Description

Though they are rarely discussed in the same book, building information modelling (BIM) and sustainable design have a lot in common: both are changing the way architects think about the buildings they design, and both have been considered more relevant to large projects than small. In this groundbreaking guide, Francois Levy demonstrates that sustainable design has an even greater relative impact on small-building performance than large, and that BIM's well-known efficiencies lower overall costs at any scale and can be easily applied to sustainable design. Using real-world examples, this practical desktop resource presents proven methods for using BIM to deal with such essentail sustainability issues as natural ventilation for cooling, passive solar heating, and more. It places particular emphasis on using BIM-enabled quantitative analysis to evaluate design alternatives early in the design process, when problems can be corrrected and architecture can be optimized easily and at little cost.
