Sustainability and BIM

By integrating BIM workflow, many benefits are gained especially in sustainability.
Through collaboration and integrated analysis and information, BIM carries the potential to deliver faster construction with less material waste in a more innovative, cost-effective building process.

Sustainable benefits of BIM may include:   

  • Ability to measure and analyze performance of the building, even in early phases of design    
  • Ability to more easily evaluate green buildings according to local standards (e.g. BREEAM, LEED)   
  • Faster, more efficient LCA evaluation 
  • Increased digital collaboration means less paper waste 
  • Ability to more accurately measure material quantities for less material waste  
  • Improved, earlier collaboration for less errors and material waste during construction  
  • Improved building performance and monitoring over the entire lifecycle of the building
