The achievement of zero-carbon buildings requires monitoring and sharing the information of building performance from the time the building is handed over to occupants. Therefore, there is a need for facilitate this sharing of information among the stakeholders and supply chain. It becomes evident that BIM technology pioneers the discipline of sharing accurate information.
Despite the growing interest in using BIM in construction, BIM technology has not been fully utilised in the current procurement strategies. Practical implementations of BIM are mostly during the design and construction stage. There is limited research that links knowledge gained from energy practices and BIM models to improve the overall operations and energy efficiency of buildings.
This feasibility study identified the key operational and carbon performance variables for Scottish public buildings needed for monitoring building performance, which are required to adopt BIM approach for better informing the stakeholders on the performance. This outcome will help in developing a smarter procurement strategy based on consistent information to be shared by all stakeholders.
The Scottish economy will benefit from the proposed BIM-driven procurement as a smarter approach for the Government client to cope with the low carbon economy where reductions in operational costs and carbon emissions are targeted.
This webinar will present the outcomes of this recent study
