Green Building Based on BIM


Background/Objectives: In India BIM will grow by 20% in next few years, for account of environmental parameter and rising demand. Using BIM with sustainable design and green construction techniques including maximizing the conservation of resources is referred as Green BIM. In the present study energy performance of a residential building is analyzed for different locations with software as well as manually. Methods/Statistical Analysis: First of all, building model is designed by using Revit software. After that model is converted in GBS which is one of the most important energy simulation tool integrated with Revit software. The model is located in different locations to study their energy impacts on the whole building. The energy use at different locations of model is concluded that large quantity of energy can be saved during its life cycle, in a well-located building. Therefore, the difference of both overall electricity uses and fuel uses are 35727 kWh & 54870 Therms, respectively. Findings: The combined energy cost saving between the best (New Delhi) and unfavorable (Brasilia, Brazil) is $19143 throughout a 30-year period. This provides a comparison with traditional method and resulted that how building cost affected annually as well as life cycle. Improvement/Applications: It improves the construction quality and reduces the energy use in the building. BIM is a platform which provides some complete and interactive components in a building to create a new type of an energy model.
