    Default Revit to LEED

    I was wondering if anyone out there used there Revit model to produce LEED documentation whether through out-of-the-box Revit or plugins such as Green Building Studio, Ecotect, IES VE or another.
    What were you able to extract from your model?
    and was it successful?

    Cool Re: Revit to LEED

    I believe that thru an export to IFC format, the other apps you mention can
    make analysis from the BIM model. There is also a specific language for green building studio called "gbxml" which is used in the web-based green building studio environment.

    Check out this website:

    hope that points you in the right direction.

    Might be of general interest (LEED specifically is mainly a US thing at present)...

    I attended a webinar on Ecotect a few days ago and the Autodesk presenter mentioned that he has set up a blog, also that he is mainly a Revit user, so there is a hope that more Revit-related information in this context may appear (he is on holiday this week):

    Yo ws,
    If Revit functionality is extended to cover off full LEED it would be a good thing overall, however, I hope its never implemented in NZ. I would dread that event.
    Might be good for another thread this...

    On a related note, IES has been promising a BREEAM plug-in for RAC for a while now... which would be interesting to see exactly what information can be extracted from a model that is useful for BREEAM.

    I wondered about BREEAM vs LEED and found this article which summarises the two quite neatly

    ...and I see BRE from the UK and CSTB in France have recently agreed to develop a common single rating tool for environmental assessment certification across Europe...

    Hello,
    I am wandering what is the most efficient way to draw an outline and take off the areas for a LEED 8.2 credit Views for 90% of space in Revit? What is the most efficient way?
    Thanks in advance
