The paper deals with the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) application to optimise the indoor environment through using the integrated design process. Usually, CFD modelling in buildings is a difficult procedure, because of time consumption and high cost as a stand-alone process. Both the time consumption and the cost can be reduced by using already existing data generated in various stages of building project. The integrated design process is a method to systemise the building project in a way that earlier calculations and design process could promote the quality of CFD simulation. The earlier more primitive computations help to identify where the rather complicated CFD simulation is required. The integration of different software tools used in building design process can be achieved through IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes) file format. By performing the air flow and contaminant simulations based on reliable numerical BC-s (Boundary Conditions) creates a unique possibility to optimise the indoor environment by comparing different system configurations. This method helps the engineer to choose the best alternative ensuring certain design criteria's and target levels.
