Autodesk and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) are committed to a future where design process and technology are integrated in support of our common goal: a sustainable tomorrow.
Over the past year, the Project Chicago: Green Building Research team investigated how modeling, analysis, and sustainable validation could converge into an improved design process. See how an instant and interactive means to evaluate innovation, water, energy, indoor environmental quality, and carbon footprint elements could give designers an immediate sense of the results of different design scenarios.
Using scenarios from BNIM Architects’ Lewis and Clark State Office Building in Missouri, a research team of experts developed alternative concepts for sustainable design environments and studied their impact on the design process. This video showing the results of this research suggests a compelling future.
Key to this eco-friendly building effort is the integrated process known as building information modeling (BIM), an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction, and into operations.
