Applying LEEDv4.1 Standard using BIM








December 2019


Applying LEEDv4.1 Standard using EcoSpex Verified Data and BIM


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.
