Objectives: This study aims to identify and assess sustainable design parameters based on the tools and strategies provided by Building Information Modeling (BIM)technology to improve building sustainability. Method: This study idea was applied to one of the Iraqi construction projects in Diyala province, to achieve the aim of this study, we collected real data (CAD drawings, schedule of quantities) by an interview with professional engineers in the construction fields and after this, the project is simulated by using Autodesk Revit 2018 software. Findings: We made analysis and found the results of analysis by using Autodesk Insight360 Cloud added to Revit2018 that illustrate design parameters and its effect on energy use intensity. The use of BIM technology helps designers and architects to identify and assess sustainable design parameters in the early design stage that lead to improving the sustainability of the building. Applications: BIM technology is one of the modern and important technologies in the construction sector. Adopting BIM technology is very useful to develop sustainable buildings in the construction sector.
Keywords: BIM; Autodesk Revit 2018; Autodesk Insight360 cloud; Sustainable design options; Energy use intensity
