Application of BIM technology in BREEAM certification

Abstract

Energy consumption is widely studied in the world together with the topic of how to reduce the use of resources during the entire life cycle of the building – energy consumption is related to the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air. BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is the world’s most widespread real estate impact assessment method and certification standard. In BREEAM certification the evaluation of health and quality of life in buildings, construction materials, innovation, economic and social responsibility, energy, water management, ecology, and pollution must be done. For collection of the precise data the Building Information Modelling (BIM) was used as a tool. BIM is increasingly used in the world not only for design but also for the entire life cycle management of the building. The BIM application ensures efficient use of resources and smoother construction management. This article explores the application of BIM technologies in BREEAM certification, identifying potential benefits and limitations.

BIM technologijų taikymo analizė sertifikuojant pagal BREEAM


Santrauka


Siekiant sumažinti išteklių naudojimo mastą viso pastato gyvavimo ciklo metu, pasaulyje plačiai nagrinėjama energijos vartojimo tema – energijos vartojimas, susijęs su anglies dvideginio (CO2) išmetimu į orą. BREEAM (angl. Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), yra tarp plačiausiai pasaulyje paplitusių nekilnojamojo turto poveikio vertinimo metodų ir sertifikavimo standartų. Sertifikuojant pagal BREEAM būtina vertinti sveikatą ir gyvenimo kokybę pastatuose, statybines medžiagas, inovacijas, ekonominę ir socialinę atsakomybę, energiją, vandentvarką, ekologiją ir taršą. Statinio informacinis modeliavimas (angl. Building Information Modelling, BIM) vis plačiau pasaulyje naudojamas ne tik projektams rengti, bet ir visam pastato gyvavimo ciklo valdyti. Taikant BIM, efektyviau naudojami ištekliai ir užtikrinamas sklandesnis statybų valdymas. Šiame straipsnyje tiriamos BIM technologijų taikymo galimybės sertifikuojant pagal BREEAM, nustatomos galimos naudos ir apribojimai.
