Title: Leveraging BIM for Energy Analysis

Instructor: Jessica Miller

Course Description: One of the benefits of using BIM is better communication and collaboration between extended design teams. This class will teach architects and engineers how to work together, using BIM, to easily create an Autodesk® Revit® MEP model that can be optimized for energy analysis. We will present some examples of dos and don'ts for energy modeling and will outline how to detect problems early on in the process. Attendees will learn best practices, workflows and tips for creating models suitable for day lighting analysis with Autodesk Revit AutoCAD® ME. We will also cover solar shading studies, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling, and DOE-2 analysis. In the second portion of the class, we will demonstrate how to create a preliminary energy model with Autodesk Green Building Studio® and eQUEST® and then discuss the results and limitations.
