Product Code/ISBN: 9780470239605

Go green with BIM with this timely and up-close look at two of the fastest growing movements in the architecture, engineering and construction industry: sustainable design and building information modeling. Expert authors and professional architects Eddy Krygiel and Bradley Nies have created the ideal reference for AEC professionals wishing to incorporate green practices into their projects.

Green BIM: Successful Sustainable Design with Building Information Modeling begins with an overview of sustainable design and BIM, discussing how the design and construction industry has arrived at a crossroads and why we need to look to new approaches and methodologies to solve the problems we've inherited over the course of time.

Because implementing these methodologies can be drastic changes in your firm's culture and approach to design and delivery, the authors put forth best practices regarding workflow, integrating project teams, and an order of operations approach to sustainable design.

You'll also learn core concepts and gain a deeper understanding of keys to sustainability in building design, touching on:

  • Building envelope
  • Systems
  • Materiality
  • Orientation

Whether you've had experience with sustainable design and BIM or are still a little green, this book will help you advance your practice and move you forward to a more sustainable future!
