Lifecycle Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Energy Management
May 17, 2012
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Eastern Daylight Time
A building information model (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such, BIM serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility, forming a reliable basis for decisions during the building's lifecycle, from inception onward. One of the most beneficial areas of BIM's application to facility management is its role in energy management.
During I2SL's High-Tech Talk Webinar, "Lifecycle Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Energy Management," participants learned:
- How to populate, validate, and maintain data created during the building design and construction stages.
- How to create BIM for existing buildings.
- How to integrate BIM with building automation systems (BAS) for energy management using open standards or proprietary protocols.
- How to connect BIM/BAS with computerized maintenance management systems, computer-aided facility management, and geographic information systems.
