Format: Paperback
The best book for anyone wants to integrate BIM and Sustainability in their work practice, mainly designers.
Good for both students and professionals. a step by step procedure to achieve Green Design using BIM technology, with real life examples, procedures, calculations, etc...
The main program discussed is Autodesks's Revit, wish they used more than one application.

I hesitate to give this book a negative review because I think the subject matter is extremely important. Both BIM and Sustainable Design are the future of architecture and there is still enormous potential to create synergies between the two, using the power of BIM to create more sustainable solutions.

However, I was personally disappointed by the actual content of this book and ended up returning it. Amazon was nice enough to refund it no questions asked, so I feel like I owe them some explanation. For me, there was very little new, practical information on how to actually integrate BIM and Sustainable Design.

The first section discusses the history of Sustainable Design (going back to the pyramids of Egypt) and answers basic questions like what is sustainable design, why is it important, what is LEED, etc. If you have no experience whatsoever with sustainable design, you might find this interesting. If you have even a moderate level of knowledge of sustainable design (as most architects today do) there is no new information here.

The second section discusses what BIM is, how it works, and why it is important. Again, if you have never heard of BIM this might be news to you. If you have already been working in BIM for even a couple of months, you will probably skip over this section, too.

Then there's a section on Integrated Design. It's an important topic and a growing field of interest in sustainable design, but there's no practical, hands-on information on how to use BIM in Integrated Design.

What little practical information on using BIM there is doesn't begin until about page 127 and it is disappointing.

I took the author's class through Boston Arch College. Good class, and the book gives good insights on how to parametrically design with sustainability in mind. Bravo.
