Guide to Sustainable Design for Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Renovation

  • Existing Conditions
    Renovating or retrofitting buildings for energy efficiency begins with understanding today’s existing conditions. Learn how BIM can help to quickly capture and analyze existing building performance.
  • Preliminary Analysis
    During a renovation or retrofit project, use a building energy model to quickly and accurately perform initial energy analysis; compare results to current building performance.
  • Detailed Analysis
    During detailed analysis of a renovation or retrofit, consider energy efficient programs to reach financial and performance goals. Use BIM to analyze and inform ways to improve.
  • Implementation
    During a renovation or retrofit project, realize cost savings and faster ROI through better predictability, shorter project schedules, and fewer errors during construction.
  • Operate & Maintain
    Explore sustainable design principles for commissioning, operating, and reselling cost-effective, energy-efficient buildings and infrastructure.
