Neighborhood- and building- level assessments in Dynamic-SIM Workbench

Dynamic Sustainability Information Modeling (Dynamic-SIM) Workbench allows seamless analysis across two levels — the neighborhood- and building- levels. At the neighborhood level, users will be able to import the features (exported from GIS layers), and other pertinent information overlaid on

The Hierarchy of Energy in Architecture: Emergy Analysis (Book)

The laws of thermodynamics—and their implications for architecture—have not been fully integrated into architectural design. Architecture and building science too often remain constrained by linear concepts and methodologies regarding energy that occlude significant quantities and qualities of energy. The Hierarchy

Comparison of Energy-based Indicators used in LCA Tools

Traditionally, building rating systems focused on, among others, energy used during operational stage. Recently, there is a strong push by these rating systems to include the life cycle energy use of buildings, particularly using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), by offering

Dynamic- Building Information Modeling (Dynamic-BIM) Workbench

What is vastly missing is the “connecting glue” that seamlessly integrates Building Information Modeling (BIM), and energy and environmental analyses that supports building stakeholders to design, engineer, construction, and maintain buildings such they seek self-sustenance to prevail in competition with
