BIM-Revit Supporting Roles for Sustainable Design+Construction Processes

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 26, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Bradley BIM has more than 15 McGraw-Hill SmartMarket Reports (2007-2015) available for download; including 'Green BIM'.

The majority of these surveys demonstrate how BIM processes contribute as a core integration tool for sustainable design processes.

BIM authoring software packages; like (Revit, AECOsim, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) create the BIM facility project file. Third-party Add-On software applications provide niche design & analysis functionality; that is not typically included in the out-of-the box BIM software. 

So...how is this helpful?

The cost to design, build and maintain large, complex facilities is significant. Virtually simulating a building's energy performance; during the desing process is crucial to reducing its projected energy costs. Integrating BIM processes is reducing the construction time, product waste, labor & energy costs to buid it.

Architects, engineers, contractors and facility owners are adding design + engineering functionality to their BIM authoring software; via BIM Add-On applications. These apps provide BIM software with the ability to simulate the seasonal energy consumption of a facility over the building's lifecycle.

BIM Add-On software components integrate with the designers' whole building facility model. Thereby, helping them to evaluate, analyze, design and simulate specific facility performance factors --prior to construction and occupancy.

Examples of BIM \ BIM Add-On Apps Assisting w/Sustainable Design Process

  1. Building Certification: BIM auto-collects & reports sustainable documentation

  2. Green Product Selection: BIM Automated Specification Writing Systems

  3. BIM MEP: Building Energy Performance Modeling Simulations

  4. Visualization: Interior Daylighting and Shadow Studies

  5. Green Material Volume Take-Off: New Construction, Demolition Construction Waste

  6. BIM MEP: Water \ Waste Systems Consumption, Calculations & Flow Analysis

  7. HVAC Load Analysis: Optimizing Heating and Cooling Loads & Zones

  8. Lighting | Evaluate Electrical Consumption & Light Coverage Verification

  9. Analyze & Simulate the Solar (Heat) Gain from a Building's Site Orientation

  10. BIM for Prefabrication: Utilizes Lean & Green Construction (Manufacturing) Processes

  11. Green BIM Site Design Studies calculate green space & drainage areas, parking lot design and inventory plantings for landscape maintenance.

Greenbuild | Pedia-Pod Modular Pediatric Patient Unit

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Nov 17, 2013 9:19:11 AM

The Pedia-Pod -- A state of the art pediatric building module will be completely constructed off site and installed at Greenbuild 2013. Built in collaboration with BD&C, this fully functional module will be displayed at this year’s Greenbuild conference in Philadelphia, showcasing the greener way to build with Modular Construction.

Building Design + Construction (BD+C) provides the background information behind 'Pedia-Pod, 'BD+C's modular pediatric patient unit at Greenbuild:
