I'm still trying to figure out exactly what this is. I don't think their BIM vs BIM IQ comparison chart is completely accurate. Also, are they selling a service, software, engineering or what?
It looks like a mashup of a bunch of things we already have. Very odd indeed.
BIM IQ® exclusively from Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope BIM vs. BIM IQ
The building envelope company. While other manufacturers are jumping on the building envelope bandwagon, we are once again redefining it. And we’ve more than put our money where our mouth is with significant investments in revolutionary products, ground-breaking BIM technologies and better ways to close a building’s envelope. But we haven’t stopped there—only Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™ partnered with Columbia University’s School of Architecture to create a think-tank of visionaries in the fields of architecture, engineering, construction and technology. Their sole purpose? To study the construction process and recommend ways to make it more efficient. Like an envelope made from a single piece of paper, we approach the building envelope the same way. The future of building envelopes is here.

Change the glass color or mullion design—no waiting
While BIM IQ® is a powerful design tool, its real beauty lies beneath the surface. Change the mullion design or glass selection—BIM IQ® calculates the performance data from that change—no waiting.
the performance data—in real time.
|When a change is made, BIM IQ®’s energy analytics tool calculates the energy data requested with that change|
|When the glass selection is changed—BIM IQ®calculates the exact amount of available daylight associated with that glass selection|
|Thermal calculations are made based on your design change in real time|
