Description

It has been generally perceived that decision-making processes for implementing sustainable solutions to building elements should be in design and pre-construction phases. This perception hinders the transformation of current non-sustainable buildings into sustainable ones. It has been realized that retrofitting existing buildings can be more beneficial in terms of time and cost compared to new construction. This study aims to show that implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for energy analysis improves the retrofit planning process. This study explains that in practice, BIM tools provide significant opportunities for creation of Building Energy Modeling (BEM); and the outputs of BEM analysis can be readily used in selection of energy efficiency measures. The case study approach is used in this study. Accordingly, 3D energy models of the Istanbul Grand Airport Project have been created. A heuristic optimization depicts a clear picture of why it is necessary to incentivize transforming BIM to BEM for decision-making processes of retrofitting. Correspondingly, the study findings show that BIM implementations can provide cost and time savings for energy analysis practices.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) Implementation for Sustainability Analysis: A Mega Airport Project Case Study

Syracuse, NY

It has been generally perceived that decision-making processes for implementing sustainable solutions to building elements should be in design and pre-construction phases.
