Development of a Method Using BIM Technology to Determine the Utility Bill and Total Cost of Ownership of a Single-family Home
MetadataShow full item record
Building Information Modeling (BIM) Technology has been around for several years and has proven to be very helpful in aiding engineers, architects, and contractors with their projects. BIM is a set of computer programs that work together by sharing information and allowing the user to see their building in 3D, and gain information on scheduling, cost estimates, design problems, material selection, and much more. Every project is different and requires BIM Technology to be used in a different way. By creating a method to establish the utility bills and the mortgage of a single family home, users will be able to know which programs to use and how to input their information. This method will allow architects and builders more time to concentrate on the design of the home and will allow clients to make appropriate changes to the home to reflect their ideal utility bill and mortgage before the home is built.
