BIM ANALYTICS: performance based design based on simulation and aided by building information technology.
“A BIM [building information model] is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its lifecycle from inception onward."
“In the United States, buildings account for
36 percent of total energy use and 65 percent of electricity consumption
30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions
30 percent of raw materials use
