There are many researches to make low-energy building. Lots of them focus on facility systems and insulation performance of building materials. However, not only systematic solutions but also approaches in early design stages are important to reduce energy consumption. Using BIM(Building Information Modelling) is considered as an effective and efficient way to simulate building energy and decide alternatives than traditional energy simulation because BIM based energy simulation makes to reduce much time for energy modeling. This study focuses on development of optimized geometry for super tall office buildings in Seoul, Korea. Specifically, length to width ratio and building orientation are main topics of this study because these two topics are the most basic and preceding factors deciding mass design. In this study, Revit MEP 2011 and Ecotect Analysis 2011 are used to make case models and calculate energy load in early design stages. Energy properties of material abide by Korean Standards for Energy Conservation in Building, Korean Guideline for Energy Conservation in Public Office and ASHRAE Standard in USA. This study presents best length to width ratio of plan and optimized orientation by evaluating the case models. Furthermore, this study suggests what should be considered for each case to decrease energy load.

The construction industry consists of various and massive architectural information as an architectural process includes a variety of design stages with cooperation of many disciplines. A Building Information Modeling (BIM) serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle from inception onward. building SMART has developed Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) standard for interoperability of BIM based information. Several software tools are already IFC-compliant. However, there are a lot of problems related to efficient interoperability of software owing to the lack of guide regarding the software usage and insufficiency IFC interfaces of software. The purpose of this study is to suggest efficient IFC support interface development methodologies of existing IFC certified software. The scope of this study is interoperability test for open BIM based quality assurance. To achieve this purpose, the authors have classified subject of open BIM based quality assurance and investigated IFC certification process and certified software. In addition, the authors have exported and imported via IFC files using different IFC interfaces in the software for interoperability of architectural objects and their properties. Finally, the authors have suggested IFC support interface development methodologies and hereafter direction for efficient interoperability of IFC certified software based on open BIM.

With the rising social interest in the sustainable life, demands are growing for Hanok, as a viable alternative to modernized architecture of Western origin. However, even Hanok is gaining popularity among the general public, its design and construction are still a minor practice. Aiming to build an information system of Hanok, this research proposes a new design process for traditional architecture, utilizing a parametric design methodology. This process, based on the understanding of tectonic joints and spatial composition of our traditional architecture, defines a parametric relationship among the structural elements that compose Hanok. The research uses Gehry Technologies' Digital Project and Autodesk Revit Architecture to apply a concurrent parametric design methodology, approaching the project in both bottom-up and top-down to present a new design process for Hanok elements.

Construction industries worldwide have moved to Building Information Modeling environment in conjunction with IT technology progress. Korean domestic construction market is in the midst of enthusiastically adopting BIM technique and the public sectors try to apply the method to their projects. Difficulties have been introduced, however, in doing so mainly due to the complexity in reflecting the distinctions of the public cost estimate requirements to BIM modeling. The main objective of this study is to propose four kinds of BIM property information modeling methodologies which would be used in the quantity surveys of the public construction projects. To evaluate the applicability of the suggested modeling methods, the research performed a case study.

The existing approaches to freeform building construction cause many problems. However, recent BIM technique development based on parametric modeling method and improvement of freeform materials manufacturing technology using IT technology encouraged many advanced countries to try experimental projects. Thus, laser scanning technique is in the limelight as a new alternative in the field of freeform building construction and inspection. This study selected a domestic small freeform building and practiced laser scanning and as-planned modeling by using Reverse Engineering. Then each deviation was comparatively analyzed through figures which extracted data by numerically analyzing the newly modeled as-built and Excel spread sheet. Through the process, limits and follow-up research subjects are discussed as well.

A variety of BIM libraries are required to apply BIM(Building Information Modeling) software and generate BIM data. However, enterprises are establishing their own libraries using BIM tools, the drawbacks are that these libraries are not open to other users, or they just can be used in some software packages. If IFC(Industry Foundation Classes), the standard format of open BIM, can be applied, the BIM library can be applied in all the BIM software packages. Although the enterprises can collaborate using IFC standard, it is difficult to represent all the property information of the construction materials by IFC. IFD(International Framework for Dictionaries) is used to solve these problems and add the property information of the construction materials easily. Therefore, Open RIM-based library needs to be developed using IFD. In this research, the development and application of BIM library and IFD in domestic and foreign countries were investigated and analyzed, and Open BIM-based IFD scenario was proposed for using, and finally by applying an IFD method, the IFD data was added within an IFC model. Consequently, Open BIM-based library can be extended with rich, formal, and semantic descriptions and enhance data interoperability among BIM software packages adopting Open BIM standard format, by applying the IFD.

As the seriousness of environmental pollution being on a rise, a low carbon and environment-friendly design for energy efficiency has been issued. With respect to energy in the construction industry, an adoption of BIM which is possible for the various energy performance assessments in the early design phase has been actively working on. In the most cases of energy performance assessment, the data compatibility from the lack of standard software and format became a problem and the improvement for data compatibility system has been needed. This study is to develop the IFC based IDF converter as a middleware which connects between BIM software and energy analysis software. For the building energy performance assessment, Energy Plus and IFC are selected for the standard energy analysis software and its file format. Parameters are organized by steps and the integrated material library is built so it is trying to reduce the existing problem of energy software interface as much as possible. The development of IDF Converter will promote the spread of related fields with increasing the BIM standard and the utilization of energy performance assessment.
