BIM Energy Automation

Challenge

  • Manual calculations and modifications to design to accommodate results based on analysis.
  • Experience required to manipulate map data to generate required layout.
  • Less optimized calculations.

Solution

  • Energy calculation automation based on Passive house design principles.
  • Automatic modification of a Revit model based on the energy calculation results.
  • Calculation of shading vectors for various weather stations using predefined NSRDB weather data./li>
  • Building of roof layout automation based on data from Pictometry Java API including automatic detection of RTU and obstructions.
  • Solar panel layout automation based on roof layout, obstacles and shadow area.

Business Benefits

  • Design cycle time reduced by 50%.
  • Optimized design solution.
  • Faster design iterations.
