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.

Download McGraw-Hill Report | Green BIM

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.

Download McGraw-Hill Report | Measuring BIM Impact On Complex Buildings

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.

4 Bradley Revit Lavatories for ADA Compliant Toilet Room Renovations

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 13, 2016 3:30:00 PM

Over the last month, Revit software and the Bradley Product Revit library proved to quickly & efficiently layout a large number of ADA compliant Toilet-Locker Rooms.

- 4 Hours | 2D AutoCAD to Visually Data-Rich Revit Documentation -

Three (3) separate clients with over 250 locations scheduled for renovation; received plans, elevations & sections, 3D interior perspective views, rendered images and bill of materials for costing their projects.

Four (4) Bradley lavatory decks continuously stood out as the 'Go-To' ADA accessible handwashing systems for these toilet room renovations.

    

Renovating existing toilet rooms to meet ADA requirements can be costly, time consuming, disruptive and in some cases almost impossible. The later, may require renovating and creating a much larger footprint and/or completely relocating the toilet room.

Here are the four (4) Bradley space-saving, prefabricated ADA lavatory design solutions we used for these projects. They are listed in the order that designers selected them for their projects. They helped designers accommodate the 'unknowns' for toilet room renovation projects; while meeting the ADA criteria.

1) Bradley features 2 types of space-saving 3-in-one touchless handwashing systems with the Bradley Advocate & Verge. The Bradley Advocate AV-Series modular 3-in-1, touchless handwashing system provides the smallest footprint for a complete hand washing (water, soap, dryer). Download Advocate AV-Series Revit Models

- Safe Clean Toilet Room Design | Advocate Revit Family Hand Washing System -

The Bradley Verge® Lavatory System with WashBar™ Technology and the respective Revit Verge Model Library are located in the Bradley Revit Library. (1,000 Revit Families)

 The Verge® with exclusive WashBar™ technology is the 2nd all-in-one handwashing system.

The integrated design of the Verge basin in Evero® natural quartz material and clean + rinse + dry functionality housed in the new single piece WashBar create an attractive intuitive space for handwashing. The Verge with the patented WashBar provides a completely touchless handwashing experience in a sleek and engaging design.

 

2) The Bradley Verge L-Series Lavatory System has less depth than other Bradley Lavatory systems. This lavatory also meets the ANSI Enhanced Reach range. Download Verge L-Series Revit Models

 

3) The Bradley ELX-Express Lavatory System is modular but has a shorter deck. For example, a 2-station ELX is 55" long, compared to the Verge L-Series, which is 60" long.  Download ELX Revit Models

 

4) The patented, multi-height Bradley Frequency Lavatory System comfortably provides hand-washing access for adults, children, and those with disabilities. 

The convex (higher) station provides a more ergonomically correct position for able-bodied users while the concave (lower) stations can be mounted to meet ADA or TAS guidelines. Download Frequency Revit Models

Bradley prefabricated lavatory systems can assist with minimizing the interior demolition costs; while providing labor savings with an "out-of-the-box & install" ADA compliant hand washing system. This proves to be ideal for organizations' that have multiple renovation projects; with a multitude unknown floor plan conditions.

Green Sustainable Savings: Water, Paper, Recycled Material & Space

The Advocate AV-Series hand-washing system provides each user a hands-free touch-less hand-washing space; complete with soap, water and integrated hand-drying.

http://youtu.be/KpLa1ZsrwcM

Advocate Serves as Key Component to Safer-Cleaner Toilet Room Design

The distance that separates the hand-washing area and from the hand-drying area; creates a major liability (risk) from a wet slippery floor for users within a toilet room design. The Advocate's hand-drying system is fully integrated with the hand-washing basin to minimize or eliminate water dripping onto the floor. Providing both a safer and cleaner toilet room design.
