BIM: Building Information Model BSM: Building Simulation Model GSA: General Services Administration IDF: Input Data File for Energy Plus

By Paola Sanguinetti, Charles Eastman and Godfried Augenbroe


This paper presents the development of an automated energy analysis for GSA and the results of a case study comparing two courthouse design options in the Preliminary Concept Design stage. The purpose of this study is to understand the issues around a BIM-driven concept design process that integrates building simulation for design evaluation. The study is developed in two phases: 1) generating a Building Simulation Model (BSM) based on a Building Information Model (BIM); 2) conducting sensitivity analyses to evaluate variability when comparing two design options using building simulation
