Savings from energy conservation initiatives can be challenging to predict – especially in large buildings that maintain a complex ecosystem of people, processes, and equipment.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) uses software to create a 3D model that includes the building layout, components and subsystems, equipment placement, and other data. The model simulates energy and water usage and predicts consumption while accounting for complex and interdependent data.
While BIM adds some upfront project costs, the increased analytical rigor offers numerous benefits for larger projects:
- Allows evaluation of multiple scenarios prior to construction or building modification
- Enhances ability to plan all aspects of building management, from construction to O&M
- Reduces risk by allowing more careful analysis of project parameters prior to execution
Additionally, BIM may be used to qualify for LEED certification credits and demonstrate ASHRAE compliance.
