    The ultimate objective of BIM (Building Information Modeling) is to design, construct, and operate more-efficient infrastructures with less impact to the environment. SYSTRA R&D teams developed two web-based solutions—CARBONTracker and SAFEbyBIM—to better simulate carbon emissions and reduce safety risks on projects using Forge and ArcGIS. This presentation will immerse you in a virtual demonstration of a project design review to show the benefits that BIM can provide ecodesigners and safety managers in their daily challenges to reduce these environmental and human impacts. The presentation will be in two parts. First, there will be a description of both applications’ functionalities. Then, we’ll perform a simulation of a design review around an asset to show how these solutions can support a more efficient integration of these disciplines into design processes by being able to extract the BIM data that’s created to provide the right information to the design teams in order to make design decisions taking into account carbon and safety impacts.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn about how BIM data can support more efficient safety risk management on a project
    • Better understand how BIM data can support more efficient integration of ecodesign objectives in a design process
    • Better understand how the Forge platform can foster the BIM data management on your project
    • Better understand the benefit of BIM data structuration on a project
