Network for Using BIM to Increase the Energy Buildings Performance
Net-UBIEP aims at increasing energy performance of buildings by wide spreading and strengthening the use of BIM, during the life cycle of the building. The use of BIM will allow to simulate the energy performance of the building using different materials and components, both the to be used in the building design and/or in building design refurbishment.
BIM, which stands for Building Information Modeling, is a process that lasts for all the building life cycle from the design phase through the construction, management, maintenance, demolish. In each of this phase is very important to take into account all the energy aspects in order to decrease the environmental impact of the building during its life cycle.
