naviate Zero enables architects to make choices that have significant immediate and lasting environmental benefits.

"At Symetri, our purpose is to inspire and enable people to work smarter for a better future,” said Mikko Viertola, CTO at Symetri. “Acknowledging the environmental impact within our clients' industries, we recognized the responsibility and identified an opportunity to make a positive contribution. The vision evolved to empower individuals to make well-informed, sustainably responsible decisions and has materialized now through Naviate Zero, a platform that integrates reliable data to facilitate informed decision-making in sustainable design and construction."

Michael DeLacey, CEO at Symetri US, added, "By leveraging digital workflows and advanced technologies, we enable organizations to adopt strategies to achieve net-zero targets, reduce waste, and improve energy efficiency. With Naviate Zero, professionals in the AECO industry can optimize their building designs to minimize environmental impact, reduce long-term operational costs, and comply with green building standards.”

Naviate Zero leverages Symetri’s strategic partnership with One Click LCA, the global leading platform for lifecycle assessment, environmental product declaration, and sustainability. By utilizing One Click LCA's extensive databases, Naviate Zero provides architects and designers direct access to global building material data, elevating the standards of sustainability in the building industry.

To support the product’s introduction, Symetri is hosting an informative webinar on Monday, February 26 with a demonstration of Naviate Zero, illustrating how users can take advantage of its sustainable capabilities and processes directly in Revit.
