Building Energy Performance Analysis of an Academic Building Using IFC BIM-Based Methodology
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses the potential to use an Industry Foundation Classes (IFC)/Building Information Modelling (BIM) based method to undertake Building Energy Performance analysis of an academic building. BIM/IFC based methodology provides a mechanism for providing quick and cost-effective feedback to building users. The paper discusses the need for IFC and BIM-based analysis of existing buildings. A case study of Building Energy Performance Analysis of an academic building is presented with a detailed discussion on various interventions undertaken to calibrate the model. The paper concludes that BIM/IFC based approaches provide a feasible alternative to conduct energy analysis of existing buildings provided various correlations are built into the model.
