Buildings use over 40% of all energy on the planet. Of existing buildings, 99% are small commercial and residential buildings that use 80% of all energy in buildings. Each building in this group is generally too small to be of interest to the traditional professional who uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) or conducts sophisticated energy analysis. So, how are we going to solve this problem? We mash up the latest in mobile hardware, cloud services, augmented reality, and reality capture technologies to produce a solution that enables anyone who is able to play Angry Birds on an Apple® iPad® to analyze a small building in a fun and accurate way.

Key Learnings

  • Enrich your portfolio of service offerings
  • Describe the potential gains of sustainable constructions and retrofits
  • Describe opportunities for more effective monitoring and documentation of the construction process
  • Explain the energy impact of buildings and list ways to reduce energy consumption
