Reduction of energy consumption thanks to THE DIGITAL BIM MODEL

The current situation means that energy management requires an even more innovative strategy.


The BIM implementation of the existing building makes it possible to anticipate its thermal, acoustic or energy behavior. The starting point of any BIM project is the production of a digital model of the building in question. This serves as a collaborative support for all trades working throughout the life cycle of the building. Buildings contribute a significant amount of overconsumption of electricity and carbon emissions. These structures emit up to 33% of greenhouse gas emissions through energy consumption. BIM maintenance and management software reduce that number in every aspect. Whether it is energy waste, production or use, BIM addresses every step. Contractors can reduce their on-site emissions with a more energy-efficient plan. But above all, the BIM model has the capacity to store key building information. This data is varied and can contain the types of materials that make up a wall, the results of the initial energy calculations or even information related to the maintenance of the building, such as for example the date and the result of the overhaul of the boilers. The emergence of connected objects is also a victory for the intelligence of constructions (“Smart Buildings”) whose data can be integrated into the 3D model. With the key to a better sharing of information. Finally, the digital model proves to be an excellent decision-making tool, for example as a support for carrying out thermal insulation simulations before work, resulting in significant possible savings.

Improved maintenance BIM design is part of the construction process. It shows how long power systems can last and how their performance should hold up. However, other BIM data information sheds light on maintenance needs. Maintenance is essential because an inefficient or damaged system can waste energy and, therefore, money. The most durable power options will require updates to keep working properly. Energy management solutions. They must manage:

- Deployment for offices, housing sites, - Portal for monitoring consumption and charges for sustainable development. - Configurable dashboard allowing energy measurement and management. - IoT data monitoring – Smart Meters for heating, domestic hot/cold water usage, lighting,

indoor/outdoor temperature, etc. - Data acquisition from multiple sources: smart meters, real time connections, Web API,

Web Services, FTP
