Potential applications of BIM to greenbuilding certifications (English)
Abstract [en]

In the construction industry today there is a significant technological revolution going

on. New methods for automated processes and information management are developed

continuously. Intense studies are currently taking place to ensure ways and means to

embrace the new technology of BIM.

At the present, environmental certification systems are considered cumbersome and

challenging. However, the increasing demands of sustainable development in the construction

industry imply that the environmental certifications will not disappear. This

Master Thesis examines the possibilities to apply BIM technology within the field of

environmental certifications to streamline the processes.

The applications that provide the best opportunities are:

- To use BIM to be able to, during the design stage, dynamically evaluate the result

or score a certain building will achieve.

- To avoid unnecessary work through collection of data for calculations directly

from a BIM-model.

- To be able to automate certain time consuming calculations that are currently

performed manually.

- To automatically examine the completed model to ensure that the demands are


The possibilities to use BIM within these areas are however limited by the technology

itself. Today there are no BIM applications within the field that work satisfyingly, which

hinders a large-scale implementation.
