Increasingly the true value of BIM is becoming clearer to the industry, in that the ultimate outcome is not 3D CAD and coordinated design services, it’s the creation, capture, analysis and sharing of information throughout the design, construction, and operation of an asset. Design teams who get the process right, see the technology fit together […]

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a rapidly emerging technology process that offers the building design, construction, and operations industry with improvements in visualization, analysis, and management. With this great opportunity also comes a knowledge gap for industry professionals. Closing this gap is what George Brown College (GBC) in Toronto set out to accomplish with their new […]

In my journey towards creating perfect energy models with BIM, I came across many online resources from the software companies. But the common theme among those resources were all the things you shouldn’t do in order to facilitate a clean integration. That practice of avoiding errors ended up being a game of whack a mole, […]

The streamlined BIM workflow saves you time by avoiding rework, which can lead to significant soft cost savings during the design process. It’s safe to say that these days’ architects are most likely using a BIM tool for architectural design. But when it comes to collaborating with the engineer or energy modeler with BIM, the […]

Provide quick feedback by managing design updates through the re-integration of BIM for comparative analysis with minimal rework. The benefits of using energy modeling at an early stage is to inform the architectural design and make improvements towards an objectively more energy efficient building. A BIM-integrated energy modeling workflow allows you to make those modifications […]

Build clean models before exporting the gbXML file and avoid integration errors before they happen, yielding predictably good results across many applications. The AEC industry is familiar with creating building loads for systems sizing and then producing energy models with the Performance Rating Method (ASHRAE 90.1 or NECB). Although these project deliverables are typically done independently […]
