Practice Integrated Sustainable Design with BIMMeet the challenge of integrating Building Information Modeling and sustainability with this in-depth guide, which pairs these two revolutionary movements to create environmentally friendly design through a streamlined process. Written by an award-winning team that has gone beyond theory to lead the implementation of Green BIM projects, this comprehensive reference features practical strategies, techniques, and real-world expertise so that you can create sustainable BIM projects, no matter what their scale. From basic concepts, to sophisticated test methodologies, to improved workflows, this timely book offers a wealth of information you can implement right away.Learn why BIM is an important tool for sustainabilityUnderstand when and how to evaluate the effect of green resources on your projectsUnderstand Building Information Modeling, from concept to constructionSee how to best use 3D geometric models instead of 2D CAD designsFactor sustainability into the design process, leveraging free environmental resourcesSet up a BIM model and identify material quantities to figure upstream impact and downstream consequencesTransform traditional processes into new workflows that integrate the entire design team and emphasize green solutions from the start
