SSUD70-306: BIM for Environment Sustainability Assessment


This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/ Lean/IPD techniques, working in a collaborative project delivery environment, to not only ensure long term operational phase high-quality energy performance of a facility, but also to consider energy performance aspects of design and construction. Embedded energy impacts of various design decisions are also considered. It is taught in a highly interactive environment. It is dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM IT platforms to make energy-smart decisions during all project phases defined by the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework. The subject allows students the opportunity to engage in a practical exercise, using the BIM framework phases. This exercise focuses on Lean construction and IPD principles, to minimise energy wastage during construction and operational phases of a building project. This subject has been designed as a micro-credentialed course for the benefit of industry professionals.
