The Effect of Using The Bim Material Database On Improving and Developing Sustainability
Recent innovations have created an opportunity for the construction industry to invest in state-of-the-art technologies and adopt new processes. One of these new methods is Building Information Modeling (BIM), which has been developed for the construction industry over the past two decades. By integrating graphical and non-graphical information, it enables the construction industry stakeholders to work together to deliver projects efficiently throughout the life cycle of construction projects. The connection of the building model and the energy analysis tools make it possible to evaluate the energy consumption during the initial phases of the design. This is not possible with traditional 2D tools due to the time required to prepare the relevant input data. The ability to connect the building model to a variety of analytical tools provides an opportunity to improve building quality and sustainability. In this article, we intend to show the impact of the existence of the BIM material database on sustainable improvement and development by reviewing the literature and expert judgement.
