This work is the leading guide to architectural design within abuilding information modeling (BIM) workflow, giving thepractitioner a clear procedure when designing climate-loaddominated buildings. The book incorporates new information relatedto BIM, integrated practice, and sustainable design, as wellinformation on how designers can incorporate the latesttechnological tools. Each chapter addresses specific topics, suchas natural ventilation for cooling, passive solar heating,rainwater harvesting and building hydrology, optimizing materialuse and reducing construction waste, and collaborating withconsultants or other building professionals such as engineers andenergy modelers.

From the Back Cover:

The only book focused on BIM strategies for sustainable designin small- and medium-scaled architecture projects

Though they are rarely addressed in the same book, buildinginformation modeling (BIM) and sustainable design have a lot incommon: both are changing the way architects think about thebuildings they design, and both have been considered more relevantto large projects than small. In this groundbreaking guide,François Lévy demonstrates that sustainable design has aneven greater relative impact on small-building performance thanlarge, and that BIM's well-known efficiencies lower overall costsat any scale and can be easily applied to sustainable design. Usingreal-world examples, this practical desktop resource presentsproven methods for using BIM to deal with such essentialsustainability issues as natural ventilation for cooling, passivesolar heating, and more. It places particular emphasis on usingBIM-enabled quantitative analysis to evaluate design alternativesearly in the design process, when problems can be corrected andarchitecture can be optimized easily and at little cost.

In addition, BIM in Small-Scale SustainableDesign:

  • Features case studies of eleven small-scale projects in whichBIM methodologies were applied to sustainable design issues andproblems

  • Addresses critical topics, including site analysis and massinganalysis, solar geometry and daylighting, passive heating andcooling, rainwater harvesting, onsite energy systems, materials andwaste, and much more

  • Surveys leading BIM applications and complementary software

  • Includes a discussion on collaboration with consultants andother software users, such as energy modelers

Complete with coverage of integrated design and other NAAB APRrequirements, BIM in Small-Scale Sustainable Design is amust-have resource for architects, engineers, students, andconstruction professionals involved in sustainable designprojects.
