Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that involves creating and using an intelligent 3D model to inform and communicate project decisions.
Design, visualization, simulation, and collaboration provide greater clarity for all stakeholders across the project lifecycle.
Green building is rapidly transforming the design and construction industry. BIM tools can help green building project teams to achieve more sustainable outcomes. These tools provide immediate insight into how design decisions impact building performance. BIM also encourages an integrated design process – which consists in continual, organized collaboration among all players.
The industry perceives great value in using BIM on green project. Green BIM is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years, with a steep growth expected in the use of energy performance simulations.
