Sustainable BIM with Autodesk Revit and Green Building Studio

By Bill Adams (@blads), Redstack

Whilst Australia’s emission projections have fallen in recent years, a large percentage of greenhouse‐gas emissions
in Australia come from the built environment sector, particularly in the housing market.  

The rise of green building certification systems are visible examples of the building industry's commitment to
sustainable design. The ability to perform accurate whole building energy, water, and carbon emission analyses
early in the design process is essential for sustainable building design.  

In today’s AEC Industry, Owners want top value for their projects. Gone are the days of just asking the Architect /
Building Designer for a set of drawings. Owners now want a complete 3D Model to accompany their final as‐built
set of construction documents. They want a model which contains not just the construction document’s to build
the project but all the rich metadata that is included in the Model; specifically, BIM data for Energy Analysis.  

Why are Owner’s asking for this information? So they can get a full handle on lifecycle costs of their project. They
want to know how much gas, electricity, water, carbon emissions, etc. it will cost to own their building and also
want to find ways to make their building more efficient in usage for the long run.
