BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM)-BASED DESIGN OF ENERGY EFFICIENT BUILDINGS

Journal of KIBIM, volume 2, issue 1, 2012, Pages 1~6
With the increased awareness of energy consumption as well as the environmental impact of building operations, architects, designers and planners are required to place more consideration on sustainability and energy performance of the building. To ensure most of those considerations are reflected in the building performance, critical design decisions should be made by key stakeholders early during the design development stage. The application of BIM during building energy simulations has profoundly improved the energy analysis process and thus this approach has gained momentum. However, despite rapid advances in BIM-based processes, the question still remains how ordinary building stakeholders can perform energy performance analysis, which has previously been conducted predominantly by professionals, to maximize energy efficient building performance. To address this issue, we identified two leading building performance analysis software programs, Energy Plus and IES
), and compared their effectiveness and suitability as BIM-based energy simulation tools. To facilitate this study, we examined a case study on Building Performance Model (BPM) of a single story building with one door, multiple windows on each wall, a slab and a roof. We focused particularly on building energy performance by differing building orientation and window sizes and compared how effectively these two software programs analyzed the performance. We also looked at typical decision-making processes implementing building energy simulation program during the early design stages in the U.S. Finally, conclusions were drawn as to how to conduct BIM-based building energy performance evaluations more efficiently. Suggestions for further avenues of research are also made.

In recent years, building information modeling (BIM) has been an important issue within the architect, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. BIM provides a way to share and exchange semantically rich information about the buildings in order to achieve a successful level of collaboration, communication, and interaction between stakeholders throughout the life cycle of the project. However, despite the recognition of its potential, BIM has not yet been utilized in the construction, operation, and maintenance stages because of the need to reorganize the BIM by reflecting the as-built status of the buildings. In order to improve and increase the use of BIM at all phases of a project, several research efforts are exploring the creation of an as-built BIM that is based on advanced sensors. However, there is a lack of literature and investigation on this research area to date within the domestic AEC industry. The aim of this study is to suggest ways in which BIM can be utilized within the construction, operation, and maintenance stages based on advanced sensors so that it is an approach that might be usefully carried forward. This paper begins by presenting a review of the existing BIM research and achievement in order to determine the limitations of the use of BIM in the domestic AEC industry. Conclusively, this paper suggests a direction for the future applications of BIM and describes how it can benefit from additional research.

This paper showed how to apply BIM technology to customized interior design process(CIDP) in order to reduce the heavy workload of stakeholders who are involved in the customized house project. Recently the customers wanted their living space to make a different from others in the field of interior design in particular, therefore, this dissertation focused on the process of the determination of the interior plan through the communication between clients and workers. This thesis indicated the interior design process with IDEF
in order to show how many kinds of information workers and expected residents made and shared in the each step of CIDP. BIM in the customized interior design procss is useful to correct drawing errors, help customers' decision-making by showing the 3D model for their own house and decrease the heavy workload of workers concerned by using BIM estimating system.

Public construction projects need complex and multi-functional management skill, since the most of public construction projects are comprised of multi-project and mega-projects. In order to effectively manage construction projects, PMIS is widely used. However the majority of the current PMIS have been developed as a single project-oriented business management system. Thus compatibility problems are encountered during the process of integrating the entire systems to manage the multi-complex projects. In addition, the form of orders applying BIM are increased recently, but the research and development of BIM based PMIS are still lacking. In this study, therefore, the functions of PMIS main objectives based on the analysis of PMIS As-Is and To-Be of PMIS, the dual management system utilizing Internet and Intranet will be proposed to integrate the individual PMIS with Integrated Program Management System. Rather than combining commercial BIM tool and PMIS directly, which is the common method of failure, the sequential process model to adopt BIM based PMIS is also explained. Step-by-step development method of BIM based PMIS is suggested to prepare for the activation of BIM technology in the nearest future.
