Bridging the Gap: Supporting Data Transparency from BIM to BEM

Apr 06, 2015

Many gaps exist between Building Information Modeling (BIM) authoring software and Building Energy Modeling (BEM) tools. One gap is the loss of data in the exchange between the design and energy simulation models. A methodology was created for the development of a Data Transparency Tool (DTT) that would allow the user to verify the data in the data models and then correct omissions. A demonstration version was produced to confirm the methodology.
