BIM Planning Guide for Energy Retrofit Projects
The BIM Planning Guide for Retrofit Projects enables teams to quickly plan a model adoption strategy for energy retrofit projects to enhance success.
While many projects are leveraging BIM to more efficiently develop the architectural design for a building, the wider adoption of modeling (e.g., energy models, daylighting models, and cost models) directly from the architectural design remains limited, especially in small and medium size retrofit projects. This initiative will focus on the identification of model uses that allow analysis tools to be integrated into the delivery process. The BIM Planning Guide methodology will be leveraged to develop a focused BIM Guide for Energy Retrofit Projects, which clearly documents workflows for the applications developed or enhanced by CBEI, as well as others.
