BIM 4 Analysis

Deliver Value, Cost and Carbon Improvement on every project.

Why BIM?

BIM is moving the industry from an analogue age to a digital one. BIM encapsulates a code of practice that brings a standardised approach and classification to the built environment, and can be used for buildings and/or infrastructure. The true intention of BIM is ultimately to reduce waste and add value.

To date, BIM is described as Building Information Modelling, but use of the term modelling has resulted in confusion for many practitioners leading them to think ‘I need a model to do BIM’.  In fact, BIM is more concerned with Information Management than Information Modelling.

Our approach is to create a platform where information can be easily shared and utilised during design, construction and operation, making building performance an integrated part of the BIM process.

Why BIM 4 Analysis?

BIM4Analysis is a strategy to integrate analysis within the BIM process, providing VE users with a single platform for creating, capturing and taking advantage of valuable performance data during design, commissioning and operation. The strategy is concerned with implementing BIM as a mechanism to deliver Value, Cost and Carbon Improvement on all projects.

What are the benefits of the BIM4Analysis approach?

  • With the VE you can use just one technology at all stages of design and beyond to increase efficiency and streamline the process.
  • Import any Revit or other gbXML or IFC model into the VE for analysis.
  • Quantify, Optimise and Verify your building performance.
  • Iterative evaluation of data throughout entire building lifecycle to inform decisions and achieve targets.
  • Meet you client’s sustainability aspirations, while complying with the governments mandate to reduce waste in the construction and operation of our built environment.

Bim 4 Analysis at Every Stage

At each stage of the building life cycle, VE users can extract relevant information from the BIM process and run the various analyses listed below.

Interoperability

Integrating performance analysis into the heart of the design process, IES offers an unrivalled interoperability with other CAD design and analysis tools.

  • Free plugins for Revit Architecture and Revit MEP
  • Import gbxml or IFC from any source into the VE for analysis
  • Export gbxml from the VE for ‘round trip’
  • We’re involved in driving the development of gbXML and IFC to improve the bi-directional workflow between tools

Interoperability Navigator

The new Interoperability Navigator provides a step-by-step process for importing your model from whichever drawing tool you are using into the IESVE for analysis. All the import settings, modelling guidance and new functionality has been brought together within this single navigator to enhance the model import workflow.

  • VE for Architects

    By enabling informed sustainable design decisions you can be confident that the VE for Architects helps you deliver ambitious performance goals while seeking opportunities to keep costs appropriate. And more importantly it allows you to safeguard your design by ensuring you meet performance targets early on and continue to do so.

  • ERGON

    Our ERGON cloud service allows you to import, manage and interrogate real building profile or schedule data for use within your VE simulations. You can utilise measured data from the actual building you’re investigating to create profiles that enhance model calibration. Or use benchmark databases from other buildings of its type.
