Practice Integrated Sustainable Design with BIM

Meet the challenge of integrating Building Information Modeling and sustainability with this in-depth guide, which pairs these two revolutionary movements to create environmentally friendly design through a streamlined process. Written by an award-winning team that has gone beyond theory to lead the implementation of Green BIM projects, this comprehensive reference features practical strategies, techniques, and real-world expertise so that you can create sustainable BIM projects, no matter what their scale. From basic concepts, to sophisticated test methodologies, to improved workflows, this timely book offers a wealth of information you can implement right away.

  • Learn why BIM is an important tool for sustainability

  • Understand when and how to evaluate the effect of green resources on your projects

  • Understand Building Information Modeling, from concept to construction

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 am pretty sure I purchased a new book but the one I received was used with markings in it. Other than that, everything is fine.
