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

Abstract

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
