Buildings are responsible for the largest share of energy use of all sectors (38 percent), have the largest share of carbon-dioxide emissions after the power sector, and through building envelopes have the largest share of impact on building energy and comfort.
How can building information modeling (BIM) not just represent but also simulate building envelopes for air, water leakage, and optimization?
This course proposes that this could be our industry “moon shot” to achieve processes, technologies, and organizational transformation to improve envelope performance.
