BIM + BEM: Joint Meeting with RoMBIS

BIM + BEM: Joint Meeting with RoMBIS

The collaborative process between designers creating a BIM (Building Information Model) and engineers providing performance analysis via a Building Energy Model (BEM) is challenging! Designing, iterating, analyzing, and revising takes time, and could possibly be a smoother process.

The AEC industry mostly relies on stand alone performance simulation tools that require the creation of throwaway, purpose built models for analysis only. Is there a better way to create sustainable buildings, and achieve energy reduction goals without requiring model duplication and redefinition?

This round table discussion will provide a bit of background (and detail too!) focused on approaches to overcome model collaboration issues. We will focus on the BIM to energy model process, as well as BIM to daylight simulations. Note that we hope to get into specific plug-ins and tools (for instance, ElumTools for day and artificial lighting analysis).

This is a joint meeting between SIMClub and the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society (RoMBIS) so that both points of view (the designer, and the engineer) will be represented - to hopefully point towards successful workflows you can bring into your practice!
