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 over one intensive of two days duration and one of one day duration. The two day intensive 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 one day intensive affords students the opportunity to engage in a practical exercise, using the BIM framework phases. This exercise has a focus 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.

1. Understand the similarities and differences between the mainstream BIM-based environmental sustainability analysis platforms such as IES-VE, Insight and AECOsim.
2. Describe the use of environmental sustainability analysis platforms in the lifecycle stages of ‘green’ buildings.
3. Describe the main BIM functionalities for environmental sustainability analysis including energy performance analyses, carbon emission analyses, solar radiation and lighting analyses, natural ventilation system analyses, water usage analyses, acoustics analyses and thermal comfort analyses.
4. Understand how BIM could potentially be used to automate green building certification process under various green building certification schemes such as LEED, Green Star and BREEM.
5. Understand the main issues and the associated future development trends of BIM-based environmental sustainability analyses.
