Building Information Modeling (BIM) and High Performance Buildings

I missed this earlier, as it was last week, but I thought it was an interesting event that you should ponder.

Luncheon Briefing
Building Information Modeling (BIM) and High Performance Buildings

At the heart of High Performance Buildings is information. Using common information in the form of a building model for all analysis related to building performance is critical to ensure a holistic, manageable, and verifiable result. Building Information Modeling is focused on eliminating significant amounts of redundant and wasted effort currently embedded in the design, construction, and operations of facilities due to the lack of software interoperability. The beneficiaries of this information range from the designers and construction contractors to facility operations and sustainment all the way through the building life cycle. This briefing is intended to introduce the opportunities that building information modeling can provide to support the overall goal of providing high performance buildings for our country..
