English abstract:
Building information modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations regarding physical and functional characteristics of a construction. This paper
reports on the progress of a funded research project called BIMsustain. One focus of this project is to explore the practicability of data interchange from/to building performance calculation and simulation tools. Towards this end a case study was conducted: The designing and planning process for a medium size office building was simulated including architectural design, structural engineering, energy evaluation, and HVAC aspects.
Special attention was given to the processes, workflows, and data interoperability. For the designing and planning process different established software products were used and their potential for data exchange was compared. The intermediate results of this case study are presented with a special focus on the usability of building performance simulation and calculation tools in building information modeling.
