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?
Integrating performance analysis into the heart of the design process, IES offers an unrivalled interoperability with other CAD design and analysis tools.
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 Engineers can be used to test different design options, identify best passive solutions, compare low-carbon technologies, and draw conclusions on energy use, CO2 emissions, occupant comfort, light levels, airflow, Part L, BREEAM, LEED, EPC ratings, and much more.
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.
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.
