CATEGORY: Applying LEEDv4.1 Standard using a BIM process
CLIENT: George Brown College Research in collaboration with EcoSpex
The industry desperately needs tools, built on a foundation of accurate, verified, organized data. Data that is tailored to stages of design and construction, is able to adapt to project’s goals and constraints, and is optimized for each user. This allows practitioners to spend their time on design, construction, and innovation. We believe this vision is only possible by building the EcoSpex Platform with BIM360 and Revit. EcoSpex partnered with Centre for Construction and Engineering Technology (CCET) and at George Brown College (GBC) to review, update and analyze LEED4v.1 standards by utilizing EcoSpex verification process by testing materials and assemblies in a sample Building Information Modeling (BIM) model. Four Phases of the project included:
Phase 1: Project Initiation
Phase 2: Rating Standards Analysis
Phase 3: Modeling and Testing
Phase 4: Creation of Final Report /1 Video
Project Lead: Principal Investigator (PI) Nakhshab Ashraf-Poor, Professor, CCET
Project Manager (PM) Yuchen Sun, Acting Senior Project Manager, Research and Innovation and two CCET Student Research was conducted by Amal Abu-Jazar and Minh Diep.
Amal Madanat, Multiplex Design Manager & BIM Leader CCS, LEED AP. Responsibilities: Technical Peer Review BIM
Hali Larson – Autodesk Toronto R&D
Sandra Lester, Affecting Change, BTech. Arch.Science, LEED AP BD+C
Beth Stroshane, Applied Building Information CCS, LEED AP
Phase 2 – consideration to partner with a company that has manufacturing data to integration with EcoSpex verification process to enable a more efficient process for structured clean data for customers, deeper value and aligned data for BIM and LEED. A number of other strategies were identified to support the global need for sustainability of materials to BIM. Analysis on global strategies on best practices regarding sustainability of materials is a strategy worth exploring.
